Shrink City. Shrink, Shrink City. Hiding up to 90% of the actual hair length in some cases, shrinkage proves itself to be the ultimate magician when it comes to natural hair. Even though shrinkage is a common occurrence amongst naturals, our jaws dropped when we saw these photos.
LadyKandDice has since cut her hair, but this shrinkage picture she posted back in October had people’s jaws dropping.
Natural hair blogger AHairStory
said that her shrinkage has made her “a fan of blowdrying”.

Last but not least, we just had to include our writer, Chinwe’s infamous shrinkage photo.
These photos just go to show, “Shrinkage does not discriminate!” No matter how long your hair gets, one wash can have you rocking a TWA. Remember, shrinkage is not a bad thing
! It’s a unique aspect of our versatile hair :) Peace, Love and Detangling!
