Dealing with High Shrinkage Hair

Hi Doves!

PSA ANNOUNCEMENT GLAMLUSH HAIR IS NOW ON *FACEBOOK* click the link to access the page. Like rate subscribe :-D

I'm back with another educational post. Shrinkage is a very good sign that your shaft is healthy and undamaged. But as much as we love seeing our curls pop and squiggle, shrinkage  and particularly high shrinkage poses a hidden danger: breakage.

How do I know if I have high shrinkage hair? Well basically if your hair reduces to 40% of your stretched length or less you fall into the high shrinkage me.

                      And my hair shrinks to even less than was just getting started, lol.
The problem with high shrinkage is that the strands curl around each other, so much so that they  tangle and knot.  and breakage is high. Early in my journey, I often found myself detangling a section, moving on to another and then only to come back and re-detangle because the strands had curled up on each other again. Here are a few things i've learned that have helped me to handle my shrinkage in such a way that i minimise breakage and tangling.
