Much nicer to use than the big bath towel, my neck thanks me when I grab this item. I use this before I comb out the after-shower tangles and use it again after my hair is all combed out to help dry it just a little bit faster. I also love to use this when I am going to lay down for a nap and don't want my pillow to get wet. I like the colors available and when needed, I throw it in the laundry. Comes out perfectly.
