|Straight out the shower, look at that shrinkage!|
Many blog posts say that naturally curly ladies experience up to 75% shari shrinkage. Meaning, the amount of length your hair retracts when wet/moist. Done people have more, some people have less.
I'm at 75% for real! My hair is quite curly but it shrinks down to the look of a TWA when wet. That's why I'm not a fan of wash 'n go styles. I live big full hair.
So, of you are like me, what do you do about shrinkage? Do you accept it? Do you blow your hair out with a blow dryer? Twist-outs, braid-outs, or Bantu knots? Do you straighten it?
Lets talk and share techniques!
