I wake up every morning about 5:30 and co wash my hair. A girl in my classes pointed out that my hair was still extremely wet on the inside at about 3:00 pm. I decided to check it before I went to sleep and that part was still soaking wet. Next morning it was still a little damp. I started checking it all week and everyday it was still wet the next morning. I have tight curls the majority just a little bigger than pen springs. That are maybe 7 inches stretched out but shrink and look two inches long.
