Shrinkage: Friend Or Foe?

Is shrinkage your friend or foe? For me, it's both. Sometimes I like it and other times it bugs the crap out of me.
"It moisturizes my situation... preserves my sexy."
It's both for me.

I normally don't mind shrinkage, but I think it gets nerve-wrecking when half of your hair wants to do one thing, and the other half wants to do something else. I'd prefer consistent shrinkage compared to sporadic shrinkage, if that makes any sense.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

What Shy said. One of the things I love about shrinkage is how unique mine is to my head and look and feel of my hair. I like the denseness it gives my hair. Honestly, I think the shrinkage of my hair lets me know how healthy it is. If it suddenly didn't shrink I'd be worried something was wrong.
Foe. I like when I have as little shrinkage as possible. Curl activator and IC gel mix help a lot as does Care free curl's moisturiser.
Didn't like it much until I cut my hair uneven, then it was my best friend! Now that it's all evened up I wish all the little squinkles would stretch out to their full potential!

Id have to say both. Mainly because I love when myhair is streched and I can see my length but when I accept my shrinkage it allows for a totally diffent look.

Curls Milkshake current leave in, Fantasia IC w/Olive Oil gel for smoothing/shine, Curls Goddess Glaze for Twist/Braid outs.
honestly, shrinkage would be my best friend if it were perfectly consistent each and every time. but i never know what part of my hair is gonna shrink more than others... so shake 'n gos are not for me!
