I always wrap my hair in a towel when I get out of the shower. Then I put a small amount of hair product in it and then wait till it is practically dry to dry and style it. I don’t like drying my hair. These towels absorb so much of the water out that I don’t have to wait that long and the actual blow drying time is a lot less. I love these hair towels. They are a great buy and well worth it.
