Ok, I just really don't get it.

Why is it that if I want silky straight or body wave hair, I can buy lengths anywhere from 10-36 inches? But when I want kinky curly hair, the longest look I can rock is 20 inches...Yes I can PAY a 30 inch PRICE, but it will only appear to be 20 inches. I'm natural so I understand shrinkage but I just refuse to believe that the shrinkage struggle has to be 10 inches. I believe that these vendors can create 26 inch kinky curly hair that is true to length. But the real question is why don't they? I really believe they don't feel women with kinky curly hair should have hair down their backs, which is bs. Period. And I'm over it.

Ok, rant over ladies. Lol sorry. But what do y'all think?

I think a 10-inch shrinkage struggle is real. My hair when straightened is to my navel. I usually wear it natural though and it never even touches my shoulders, even in a twist out.

Honestly, the process to create a curl is probably labour-intensive. To do it on some 36" hair, I would not want to see the price tag on that. If you want a true 36" curly, you're probably looking at some hair that is 46-50 inches long to achieve that. Have you tried just purchasing a straight hair in the length you want and curling and boiling that yourself?

I just have to respectfully disagree with you Sahar. I believe it can be done. If I can boil the hair at home, why can't someone I'm paying hundreds of dollars boil it?

hahahahahahaaaa...you are soo right.
But maybe if you pay for 30" and threaten them that you will return it if the length does not reach the straight length you will return it maybe they will make sure you have your length.

I would assume cause the work that goes into making kinky curly hair is a lot harder than the other textures you mentioned, also their may just not be a demand for those lengths. They can probably create it but I don't know if it will be worth it from a business standpoint. I doubt the care enough to think women with kinky hair should have 26 inch hair. I'd assume just very expensive to make it true to length, which they may worry will drive away their customers. That's usually why you have to do a custom order for those types of lengths.

Didn't say it couldn't be done! Of course it can. But to get  36" curly, the hair has to be longer than that when it's straight, especially when you think about how long hair pulls and makes the curl seem a little looser the longer it is. Plus, the rods to curl up some 46" hair has to be insane. LOL

Are you asking for magic?
Kinky means the hair is curled up, curled up means loss of length. If you want 36 inch TIGHT curls the starting length will need to be much longer maybe even double. 60 inch hair is not easy to find.
