The beauty about our hair… So versatile. Can be curly, straight, wavy, kinky, braided, twists, coiled, afro style… Just love it.

I have major shrinkage too!

How I wish mine will be long once I remove my weave

Maybell Lena Killion

I LOVE my natural hair, it’s amazing! Shrinkage doesn’t bother me. It’s so fun when I finally decide to have it straightened and it shows up at almost bra strap length! It’s exciting, gives me a little something to keep working for. The versatility of natural hair just leaves others in awe. What a blessing? Wish I had known years and years ago.

Yes if only I knew I could walk out of the house with my own hair on my head years ago!

Wow beautiful! But shouldn’t she have blow dried the hair straight first?

Ashley Elam Attenborough Rothenberg

No you don’t have to blow dry it straight first. Good way to experience heat damage. Never had mine straighten before I used a hot comb either.

Antinea Nicole Ellis Johnson

Oh okay I haven’t straightened mines yet. I just have a small fro.

i love it cause you can have short and long hair at the same time

Latasha Edwards- Pascal

Me and my little girls hair is the same way….but we all have different textures. Mine is more loosely curled and the 3 of them all have various curl patterns. If I was to straighten there hair it would be ridiculously long. #love our curly tresses!


Uugh shrinkage at its best . Lmao I understand . I mostly protective style I wear cornrows but when I take my cornrows down its like neck length then I stretch it and it reaches my collarbone. I flat ironed it months before as well and it was collarbone length. #theshrinkageisreal
