t-shirts to dry hair?
I am a 2B (I think) with fine hair and either medium or high porousity and I just recently started trying a modified CG and I found this website. I've really enjoyed looking around and all the tips. I was curious about one thing, though. Everyone says you shouldn't use terry cloth on your hair and I understand that, but when I tried a t-shirt instead, it didn't soak up hardly any water. I've tried it two or three times and it wasn't any better than just not having any kind of towel. I tried scrunching with it and I tried wrapping my head in the towel and water ran down my back, but the t-shirt hardly got wet. Is that normal? I just wondered if that's how it's supposed to be or if I'm doing something wrong. I'm just using older, more threadbare terry cloth for now, but I still have this outer layer of frizz on my hair and I wonder if it is from the towels.
