Jan 16, 2011 - I received this towel for Christmas (even though I asked for a different towel). I received the white one, and I agree with the other reviewer that it seems like cheesecloth. This towel isn't very absorbent, certainly not at all compared to a microfiber towel. The photo of the product and the instructions recommend using this as a turban, which is a big no-no for curly hair. While I don't plop/plunk, I did try it once to see if it would be a good towel for it and it is. But again, it doesn't really absorb. What I did find it worked for was for scrunching while diffusing. I found it really helped to keep the curl pattern from frizzing. Overall I would not recommend this towel because of the lack of absorbency.
