    pisinoe, are you positive those knotted hairs are always all attached to your head? Is it possible you might be experiencing some increased shedding? When I was having my heavy shed, I'd experience terrible knots, especially in the shower after shampooing my hair (and thus loosening a lot of strands).

    I learnt from some curly hair videos that after you apply a conditioner, it's easier to spread it by adding more water so you end up using less product for the same effect. I go for the seaweed consistency and very squishy sound by adding water, and only if it doesn't feel perfectly slippery and coated, adding more conditioner as needed. :)

    I was about to ask the same; from the photo and your description, it looks a bit like tangled shed hair.

    Girls with straight hair: Do you find that your hair benefits from brushes? I only have regular combs and was wondering if brushes would be worth it, to "distribute the oils from the scalp".

    When I had bangs, I just did a quick wash in the sink or used dry shampoo if I couldn't do my usual daily wash.

    Random question: For those who oil their scalp, approximately how many ml of oil do you use each time?
    I'm trying to estimate how long a 100ml bottle would last

    Yes, using a bbb allows me to exfoliate my scalp and distribute sebum a bit down the length (only about 6-8” realistically) and stretch my wash day to every week vs. every 4-5 days.
    HL now, current goal is Classic
    Weekly wash alternating SLES with sulfate-free, bbb enthusiast, sealing all the moisture in with *gasp!* baby oil! No trimming 2021 (first half)

    My 4oz bottles (118ml) of oils last me between 2-3 months if I'm doing oil treatments every 2 weeks. I use about 2tbs each use

    I have a meta-question.
    How do I tell whether a question deserves its own thread or not?
    (I know that sounds silly, but I swear I'm not trolling )
    Midback ~ Waist ~ Hip ~ Buttcrack ~ Tailbone! ~ Classic ~ Fingertip? ~ Knee??
    Now happily maintaining tailbone length. I'm not done growing though... Just waiting for my ends to thicken

    Interesting! I might get one sometime. I've been hesitating on buying a BBB for years as I've seen so many conflicting comments. Guess I'll never know until I try.
