Inspired by the not-so-shocking natural hair shrinkage photos on the blackgirllonghair.com blog post. The shrinkage struggle is SO real…
(This is my hair)
Truth is, many of us consider shrinkage evil (I do!). But it’s actually a great inductor for healthy hair. If your curls revert back to its normal pattern, you’re in great shape. If it doesn’t, it’s obvious your methods (be it blow outs or other various stretch techniques) are doing you no good.
So, pay attention to your hair signals. Embrace the shrinkage and enjoy the journey.
Until next time,
