    Currently BSL in the back when stretched, and a couple inches shy of BSL in the front. Very basic 3a. No cones. No heat styling.

    Just a warning, if you have very long hair, these knots can cause bad tangles. I believe Torrinpaige had to cut several inches after trying these.

    I want to try this so badly but this is my concern! My hair tangles SO easily. Wonder if I can just get away with doing a handful of bigger knots...

    You totally can, I have done this several time. I make a "mohawk" of knots that I sleep in. My hair also tangles easily, and as long as I am careful when loosening them up, it's no problem at all. My biggest tip is, when loosening up the ends, to hold on to the hair a bit higher up, and twist the end the opposite way of the original twist, slowly and carefully. And then you can work on the rest of the length.

    Now I want to try it, as I'm currently trying heatless curling methods for my wedding hairdo. The "mohawk" sounds like a really good idea, and the buns themselves are pretty similar to a type of bun that I often do, and can undo easily.
