Ok, so I had to do it! I had to! (Hands up in the air lol) I had to do a Search and Destroy on my Single Strand Knots aka SSK's! My ends were just too tangled when I was separating a recent twistout and that was the last straw lol. So, I decided to take an hour and a half out the other night and do a "detailed" detangle session and snip off as many SSK's as possible. I decided to detangle my hair with Tresemme Naturals Conditioner (avocado and aloe vera) on dry hair. I didn't know exactly how things would go but I just separated my fro in very small sections, added the Tresemme and detangled. (I usually dampen my hair first but I was feeling daring lol.) Surprisingly, the conditioner actually gave my hair lots of slip even though I didn't use any water. (I now have another reason to love Tresemme! lol) I lost barely any shed hairs because I was mainly focusing midway to the ends of my hair. After I detangled each section I twisted my hair and hoped I would have a decent twistout the next day. I have never used Tresemme on dry hair before so I didn't know what to expect!
I was VERY surprised at this twistout! My hair isn't freshly cowash or anything but it looks like it is :D The conditioner didn't cause any real shrinkage or anything! My hair has a light/ soft hold...I love it. I think I can get several days wear on this dry twistout... but we'll see :)
Since it's inevitable that I'm going to get SSK's no matter what, I think I'm going to Search and Destroy every couple months or so unless I'm feeling too many of them in my hair. My ends feel soo much better now and the dry twistout came out pretty good! But you know what? On Day 2 when fluffing my hair after showering...I felt a few more SSK's! UGH lol The never ending battle! I'm not going to stress about them though lol. Have a blessed day!
