Stretch your curls with these shrinkage-minimizing natural hair techniques.
It happens often, you spend time styling your wet hair for it to eventually shrink up to a shorter length. You may feel frustrated because you want to show off the length that you worked hard for. Shrinkage is normal for curlies, especially those with Type 3 and 4 curls. These tips can reduce shrinkage with hair.
Stretched Hair Styles
Hair styles such as twist outs, braid outs, Bantu knots, and roller sets allow the hair to be stretched. While styling, apply a small amount of hair butter, such as Shea Butter, to hair. The butter will add more weight to the hair by allowing it to hang more. At night, maintain twist outs and braid outs by re-twisting or re-braiding. This will achieve elongated hair.
