I have a set of bright orange microfiber towels from WalMart. I love them. They're not very large - but they draw plenty of water off your hair without over-drying. So you're left with better-formed waves and curls. The smaller-than-a-bath-towel size makes it easy to scrunch-dry your hair. I used to use t-shirts, but the microfiber towels are more efficient for the impatient person.
2c with 2a &b mixed in, normal fine, normal thin, porous mid-back lengthPros: They soak up a butt load of water. Fairly inexpensive. Pretty versatile in regards to styling techniques you can use them for. Cons: They tend to create some surface frizz for me.The size/shape of most automotive microfiber towels make plopping with them impossible.
One thing about any MF towel- don't throw them in the dryer. This will make them rougher and catchier over time. I expect that would increase frizz. They never go to waste. MF towels clean surfaces like no one's business. Professional maids use these like mad. They are amazing for cleaning.
