For the Love of Shrinkage

Saturday, September 29, 2012

After wearing my hair stretched for about a month after I removed my mini twists - I was really excited to do a wash and go and to see my shrunken kinky curls again. It's amazing to see just how much my hair shrinks up, but shrinkage doesn't bother me one bit - I love it! For the wash and go pictured above, I used a diffuser to dry my hair and set my curls because I decided to do all of this late one evening and I didn't want to go to bed with wet hair. Normally I just air dry - but because I did this wash and go shortly before bedtime, using the diffuser was critical. By the way - Though it took me forever and a day to do my mini twists, I honestly think the mini twist break I gave my hair made a huge difference because it has been feeling really awesome ever since!

  1. I have yet to use any heat on my hair since I became %100 natural. I'm thinking about maybe for my birthday in January to flat iron. We'll see. Your curls are popping!

    1. I've only straightened my hair once since going natural. But I totally feel you....every now and then I get curious and would love to see my hair straightened again. But I's scared...LOL. Which is why so far I can only work up the courage to use low, indirect heat from diffusing only on occasion, lol.
