Embrace Your Hair's Shrinkage Instead of Hating It!

Shrinkage is a real issue for many naturals. Some women don't mind it as much, but if you're frustrated because your shrunken-up 'do appears way shorter than your actual length -- and you're tired of natural-cynics wondering out loud why your hair isn't growing -- you probably do mind. You know your hair is growing, but not getting visual affirmation of your healthy hair habits can get even the most positive woman down.

While combating shrinkage with stretching efforts is common, you can also try and embrace your natural hair's tendency to hide its true length with these tips.
