Hi ladies. I have seen so many ladies with completely knotted hair or dead ends and I had the same issue until I started properly treating my hair, especially after braids/cornrows and weaves. After doing this for about 6 months, I realized that my curl pattern even changed showing that my hair was healthier than ever before. I now think that after moisturizing, detangling and consistent treatments are the most important for your natural hair. I hope this helps. Lots of love. ❤️
