Hey

I usually wash em at about 4 a clock in the afternoon.. And sometimes when im on my way to bed, which probably is about 10-11 at the night, and some of them are still humid and something after several hours..

And some of my tips are blunted but not on purpose, they just blunted themself..

Any advice on this or anything?

Headbanging like mad to fling most of the water out speeds things up for me, but then, I have space to where throwing water around isn't a problem.

If it's really cold out (talking well below the point of freezing) make sure you cover 'em with something that insulates well if they're moist. I don't know how much damage frozen locks take, but it isn't worth risking.
I'm currently crocheting myself a nice big poofy hat from Icelandic wool for just that reason (gotta make it myself as my head's big to start with and there's no way I can get a hat that fits me and my locks locally... so... DIY!)

I got the idea on here to buy 2 sham wows and sew them together and use like a towel. It works really well, just wrap it on like a towel (not super tight) and leave it till you get dressed and most water is absorbed. Then I blow dry off and on til totally dry.
