Shrinkage...stop complaining ... for real.
It's just the evidence of a well kept head of hair. All that shrinkage that you are constantly fighting against is actually GOOD. It shows that your hair is well moisturized and is retaining elasticity. It means that your hair is happy with your regimen. Sure, we sometimes really want to show off our length and do different styles that require that length to be shown off through stretching and such, but we really should leave it alone most of the time.
Viva La Shrinkage!
