I'm on the verge of a major set back due to SSKs if I continue my regimen as is. I've come up with a plan to help combat these knotty ends. I planned to finger comb 80%-100% of the time and keep my ends moist and oily daily, but I started thinking about the tension method as a way to prevent SSKs all together. I want to M&S then allow my hair to air dry 75% of the way, and follow that with low/med heat tension blow out bi weekly (I would say monthly but I can not go that long with out pooing and DCing). The reason why I am running this by yall is because I am nervous that the frequent use of heat (even though its not alot of heat) will hinder my length retention in the long run. Are there any natural heads using a regimen similar to this gaining length and healthy strands? Is the heat worth having SSK free hair?
