My daughter has major shrinkage and I think it shrinks about 75% when completely dry in it's natural state. It is challenging and frustrating to manage at times. Most of the time, I stretch her hair after washing it to make it more manageable to work with.
There are several was to stretch the natural hair without heat. I share one of them in this video. This video was also narrated by my daughter, MadiMel since it is about her hair. Please support her, she wants to do her own videos with my help! Hope this video is helpful!
Here are the items we used in the video. You can get them at a local beauty supply store or Sally's. There are also online websites to purchase hair accessories.
The hair bands were purchased at a local beauty supply store.
