Default Knots!!!Plz help

So I had my hair in 2 strand twist for about a week. I'm rockin a twist put now but I keep noticing tiny knots on single strands of my hair. Is there any way I can avoid getting these in the future?

Those are called single strand or fairy knots. There's really no way to avoid them 100% if you have tightly curled/coiled hair, it just comes with the territory. You can cut down on them by keeping your hair moisturized, detangled regularly, and trims (I get my hair trimmed 1x a year). Protective styles like two strand twists are also a good way to cut down on them. They keep the hair tangle free until you take it down. HTH

I've also noticed that sealing my ends helps cut down on the single strand knots that I get.
