Shrinkage is a…

One of the amazing things about curly hair is something called “shrinkage”.  In my own words, shrinkage is the difference in length of hair at different times.  When my hair is wet, it looks much longer than when it has air dried.  At times this can be frustrating because I don’t like to flat iron my hair all that often, and I’m not really one to rollerset, so most of the time when my hair is dry it looks like it falls to my shoulders.  Case in point:

Even though shrinkage can be a bit of a pain, I am still overall glad to have such versatile hair, and  I wouldn’t trade that for anything =)

3 Week/2 Month MegaTek Update

Well, I’ve been using MT for about 3 weeks now.  I apply it to my scalp twice a day (morning and night) and I have noticed new growth coming in, but it’s a little too early right now to see a significant difference.  The difference I DID notice is that my hair is stronger, getting thicker, and feels softer.  I also notice that my new growth is softer and easier to comb through in addition to my hair looking shinier.  I’m contstantly surprised at how much of a difference there is in lenght from when my hair is dry and when it’s wet.  I’ll continue to use MT along with my Ayurveda.  Hopefully by the end of this month I will finally hit APL.

ETA October 31,  2008:  It’s been about two months now and megatek has really helped to thicken my hair, and there is growth, too, but since I’m not using heat for a while (because I tend to abuse it and have to chop off hair as a result), I don’t know exactly how much.  As an experiment, I relaxed my hair about 3 weeks ago, to see what I could see.  Two weeks post I felt new growth coming up.  I just bought some Ovation Cell Therapy (OCT) to see if the growth can be increased.  I have a few strands touching APL right now, but it’s not full APL yet.  I’m hoping by my birthday at the end of November I will be there.  I’ll take comparison pics then =) I want to be really suprised, and I hope that I am…fingers crossed!
