My sister told me about this. They sell it at Bed Bath and Beyond for $10, so I got one the other day. It's 18 by 36 inches and comes inside a reusable zippered travel pouch.

I don't have a Curls Like Us or CurlEase towel so I can't say how it compares to those. I've only tried it once so far, but it definitely got my hair dryer than using a t-shirt to scrunch out extra water after applying products.
I think it's too small to plop with, but I thought about putting it inside of the flour sack towel I usually use to plop with to see if it makes a difference. If I do try that, I'll report back.
Has anyone tried this or been able to compare it to some of the other specialty hair towels?
