What is it?:
Single Strand Knots are little knots at the end of your hair strand. This is most commonly noticed within the natural hair community. They are on top of my list of being the biggest headache for me since being natural. Why are they referred to as Fairy Knots? Well, because they are so small that only a fairy could have tied them. Totally makes sense.
Why are they such a pain?
These little suckers are so small that it is hard to get them untangled which can be quite frustrating, if you don’t have a ton of patience. I don't have that kind of time and patience is not a virtue with me. I tend to whip out some scissors (ugh, I admit sometimes they aren't hair scissors...which I do not advise) and chop them bad boys off.
