Single Strand Knots can be an absolute pain! They can lead to your hair splitting and turning into split ends. Be aware of them when they find their way making room on your hair strands.
What are single strand knots?
Literally as the name suggests they are knots of your own hair. Your hair gets tangled and causes a knot on the strands of your hair. This can happen anywhere on the one strand of hair, whether in the middle, roots or ends.
What do single strand knots look like?
How can you remove Single Strands Knots?
Single Strand Knots can be removed by using a "hair scissors", dusting where they are located on your hair. This is the only way you can remove them. Because its not so easy trying to untie knots of hair with all the pressure you would put on your hair strand it would break.
How to Prevent Single Strand Knots?
I wouldn't say you can prevent them entirely, because there will always be one that sneaks their way on your hair strands. You can definitely reduce single strand knots though, and that's where moisturizing products play an important role in your natural hair care regimen. Single Strand Knots find their way on to your hair strands because your hair gets super dry. Picture your hair strand being so dry, when they rub against each other their is no moisture to glide them easily to prevent tangles. This is where they are forced to get caught on each other and cause tangles and knots.
Products that can help Reduce Single Strand Knots
So I mentioned before moisture products are perfect in reducing single strand knots and that is so true. The more moisturized your hair is, the more water, oils and butters you introduce into your hair regimen, is the less single strand knots you will find in your hair. Start off by using a shampoo that is moisturizing, has no drying alcohols like our Green Tea & Calendula Herb Moisturizing Shampoo. The more strong and harsh your shampoo is, the weaker and dryer your hair becomes, especially when you use these shampoos too often. I cannot stress this enough how important it is to deep condition your natural hair. Giving your hair that creamy goodness that infuses strength and moisture into your hair strands is such a nice pamper move you could do for your hair. Our Honey Green Tea Deep Conditioners can help to reduce single strand knots because they were created to fix dry hair.
Now you cannot possibly go through an entire week without adding or sealing moisture on to your hair strands. If you did that I would need to call the natural hair police LOL just kidding. But lets be real here, the more moisturized your hair is, there is no way you can see as many single strand knots as you normally do. Try using the layering method of your products to keep your hair moisturized longer. This is done by starting with warm water sprayed on to your hair to open the cuticles, then using our Soften Your Tangles Leave-In Conditioner on small sections of hair, then using our Honey Green Tea Water Based Moisturizer in small sections as well then lastly using our Herbs infused 5 Oil Fusion Hair Growth Oil. Listen you are set for the entire week with this combo! LOL
