what the best hair towel?

I'm very porous and my hair gets waterlogged so easily. I Spritz & Condish and that helps but I need a better towel to plop with before I add anything after my final rinse. My hair just has too much water in it for my products to work properly.

A large t-shirt doesn't have the absorbtion I need so I need to know what other 2's are loving.
shoulder length inverted bob; fine; 3A-3B; med-thick density; normal porosity; normal elasticity- my hair loves keratin, ACV, silk protein ,Curlkeeper and AG:Recoil ; seems to hate moisturizing products and oils except mineral oil; CG- Jan/'09-mod CG Sept/'09;CG again Jan/'10/mod CG from Mar'10

receive $10 off 1st order of $40 & up, or $5 off on smaller orders, when using iHERB code: GIK909
I love my microfiber towel. Got it at ulta. I also have a microfiber turbie twist I got at Sally's that's very nice, I got the knock offs at Dollar General and I'm not very happy with them. Stick to the name brand. =) but definately the Turbie twist for plopping.
Hair type: 2a/b, medium to fine texture, medium to high porosity (I think!)
Routine: Occasionally wash with Lavender baby shampoo. CO wash with Garnier triple nutrition conditioner, use a nickel sized blob as a leave in, scrunch out a little water, scrunch in some aloe gel (FOTE), then scrunch in some Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee (BRHG). Plop with a backwards turbie twist for 10 min - to overnight.

I have a microfiber towel and a microfiber turban by Aquis that I love. Both are great at absorbing extra water from my hair. I got them both at Marshall's for under $10 each.

I don't use my turbie twist to plop so much anymore. I got a ton of flour sack towels and they are really handy.

BUT, when I did do it, I used it backwards. I put it with the large round part at the top of my head, lowered my head into the "bowl" of the turbie, making sure all the hair was down in the bowl, and then would twist from the back. It was kinda hard at that point to use the button, or elastic thing to secure it, so I'd take a big jaw clamp thing and attach it to where-ever it would reach.

Worked for me heh.

Thanks, Goob. I have one that I used in the straightening days, but I couldn't figure out how to plop with it. I may have to try it at some point.
