How do you get the knots out of your hair without frizzing it?
My hair is usually kept in twists so that it doesn't get tangles and keeps the knots to a minimum. I moisturize about 3-4 days a week during the low humidity/dew points and dry seasons, and once to twice a week when it's humid. I do sleep with a satin cap because my house and other buildings can get very dry in the rooms due to the air conditioner or central heating.

To get the knots out without frizzing, I just wait until the next shampoo/cowash. For my hair, the more I try to "de-knot", the tighter the knot becomes. Then I have to cut it out, which defeats the purpose of maintaining length. Sometimes I can get the knots out using a detangler, and then place a styler on that spot. That way my hair won't frizz, but that happens as often as a "blue moon". LOL!

Thanks for asking. Hope this helps!
