So I had my hair in 2 strand twist for about a week. I'm rockin a twist put now but I keep noticing tiny knots on single strands of my hair. Is there any way I can avoid getting these in the future?

    Those are called single strand or fairy knots. There's really no way to avoid them 100% if you have tightly curled/coiled hair, it just comes with the territory. You can cut down on them by keeping your hair moisturized, detangled regularly, and trims (I get my hair trimmed 1x a year). Protective styles like two strand twists are also a good way to cut down on them. They keep the hair tangle free until you take it down. HTH

    My Arsenal:
    Shampoo: Waiting on SM African Black soap shampoo to makes its way to me...
    Conditioner(s): CJ Beauticurls Argan and Olive Oil, Curl Junkie Smoothing Lotion
    Treatments: CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Deep Fix, CJ Repair Me!
    Oil: Apricot Kernel Oil
    Stylers: CD Loc Butter for twists, CJAF, CJCQ (haven't figured out how to work this though...)

    I've also noticed that sealing my ends helps cut down on the single strand knots that I get.
