Hola! Ok so I have been fighting with my hair a lot lately **only to lose of course** because I am getting crazy amounts of Fairy Knots. Some naturals may refer to them as Single Strand Knots (SSKS) but I say they are the enemy! I rarely experienced these pesky little things when I had shorter hair. Yet with growth knots make a grand appearance especially since my hair is just about at BSL when stretched.
Although I do my best to maintain and care for my hair, I cannot control these. I am experiencing tremendous growth but with that the tangles and knots are coming on strong too. Well, I don’t like losing so I am prepared to put up a fight. My plan is to:
-Seek a professional natural hair stylist that will give me a proper TRIM, not a cut.
-Continue to wash my hair in sections, I will be increasing that to 4 instead of just 2.
-Experiment with more protective and stretched hairstyles to prevent tangles.
-Use more creams/butters vs gels especially since it is getting colder; most gels has glycerin in it anyway and that is something I don’t need in the winter.
So I need help, is there anything I should add on my To-Do list? How do you combat fairy knots? Do tell…
