(currently weaved up but natural underneath)

I always had my hair stretched. It was easier for me to maintain that way.

I have tight, coily hair. It's in the 4s.
When I wore it loose, I absolutely could not let it shrink. That was just asking for trouble.
I went ahead and started loc'ing since I was in twists 90 percent of the time--and I like the aesthetic of thicker locs. 
My hair is fine, but they're trying to come together.

NEVER.

The tangles will be so outrageous, oh my god! Even if I do a fro, it has to be stretched a little!

I love my kinks but they love themselves too much; my hair be playing Twister with itself if unstretched.

I have fine, thin hair (3c and 4a)

I did the unstretched thing this entire summer using MahoganyCurls' curly girl method. Had to refresh with co-wash (tressemme naturals) every 2 days or so or it would be soo matted.

Retained a lot of length this way though. No breakage at all which is strange. I also did mostly finger detangling in sections under running water.

I guess every day but I'm loc'd.  Some people say locs are stretched but if I blow dry, I get about 2 more inches.  So I don't know.

4a/b checking in:
I normally wear my hair in it's natural state but I think I can't do it anymore since I'm somewhere inbetween APL and BSB. With approx. 75% shrinkage, I'm starting a notice an insane amount of SSKs (thinking I need a trim now because searching and destroying is not working anymore) and I'm currently experimenting with ways of stretching my hair and bunning. So far, the only thing that has worked for sure is tension blow drying my hair.

When my hair is short, I love it unstretched. It looks very...sophisticated. When its shoulder length and longer I at least brush it with a denman and conditioner. I'm a 3c/4a, mostly 4a except for the top and front.

when I wear my hair out, it's mostly just as is in a banana clip or updo

I've flat ironed my natural hair only a handful of times, I've done roller sets, used to do braidouts but not anymore

I'm 4z
