|Janiece's Big Chop Story|
My hair straightened may be shoulder length, but If I wash my hair and let it air dry with no product, I'm basically a curly ear length... I can't wait for the day when I can really wash and go and have at least neck/shoulder length curls.
So approximately how long will you be in the TWA stage?
It all depends on your amount of shrinkage, curl pattern and hair style. These estimations are primarily for wash & gos, or unstretched styles-
- If your hair is tightly curled/waved and shrinks up anywhere between 50% - 90% expect to be in the TWA stage anywhere from 2 - 4 years.
- If your hair has medium curls/waves and shrinks up anywhere between 40% - 80% you can expect to be in the TWA stage for about a year or two.
- If your hair has loose waves or curls and your shrinkage is about 20% - 60% you can expect to be in the TWA stage for about a year and a half.
