How can I control shrinkage? Is it permanent? I have 4c high porosity hair.
I have been natural for almost a year, my hair shrinks up to almost 80% and I just don't know how to stop my shrinkage. Is this permanent? How can I stop this??
shrinkage is part of natural hair and I struggle with it too because even though my hair neck length when straightened (the bottom hairs are near the bottom of my neck so I still consider it neck negate and most reaches to the middle and downwards) but when natural the top appears he longer because it has a different much looser curl pattern to the hair at the bottom so it leaves my head looking unbalanced. So shrinkage is normal and occurs always if your hair is healthy , and twisting your hair and straighten aithlur head would great ways of reducing shrinkage.
