Detangle the hair- It's so important to apply a conditioner to the hair. I section the hair into 4 to 6 sections and start with the back. I like to apply the leave in to the hair and finger comb. I go through each section checking for knots.
Keep hair stretched- This is great for minimizing single strand knots, so twisting and protective styles should be your staple. A Shrunken head of hair is a breeding ground for single strand knots.
Don't sleep with loose hair - Okay, I am guilty of sleeping with loose hair, but sometimes I don't have the time to twist hair. When it's time to detangle, I definitely pay for it with pesky knots. :(
Hands off- We all love to touch our hair, but this will do more damage. Single strand knots are in the making when twirling the hair.
