Default Curls Like Us?

Does anyone use these? Are they better than flour sack towels?

I have a couple. I got them as soon as I started scrunching and plopping so I never tried any other material.

I don't know how it would work for very long hair (mine isn't quite to my shoulders) but I plop in to the towel and then take the "ears" and wrap them under the base of my head. It's not long enough to tie so I take a fabric headband or one of the bands made of elastic type material and slip it on my head. This holds the towel in place if I've plopped and wrapped securely.

The towels also pack quite nicely and dry fairly quickly so they're great if I'm on the road.

I love them! I've never tried flour sack towels. I've been using them for about a month now. They are a tad small for plopping but i manage

My hair is too long to plop in them, but I love them. I've tried flour sacks and the gloves (can't remember the name at the moment), and the CLU cloths are my favorite by far. I highly recommend them!

I have a new curlease that I just got to plop (haven't tried yet) instead of my typical flour sack or tshirt. I think its bigger than the CLU? I'd be curious to hear from someone who has both what the difference in thickness is.

ETA - Thanks for the link gekko - that answered my questions perfectly!
