too funny!! same thing happened to me!!I've been growing my hair out and but I was frustrated with my fine limp curls as I know I had more curl to give. When I started applying what I learned on this site, my hair shrunk 2 inches at least! I loved the curls but missed my length. 2nd day hair gives me a nice balance as my curls have loosened up and my hair is longer.
Hair: lots of fine 2c/3a
Length: Mid back
Shampoo:Shea moisture coconut hibiscus
