Is natural hair blogger IgboCurls on to something?
She recently posted three side-by-side photos of her hair over the course of two and a half years, but instead of highlighting the length she referenced the volume.
“I love #lengthchecks but I’m obsessed with #volume #naturalhair #progress #healthyhair #naturalvolume #igbocurls”
We are loving this and it makes so much sense. Although length can be an indicator of hair progress, volume might be more accurate for many hair types since curls and coils grow out instead of straight down. And if you consider how shrinkage obscures the length of natural hair while contributing to fullness, it makes even more sense.
What are your thoughts ladies? Do you think volume checks make more sense than length checks? Why or why not?
