We all know that curly and coily hair is prone to shrinkage but I wasn't expecting this. Shrinkage
is the extra tight coiling of the hair that normally happens after your hair is wet. This makes the hair appear much shorter than the hairs actual length. It is well known that black hair, in its natural state, can shrink up to 80 percent of its actual length. Now while my hair looks a bit below shoulder length in the photos, my hair stretched out, reaches my waist. Not only was my hair shorter than usual, but it also lacked it usual volume which was disappointing because I love big hair.
If you also love volume and your hair is low density like mine, this might not be for you. While this is the case, this method is amazing for really locking the moisture into your hair, and shrinkage is proof of this as moisturised hair shrinks more.
