Shammies?

Anyone tried a shammy? Sometimes my hair has so much water (and therefore weight!) that I want to try a sham-wow with a t-shirt over it!! Lol!

What do you use to try to get a lot of excess water out?

If I need water out quickly without frizzing, I've plopped into a t-shirt, then layered a terry towel over top. Pressing /squeezing the towel against the t-shirt pulls out a lot of excess water in a short amount of time. Depending on what you need during the drying process, a t-shirt turban with terry towel over top might work too.

I tried the sham-wow!! Hahaha
The time I plopped with it, it looked really bad, and the time I just blotted with it, it left me really frizzy. Honestly, I've tried that, t-shirts, and drip drying, but I've found the best is just a plain terry cloth works best. I blot a few times, and it gives me nice, frizz-free curls

See, I was thinking I'd try a shammy with a t-shirt over it (or rather under it, I guess?) just for blotting. Especially as it gets colder, I can't have my hair be as wet as I have it these days!

A regular terry cloth? And it doesn't give you frizz or break up your clumps?? Idk if that would work with my hair... Might try it sometime, tho!

After I shower, I do the super soaker, apply my leave-in, and then gently, gently blot my hair with the towel. After that, I scrunch in my styler. HTH!
