You should probably get a trim because you say you have split ends and that will help with the knots.... You could also do the search and destroy method and cut out all of your knots (if they are single strand knots but not like hole clumps of hair knots) and split ends

I want something that will smooth out my hair; loosening the texture is a bonus too... but I don't want it forever.
type 3a/b, baby fine to medium, normal to high porosity except the canopy which is high.
recently chopped off about 4" - HOW LIBERATING!!! Learning to love my hair again instead of hating it for being a knotty mess.
