    Try banding or even braiding to stretch your hair. If you band make sure not to use rubber bands

    Banding. If your shrinkage is real powerful, you may have to do quite small sections with as many bands as you can fit on the length. If I want a good stretch, I will do about 10 sections.
    My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse. :happy6:
