One-strand knots??

Anyone have this problem? I have fine hair and also my mom. She have the same problem but she told me that it was because of the fine hair.

I don't want to cut my hair because i am in the process of growing.

And still if i cut my hair the knots will appear again, because last year i cut my hair, and the one-strand knots appear again.. :-?

    Those are a curly hair problem in general. The problem is that the individual strands curl around themselves, to form the knot. It's just one of those things that comes with the territory. As for not wanting to cut your hair, I understand. But in my experience these knots can lead to breakage and split ends, which would be counterproductive to your length retaining efforts.

    Your best option may be to do a search and destroy once a week or however often you feel it's necessary. Find them and cut just above the knot to get them out. It's time consuming and may require traveling with well stored shears, but worth it. HTH
    I feel like a 3c/4a most days... More specifically an OS, dominant S, with spongy medium thickness

    Oh, I see... Well i haven't experienced the split ends yet... Is just that i don't like the knots.. But well, a curly hair problem then!!
    I would like to know how do the girls with long curly hair. Because i want my hair to gain lenght, but i feel that with these knots will be impossible. :sad3:

    Thanks for answer! :)

    If you search your head often for single strand knots and cut them just above the knot, you'll be fine. You're cutting a single strand, not a curly clump. With 100,000 strands on your head, you'll barely notice chopping several every once in awhile :)
