Single Knots and Double Knots
You may have heard about single knots and double knots, but do you know the difference between single knots and double knots? We are going to discuss it here today.
Advantage of Single Knots
Single knots are common because they're hard to be noticed. The strands of hair are knotted and tied into the hair system usually around the hairline. Single knots are invisible and give a more natural appearance. With single knots, the hair can be very flat.
Disadvantage of Single Knots
Single knots look natural, but more easily loosen than double knots. As a result, single knot hair systems are less durable than double knot hair systems. Therefore they are more prone to shedding. Single knots are simply more fragile than double knots.
Advantage of Double Knots
Double knots are more durable than single knots. They work well with heavy hair density. In double knot hair systems, two or three strands of hair are attached to the double knots. They are much more durable and there's less shedding in comparison to single knot hair system.
Disadvantage of Double Knots
Double knots are less natural looking as they're larger and more visible. If your hair system is knotted with double knots, just try to keep people from looking at it too closely.
Based on their pros and cons, we usually use single knots at the front hairline, so the hairline will look natural. And use double knots in other areas for stronger hair and less shedding.
