5 Ways To Reduce Single Strand Knots

Single Strand Knots

My days of losing sleep over ‘single strand knots’ are over! I discovered single strand knots just a few months after my transitioner chop in November 2013, and got really down in the dumps about them, so much so that I wanted to do another ‘chop’. That was until I had a talk with some other naturals who swore that SSK’s were normal and that I really shouldn’t beat myself up about them. Almost a year later I can tell you these bad boys are here to stay and I no longer pay them too much attention. As long as I know I’m giving my hair all of the TLC that I can with the above steps I’m all smiles and happy.

Do you have any other tips or tricks for keeping SSK’s at bay?

Giveaway : Hair-ology Conference Tickets [closed]

I love educational hair events, don’t get me wrong the hair fairs and shows are amazing but I must admit I can be socially awkward/shy and small intimate events like this are right up my street!
