    I use a towel. I wrap my head in it, let it sit for about 10 minutes, then wrap the towel around my shoulders and let it drip dry the rest of the way for styling

    A towel. I should probably switch that up. But my hair curly is short and I don't use the towel for long. At least that's my excuse.

    Towel, but I think I may need to upgrade.

    I own a turbie twist but it doesn't see any action unless I use it to provide extra heat for my dc. My hair is high porosity so I just ring out the water and clip my hair into 1-4 bantu knots until it's at the dampness I need. I pat my edges with a shirt or towel to get rid of the drippies. Using a towel, microfiber, or tshirt gets my hair too dry before I'm ready to style it.

    I use a t-shirt. Anything else causes my strands to snap.

    I have a twistie turbie that I used to use, but now I'm hooked on using a t-shirt. It's works best for me especially when air drying. It gives me smoother results and like others mentioned it doesn't snag my hair.

    Turbie. But I'm thinking about switching, because I feel like it tangles. Or it could be because I need a trim really badly. . . . :blush2:

    I have two turbies, but I'm not really fans of them for drying my hair. Tried microfiber towels a couple of times and felt like I still had frizz. Lately, I have been using 100% cotton t shirts if any excess water is left in my hair after squeezing out, when I don't want to style on completely wet hair!

    This is random, but I have also used these before after spotting them in my dad's garage, and they actually worked pretty well to get excess product/gel out of my dripping wet hair post wash n go! I just scrunched my hair a couple times, then went about my day air drying, no issues!

    I use a towel. I let it sit for 10 minutes and then I add all my products. But, I'm thinking of getting a microfiber towel.

    towel or turbie!
    I use a towel most times because its closer at had. I dont swoosh and rub though.
    T-Shirts get too soaked too quickly.

    I use a microfiber towel or the turbie twist. I prefer the towel though b/c I can get all my hair in it

    I have been using t shirts for a while, but as stated above it just gets soggy and wet so fast. I just bought a pack of 2 turbies, which I plan to try this weekend!
