Hi Marieli. I purchased this towel a week or so ago, and I really like it. It does seem to absorb the water more quickly than a regular towel, and my curls are much prettier and tighter. I watched a YouTube video by Kathleen Lights about her natural hair routine, and she loves the DevaCurl towel. I encourage you to look up her video to see how she uses it before you buy it. If you do get it and don't like it, you can always return it.
