Believe or not I literally threw out the microfiber towel. I found when I use the towel my fair frizzed more, especially if I used it before applying my styling products.
I have found that apply my products to soaking hair is better. Then I use an old t-shirt to blot to take away the dripping. I then plop overnight.
I also learned that changing 1 step in a routine can alter the final product. It took me a good 6 months before I was getting consistent results and product and styling techniques that worked well together.
I just had my hair cut at Devachan and I wasn't impressed with their products. I did buy the ArcAngel gel and to me the best thing about it was the smell of oranges. Big deal I can add orange oil to my gel if I need to.
