21 Photos That Prove "The Shrinkage Is REAL!"

"The shrinkage is real!"

How many times have you heard that? Probably a lot.

Why? Because so many of us are self-conscious about our hair length and want to grow it longer so that everyone can clearly see it.

But it's time to embrace your curls and love the MAGIC that you have happening on top of your head.

One of the biggest reasons women with curly & kinky hair have a problem with shrinkage is because so many people outside of black culture or natural hair culture have NO IDEA that you are blessed with so much hair. They think that if your kinky/curl hair is sitting at 7 inches, you only have 7 inches of hair.

Well... NO.

That is how life is for women with straight hair, but many curly-haired naturals that have hair sitting at 7 inches in front of the naked eye could EASILY be flaunting 14-20+ inches of lusciousness.

So BlackHairOMG wants to make sure that more and more people realize this phenomenon on natural black hair.

We have pulled together this amazing PHOTO GALLERY of some of the DOPEST shrinkage comparison pics that you'll ever see.

Don't ever let yourself think that your hair isn't growing because the length is hidden in the curls and kinks, your hair grows like crazy when you treat it right.
