I've had natural hair for over 10 years now. I think I've shared my natural hair story here before. I went natural thinking I wouldn't have to put in any work to take care of my hair, and that it woudl magically grow. It didn't and I had to learn how to take good care of my hair properly. Unfortunately, sometimes I'm lazy with my routine and end up not dutifully keeping my hair adequately moisturized and stretched to avoid tangles. In those times, dealing with my hair and the shrinkage that occurs can be painful and even stressful.
I decided though, that sometimes, having shrinkage isn't the worst thing in the world. In fact, it might be time for some of us to embrace shrinkage every now and then. And that's precisely what I did. All I needed to do was pretend I was around the TWA stage again, and voila! I came up with these styles below.
Unfortunately, I didn't do a step-by-step process for them, but I think they're pretty easy to figure out. If you want to see some step-by-step picture tutorials on some of my hair styles going forward, let me know and I'll put it in my calendar :)
