Many of us don’t take too kindly to shrinkage, but shrinkage isn’t all bad
which is why when I did this post discovering #shrinkageisthedevil was not surprising. I am sure many of you can relate to getting asked, “Did you cut your hair?”, when all you may have done to your hair was wash it.
Some naturals have as much as 80% shrinkage, making our hair length appear strikingly deceiving to others. If you think about it, having some mystery to our length is kind of cool so why not embrace it? The truth is shrinkage is actually a good sign that your hair is healthy.
Here are 15 inspiring photos of naturals
