Ladies with kinky-coily hair can attest that it seems like natural hair doesn’t grow. You wait, and you wait, only to give up hope that you will ever see new growth and longer curls. The basis to this myth is the extreme shrinkage that comes with kinky-coily curl patterns. The coils are so tightly wound that they show very minimal growth, despite the fact that your hair grows just as quickly as anyone else’s. Another culprit to this myth may be that natural hair is often more prone to breakage, as it tends to be dry and more brittle. The breakage, if not controlled, may give off the illusion that the hair is not growing at all.
