Advantages: quick & easy to use, stays in place, saves on washing loads of towels
Disadvantages: a little thin but does the job
I have fairly long hair, as do both my daughters, so towels are forever in the washing machine as you can imagine. It seems to have become the habit for my daughters to use a towel for drying the body whilst at least one more for drying the hair so I was pleased to find a product that saves me washing numerous towels quite so often.
I had seen these Turbie Towels on the high street for a few pounds, on Amazon for £1.50, then finally I was tempted trying one when I saw them in our local pound shop. If you are really interested in saving the pennies I believe they are 99p in Wilkinsons....
Since then I have purchased 2 more because they are so good once you remember to add it to your bath/ shower routine ( at first we usually forgot to take them out of the airing cupboard!).
The picture featured by Dooyoo is a good clear one as you can see how the Turbie fits plus you can see the directions on how to use it on the right hand side - often pictures speak louder than words but here goes...
Firstly I think it is best to use another towel to take the excess water off the hair, bend over, place the Turbie over the back of the neck,, twist the hair within the hood, then button up to the loop. Sounds complicated but takes only a second so it is probably clearer to follow the pictures on the box than read my attempt.
They come in different colours so we have white and yellow and basically they are well-designed, lightweight towels which absorb well and wash & dry easily after use. They are not as thick as premier towels but good enough to stop any dripping and once buttoned up the hair, however heavy, does not seem to move much at all which means you can do more or less what you like without having to wrestle with normal wet towels which inevitably, even when wrapped turban-style, come undone after any exertion.
I have to say, for a quid, these are a pretty good buy as they last for ages and are useful to have at home or for taking away on holiday as they fold up neatly, take up very little space and dry much quicker than a normal towel. The Turbie Towel is a nifty invention and well worth trying out in our opinion.
