so i got some shamwows not too long ago, and i finally used one to dry my dreads after washing and it worked really well! i rung out my dreads 1st in 2 sections then i just flipped my head over and used it just like a regular towel, also scrunching my dreads in the shamwow. after a min or 2 of doing this, they were almost completely dry! so it worked awesome!! just thought i would let you guys know incase any one was curious about shamwows haha

the regular shamwow doesnt get fuzzy, but the key to them i guess is not to put them in the dryer. i didnt have any fuzz balls in my dreads, but the down side is it wasnt large enough!!! why couldnt they put 4 of um together?! now that would be great!

If I am not mistaken the shamwow should be microfibre right?..if it is there should be virtually no lint. I have Norwex clothes and towels. They are microfibre and leave no lint. Just wash the cloths with jeans or socks an undies. NEVER with other towels..cuz then you will have lint BIG TIME!I was actually wondering why no one said to use microfibre to dry your dreads with. I use it to dry my hair already, and sometimes I have to re-wet my hair to do it..LOLUgh can't wait til I'm dready..no more hair doing..YAY!

Electric Mama...not dready yet :( seems like I keep getting in my own way, kwim? I'll get there eventually! Timing is everything!You could try "stripping" the microfibre. First boil the "beep" out of it for 30 mins. Keep it covered with water all the time. Then wash it in the hottest water possible(don't burn yourself) with Original Dawn dish soap. It takes all the gunk off! Just a teeny squirt..then rinse it really well. It should fluff it up. I use Dawn to get my cloth diapers nice and clean :) When the Exxon Valdez poured oil into the ocean, Dawn was what was used to clean the birds. Washed the oil off of their feathers!Knottysleeves said:
I do have a microfibre towel, but it's so old and been thrown into the wash with linty stuff so many times that it's just not sucking up much water anymore. It worked so well when I first got it!
