Default Hair Towels!!

I have long/thick hair that takes an eternity to dry. After taking a shower, I like to put my hair in a towel to help it dry. Why dont cruise lines/ hotels make a towel that I can put around my head! If I use a regular sized towel, its like I have a 10 lb. bucket on my head, and if I use a hand towel, it doesnt exactly fit around my head with all my hair! haha. Is it just me that has this problem??

I hear you and feel your pain! I have short hair and do the same thing and have the same problem. Can we get on board with a pair of scissors? We could customize it

Maybe I am just used to a large towel wrapped around my very long, extra thick (ask any of the CMers who have met me), but it isn't something that bothers me. The towels I use at home are large and abosorbant and I would love to have it for my hair on a cruise or in a hotel. I find those towels to not be as effective as the ones I have at home in absorbing extra moisture. When I exit the shower, I wrap my hair and leave the towel on for about 15 mins - the size or weight doesn't bother me. I guess I am just used to it.

I take my turbie twist towel with me. I bought them at Walgreens (3 for $15.00 or so). They are the perfect size for your head and all of my hair fits into it. (I have hair down to the middle of my back). I take two so that they can dry in between washes. Best investment I have every made.


I found this website so you could see what they look like. I have never used this website company (I bought them at Walgreens) so use website at your own risk.

Let me know what you think if you get some to use.
