Yes and no. Since you added growth,it should appear longer. But since curly hair is not stretched like straight processed hair, your hair will appear shorter than if all of it was relaxed.

example: you have stretched your relaxer for 4 months and decide to get it relaxed You are surprised to find that it is now pass your coller bone when before it was an inch above it. This is because one wave in the hair is usually doubled in length when stretched. Hope this helps! Smile

I can see that the more our hair grows it's very easy to shrink. Deep condition and keep up the good work.

What exactly is shrink? Your hair draws up or something.

To me it's like washing it and letting it air dry, without even combing it out. It will dry shorter than if I set it in rollers or wrap it.

i was thinking the same thing actually about the hair absorbing too much of a product to draw the hair up.i even thought shrinkage was happening each time id visit this old hair stylist,she was cutting my hair everytime i gained any length.

Shrinkage is not a bad thing when you're talking about new growth. When new hair grows, it is in your natural state. which could be wavy, or curly. When that happens, your hair seems shorter than it is. If you stretch the new hair, you will see your length.

Do not be afraid of the shrink, it can be your friend. Very Happy

Twist or braid the hair in sections when it is wet This is the most common technique for reducing shrinkage. The braids or twists are undone once completely dry imparting a beautiful texture on the hair or leaving it relatively ‘stretched’ out and ready for the next step of the styling process.Overly curly hair may appear to be quite short due to this erratic growing and re-curling pattern.

twisting and braiding is too much tension and manipulation for my hair unfortunately.i used to be able to do that but my hair is kinda fragile now.thanks for the suggestions.
