FYI the reason it is small is because it was not made to be wrapped around your head like a turban. I have done a lot of research on the brand and they specifically mention how wrapping a towel around your head like a turban leads to frizz. You're just supposed to scrunch with it to remove excess water.

Way too small and too thin. I wouldn't recommend especially not for the price. It does nothing special and costs the same amount as a bath towel.

Like you, I found the size of this towel a bit, small. I have thick, curly, waist-length hair and much to my surprise, I was able to work with the towel! Basically, what I do is, after cleansing/conditioning, I:
1. Squeeze out the excess water (not all of it, just a really quick squeeze to get my hair to not drip so much).
2. Put my hair up in a loose twist and secure it with a hair claw (?) - mine is specifically for thick hair so it really holds.
3. Wrap the towel around and secure it just like I would with a bandana doing a Rosie the Riveter style. This stops my hair from dripping, doesn't allow the hair to overdry.
Hope that helps. I figure, I have pretty long hair that is thick and very curly (spiral curls), and if I can do it, perhaps you can too! Good luck!

I posted steps in a review on the towel. Wash and condition-don't rinse ALL of the conditioner out. Also, consider just using the conditioner some days and not the shampoo--it's called co-washing-works well. Then scrunch hair to get excess moisture out. Use about a quarter-size dollop of the gel in your starter kit. Get it to cover your hair but do NOT use too much. Then scrunch hair with towel. At this point new products come in--consider the spray gel or the styling cream-just a bit of either. If your hair gets frizzy, use about 2-3 squirts of the "Set it Free"-not too much or it will weigh down your hair. Then use a dryer with a diffuser on the end and scrunch hair from ends to scalp and hold it there and move on to next section. Move around head. Then let your hair sit for about 45 min. I'm on my way to work at that point. Then scrunch hair from ends to roots to break up the cast this left on it so it isn't crunchy. Run your fingers on your scalp to break up the ribbons of curls-I do this as I drive. Then follow with the flexible hair spray and your hair will last about 2-3 days.
