Single strand knots!!!

kekabug08kekabug08 Posts: 4Registered Users
Hey naturals I have been natural for about 2 1/2 years now and I have so many single strand knots that that my hair is starting to break and the end of my hair is getting thin. I was wondering if anybody had any tips to prevent single strand knots????

    Keep your ends moisturized, sealed and trimmed to minimize split ends. Keep your hair stretched. Those things work for me.

    texture - medium/fine, porosity - low/normal, elasticity - normal
    co-wash - NaturelleGrow Coconut Water or Marshmallow Root, Slippery Elm Bark & Blue Malva Cleansing Conditioners
    LI - KCKT mixed w/ SM C & H Curl & Style Milk
    DC - NG Mango & Coconut H2O or Chamomile/Brdck Root
    Gel - SM souffle (winter), KCCC (summer) or CR Naturals Aloe Whipped Butter Gel (year round)
    Sealers - Virgin Coconut Oil, Avocado butter, Aloe butter
    Ayurvedic treatments - Jamila Henna, Sukesh, Aloe Vera Powder, Hibiscus Powder

    I couldnt quite make out the last part of your msg but product is important. I find that ssk are persistent when i have my hair in loose nature state, wither its puff or wash n go (highly uncommon) keeping it stretch is important to keep down frizz use shea butter or thick butter on your twists/braid that way when u take them down the definition is solid. Also seal those ends after moisture. Start off but getting a trim then go from there. HTH
