AHHHHH! The SHRINKAGE!!

I know I'm supposed to be giving you all a real post at this point, but I just had to rant on my hair shrinkage! As many of you know, I cut my hair last year, and again this year. Well, due to protective styling and less idiotic handling by people (mainly myself), it's growing back just fine... However, the shrinkage KIILLLSSS me. Not softly either! Check it out. I was washing my hair when I took these. I had just taken down 2 of my lil' twists in the first pic.



*Sigh* I will be so glad when my curly hair gets this length, or at least close to it. I hate straightening.

So... I Wish I Knew My Hair Type

I am on a healthy, natural hair care journey (attempting to be on one anyway), and I can't figure out my hair type. I know  I know you need a full head pic to give me my hair type. However, this is a small section of my hair in a ponytail, do these curls look 3C to you? My shrinkage is something serious. Ugh.

Anyway, I'd like to develop a solid growth regimen but the wealth of information available is MORE than overwhelming. I sort of have one, but not really. *SIGH* Someone mail me a hooded dryer!


I feel like I'm a majority 4a/b, mixed with a small amount of 3c. I'm not sure. The tighter curl pattern is my current one I suppose. The other 2 were taken earlier this year, when there was still some BKT in my hair.
