Natural hair and the way it shrinks. I tell you, the shrinking game of Natural hair is real o. That’s how someone will come and say, ‘so your hair is not even that long’ and while you are fighting for words to describe natural hair shrinkage, you begin to stammer. Because, really, what the heck! My hair is freaking longer that what you see man.
Well, apart from its fake appearance, there are other reasons you want your natural hair stretched out. When your natural hair is stretched out, it makes it easy for you to style in different ways. It is also easier to manage than when it is all compressed.
A big issue however, is the heat that is involved. Too much heat can destroy your hair. It causes breakage and can stunt your hair growth. You honestly don’t want this after all of the efforts you have put into making your natural hair shine
