  2. Hi girls,

    Today I would like to share my experience with you to help you guys if needed.

    I also have extremely thick hair and I agree that it takes hours to completely dry this hair. Even when I use a hairdryer, these tresses don’t dry easily and quickly. To get rid of this problem what I do is I wrap my wet hair with a microfiber hair towel for more than a few minutes. This towel soaks most of the moisture from my thick manes and also reduces drying time by several minutes.

    If you are facing the same problem, then you can try it too. I am sure this will help you a lot.
