I give up.
Fairy knots — which are tiny single strand knots — are supposed to be a part of my life. I am convinced I have tried all types of things to get rid of these buggers and even after I trimmed a good chunk of my hair, they are still there, dammit!
Right now, I have a pretty strong regimen and I’ve been wearing protective styles, for the most part, since November. So why am I still finding fairy knots?
I know that I don’t have the patience to do the search and destroy method: finding the knots and clipping them one by one. It’s the burden we coily, kinky and nappy chicks must face. I don’t know what else to say but: I’m not trimming my hair because obviously trimming doesn’t help them situation, it only makes me another inch away from my goal — fully shoulder length by fall and being well on my way to armpit length by spring 2011.
Have any of you found the secret to preventing fairy knots? If so, can you please share? I’m desperate here!
