I also have the turby twist and I think I will take that with me on my cruise, because it is pink and won't get mistaken with the other towels and carted away.

Yes, but try to find one that is cut so that it wraps into a turban style and then has an elastic that hooks the end onto itself. They also dry faster after using them than the terry ones.
I'm a little confused.
I understand why the OP would want to know if the microfiber towel takes more water out of the hair faster than the usual terry towel.
But why would anyone wrap their hair in a turban/towel for any longer than the few minutes it takes to stop water from dripping?
For how long do you keep it in the towel? Once the excess water is taken out, why would you keep the towel on your head?
After I get out of the shower I wrap my hair in a terry towel for a few minutes, then remove it, make some coffee and proceed to blow out my hair. Why would I keep it in a towel? Seems it would only serve to keep it damp and I want it to dry.
I see that others do what you do too, and I'm totally baffled as to why.
Maybe yardage stores sell the microfiber material and one can make their own TT with microfiber.
Jane--The longer you leave the towel on, the dryer your hair gets and the less you need to use the bad-for-colored hair hairdryer--that's my excuse. But still--I'm only talking 10 minutes, not all morning or anything But you can also do a deep conditioning treatment, wrap your hair in saran wrap, then turban the towel to warm up the conditioner....
My first towel was a gift (don't know where it came from) second was from Bed Bath & Beyond I think, and most recent was from www.sierratradingpost.com
I had a swim chamois at one point and don't like that on my hair. Yes, it dries quickly, but I don't like the way it feels. I'm sort of odd that way--feel is very important
