when i ordered mine, about 10 days ago, i did get the 15% off.
which coupon code are you using? oh, maybe i used the thanksgiving one?? cannot remember.
honestly, even without the 15% off, i still feel it is worth buying! i may eventually buy a 2nd pair for myself, so i don't need to worry if i lose them when traveling. i am going to let my daughter try mine and may buy her a pair, and also my daughter-in-law. will see as time goes on with them, but so far i am very pleased.

Jury is still out for me. I think they are fine and I'm not unhappy that I bought them, but I'm not sure that they do anything the curl towels don't do. If you are undecided about what to get, Curlease, Curls Like Us or these--I think it would be a hard decision for me, if I could only have one.

ETA--I'd buy extra large flour sacks instead of Curlease. They work as well and are MUCH less expensive.

I finally got the HDHG. I have tried them in different dew points and tried various products with them and I get a whole lot of frizz every time. I do get more volume in places but I also get wonky wierd stubborn curls and scalp showing. I do not think it is possible with the fuzzy texture to get no frizz even if just scrunching a little and air drying the rest. I thought I could get more lift at the crown area but it looked worse because I got lift everywhere else. As far as diffusing goes, I have much more control with my fingers and get better lift at the crown that way and my towel works better than the glove. I may buy some thick cotton jersey gloves to experiment with.

UPDATE: I have not stopped using these; I finally learned when to stop scrunching. I just scrunch and hold for a few seconds and move on to the next section. These gloves have replaced my CLU Towels.

I've never used the "Real' hand dry gloves, but had great results with inexpensive men's polarfleece winter gloves. http://www.poloshirtsandmore.com/gl01.htmlI paid about $3 at the supermarket for them.

Default bumping because these gloves are great

I really like these gloves! I thought they looked so hokey at first, but they are super absorbent and all that extra scrunching gives me lots of curls and great volume. Theses have definitely upstaged my CLU cloths.

I was wondering why it says these are made of microfiber? I'm guessing it's a different kind than I had in my mind. I thought all microfiber was kinda sleek and flat.

while reading a thread about plopping, i'm thinking that maybe plopping does not work for me as any of the hair towels make my hair frizzy beyond getting out the drips.

i was wondering how it would be to plop with the materials that do work for me, ie, fleece (the hand gloves) and satin. the satin is easy, i could just use a pillowcase, but how do i get a large piece of fleece to plop with ? any ideas?

I won't plop. Don't have the patience for it. I pseudo plop with floursack towels and it takes less than 3 minutes. I get 4-5 good floursack towels and while upside down, I scrunch up (with my hands under the towel), and just hold it still in the scrunched up to my scalp position, fingers really pushing in to get the water out. I get my Denman and brush hair several times from root to ends, which gets more water to ends. I scrunch again and hold. You can feel the water coming out as you hold.

Repeat.
Repeat.

By the time I'm done with the four to five towels (and I have porous hair, so I need at least that many), my hair is a good way towards drying. The brushing helps to keep hair from sticking to scalp, so helps volume. Then I add my product to the damp (not soaking) hair.

My hair dries so much faster since I started doing that and stopped supersoaking (which for my porous hair, not such a great idea cause drying time was nuts. Lovely clumps though.)

I got the Hand Dry Gloves and while they absorbed water nicely and you could encourage curl, it made me pretty frizzy. MUCH MUCH more frizzy than floursack towels. So, buh-bye. Gave em to my sister.

I would try a fabric store.

But I also have question-do you not use a hairdryer at all?

i have a t3 hand dryer that i use if i need to dry my hair quickly, which is not very often.
i work at home, so i usually can afford the 2 hours it takes to dry after i use the hand gloves.
just thought plopping might make it easier to put on moisturizer, etc., after showering.

I work from home as well so I was interested in this. I use my diffuser for about 10 minutes tops and then let it airdry but there are times I would like it fully dry (days I do have to see clients or go into the office). I may break down and get these!

I have very thick hair that takes about 6 hours or more to dry. The hand Dry Gloves work great for my hair. They don't give me frizz & reduce my hair drying time greatly. I also like how I can scrunch my hair with them. I just avoid directly touching the top crown part of my hair because I tend to frizz there in general. I scrunch my hair upside down with them & than plop my hair for 20-30mins. Than I just let my hair air dry.

Default uk?

has anyone in the UK bought it?
and where from?? I'm really intrigued by it but the shipping costs on curlmart are higher than the price of the actual product! so, as you can guess, thats put me off.
Anyone have any idea if theres somewhere UK or europe based that I can get it from?
