Relaxed hair shrinks too

I've always thought that just because I relaxed my hair I wouldn't have any shrinkage. It's definitely not as dramatic as natural hair's shrinkage but it's definitely there. I noticed it more once I started air drying instead of flat ironing.

Case in point. Check out my little shrinkage. And by the way, I am so dangerously close to BSL and I am loving it.
I am hoping to be BSL by the Summer and MBL by the end of the year. Here is to working hard on my hair to achieve some great results this year.

I am also loving the thickness of my hair right now. In that picture I was only 4 days post relaxer after a cowash and air dry.

  1. relaxed hair shrinks for sure. It's not bone straight. And if you've not relaxed in a while, your roots coil up and contribute even more to the shrinkage. I'm glad you're lowering your heat by air drying! Hi Five!
