Hey Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
I redid my twists on Saturday and wanted to try something different.
|Twists at week 6|
This is what my hair looked like after taking them out. I followed the same removal process I have done in the past(check out my braids label for more info or feel free to ask).

I know you all have either heard of or experienced them throughout this hair journey.
Those were one of my biggest fears about being fully natural, but to my pleasant surprise, I have not seen/felt/found not one single strand knot in my hair.
I believe it has a lot to do with my hair care practices and because of my thick/coarse strands. But mostly because of my hair care practices which I will highlight in this post.
So, what is a SSK? It’s basically what the above picture illustrates. When a strand of hair tangles within itself forming a knot in the hair. Us kinky, curly, coily girls are very prone to them. There are some ways you can avoid them, but for some, they can be inevitable. I do not believe SSK’s can make or break your hair’s health and length goals. But having a BUNCH of them can cause some issues.
Here are some tips to minimize them.
