Since I went natural, dealing with single strand knots (SSKs) has been a challenge. I’m learning how to deal with them each day. For example, I notice if I style my hair in twists there are fewer knots. Over on YouTube, Laila of Fusion of Cultures started her #SayNoToGariEnds movement 🙂 by sharing her tips to minimize SSKs. In the video, she explains what SSKs are, states the reasons why we get SSKs, and ways to reduce them.
Laila’s Tips for SSKs
- Know Your Hair
- Trim Your Ends
- Keep Your Ends Hydrated
- Keep Your Ends Stretched
- Protective Styling (but understand which ones work for your hair)
Do you use any of these tips to handle your single strand knots?
