    I loathe ssk's, but I've noticed that if I tend to keep my hands out of my hair & keep my ends moisturized I don't get as many. Though when I don't cut them they do get tangled with other hair, ugh! Thanks for the article .

    Omg, this post came at the right time for me. My hair is just glancing CBL and I'm noticing SSKs everywhere. I'm just getting ready to give up wash n' goes and gonna put it away in a weave for a few months before I go mad and set myself back with all the snipping and snatching I've been doing lately.

    Yes! Finally a post about single-strand knots. They're the worst! As soon as I get my hair growing, the pop up soon after. Thanks for the article!

    I agree with @ Taylor….they are the death of me too. I also have found that no matter the styler or conditioner, my hair still gets SSKs. I try to keep my hair stretched by two strand twistouts. This helps to minimize them, but the still come no matter what. Yeah I hate them too, and if I am not near any scissors when I feel them, I snatch them off! Oh well, I'll deal! Thanks for the article!!

    I have to stretch my hair with braid outs and twists, even though my wash n' goes had good definition my hair suffered later with ssk's. Good tips I will try buninng to see if that works to calm them down.

    Great tips! Single strand knots will be the death of me…

    I think you meant to say that your signature style is the "twist-n-curl", not the "wash-n-go" in your article. Just wanted to let you know if you wanted to correct it :)

    Thanks for these tips. This humidity & wind are awful for SSKs. I do wash & gos regularly, but I'm going to do more twist outs to stretch my ends during the summer.
