Bantu Knot-Out (On Dry Hair)!

Sunday, June 09, 2013



Summer is around the corner and for me that means more wash & gos and easy-going set styles! One of my favorite go-to set styles from my transitioning days (that I re-visited last year) is the bantu knot-out! I prefer to do my bantu knot-outs on dry hair (see why in this post). Many times I do fewer bantu knots in larger sections for a more wavy look. But if I want a curlier more defined bantu knot-out, I will do more bantu knots in smaller sections like I do in the video :) I use water and product to help set this style, but I only layer on a very tiny bit of water/product because I don't want my bantu knots to be too wet. If they are, they take forever to dry completely - and in those instances I almost always take them down before they are 100% dry - which means frizz central! That said - with this style, a little bit of frizz in the right places doesn't really bother me as long as there is some consistent curl/wave definition :)

PRODUCTS USED : 
Cleansed scalp with Kinky Curly Come Clean
Then followed with a quick wash with Shea Moisture Cleansing Conditioner  
Sealed with: Sweet Almond Oil  
Moisturized with: Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk 
To set the style: Blue Eco Styler gel 
To separate the bantu knot-out I coated my hands with sweet almond oil.

    1. You should! I did bantu knots all the time while transitioning, and then stopped doing them when I big chopped and didn't revisit them again until 2 years later! lol :)

    1. Don't give up chica! What products did you use? Did you do it on wet or dry hair? How long did you allow them to set? How big or small were the bantu knots? All these factors can make or break the results!! :)
