Natural Hair Update

Apologies in advance for the bad light and blur.
Photo was taken with android, inside of car. Background was in focus. It was a candid pic.
Trust me, I had a HAT with me that day. I am not comfy just yet. I dare not share that pic as it was clownish. Big earrings, scarf and baseball cap? Fashion faux pas! Pic just 1! Right now, I'm struggling with fairy knots. My hair is just dry! I will be the 1st to admit I am a slacker when it comes to regularly deep conditioning. I have really fallen off when it comes to daily moisturizing & sealing.
I need to step up my game. I wore these twists for a quick errand. My hair was super tangled when I undid the twists. I don't think I'll be sporting that style anytime soon. I just don't have the hang time that I want. I probably won't have that for another year. Shrinkage is awful! I am constantly fighting the urge to just relax it so I won't have to deal with the tangles.

Is your hair natural? How do you deal with the shrinkage?
Do you just accept it?


  1. I've been natural for about 3 years now & have discovered that there is Nothing you can do about shrinkage! Twists or braids on dry hair give a bit more length than on wet hair or using pins to weigh down the twists until dry help too, temporarily. But once the humidity hits, they will shrink eventually
