I love this towel! Previously I used to wrap towels around my head but they invariably fell loose, or just pulled down on my hair. This towel fits perfectly on the head and has an elastic band at the top which you loop around a button near the nape of your neck to secure the towel in place. It fits so snugly and comfortably. I had it on all day once and it never moved an inch. They are also really handy for oil treatments, since you can wrap your hair away stopping the oil getting on your clothes or furniture. I'm going to be buying some more to allow me to alternate if the other is in the wash.
