Is there a good drying method
I squeeze as much water out while I'm still in the shower. Then I do the same thing with towel, and then to help the progress along hen it's cold out, I use a blow drier. It works just fine, just don't use it too much and it one place for long. You want to move it around like real wind.
I've never had a problem. But mine are over 5 years old now. If they're new, it's better to just let them air dry. If you use a towel, just squeeze and pet them. Rubbing your hair will only undo knots and set back the progress
