Maybe it's natural. We've unleashed our curls to do as they please. And what they aim to do is. . . how did this one gal put it? Make love to themselves? That still makes me laugh because that's exactly how my hair behaves. Apparently now it's not enough to latch onto the neighboring strands, my hair's gone self service. Oh well.
And I don't know if it's a secret so much as a texture thing. I just looked into single strand knots after I noticed a ton on my mother (she has medium-fine hair) and I read somewhere they're more common in fine hair. I guess since fine hair is more spindly and flyaway it can knot up pretty quickly. Especially when you're higher density as most fine haired curlies are. And since coarse hair is sort of thick and unyielding it's less inclined to do so? Same for the split ends maybe. Even when I severely mistreated my hair with sulfates, heat tools, and hair dye I didn't get those. I'm guessing it's because the individual strands are so thick they're more resilient. Sometimes I think it would be nice to have some finer strands though. I could try every curly product on the market and not have to worry about the protein content. It's a tradeoff either way.
