Found in Transition: Cipriana Quann on The Advantages of Short and Long Hair
Short Hair Means Easier Detangling
Longer lengths with curly hair causes the strands to become much more susceptible to tangling
Longer lengths with curly hair causes the strands to become much more susceptible to tangling and single strand knots. Especially since the longer your hair the older the strands are due to natural wear, which can cause breakage, as well as the bulk end of the strands to become finer than the density closer to the root area which is commonly known as ‘feathering’. Your strands are stronger in numbers so as the ends of your hair feather naturally with length, this is the reason why tangling, single strand knots and split ends happen more frequently in this area.
