This product does work better then a standard towel and is obviously a lot less damaging, however a cotton t-shirt would do the same job at a fraction of the price.
I was a bit dubious about buying this - as it seemed expensive for a bit of a fabric (that I thought I might be able to make myself!).... but it was my birthday so I thought I'd treat myself. In fact it's actually perfect - the right size, really nice texture - and much easier to use that using an old t-shirt!!
Easy to 'plop' the hair into and the finished style is so much softer than a regular towel - even a microfiber towel.
I hesitated for ages about buying as it is pricey but glad I did as it is more effective than a cheap microfibre towel. Would be great if they came in more colours.
Lovely and soft and I use it regularly!
This towel is decent quality and it certainly has made a difference to drying my curls compared with a regular towel. However, it is basically good quality tshirt material and i expect that a much cheaper solution would be to buy or use an old tshirt you have lying around. Or a baby cot sheet. Its basically the same material - jersey cotton.
I like my Trepadora towel and will continue to use it because I already have it, but it is expensive, very expensive, for what it is.
