Soooo, I have done my first bantu knot out…and I must say, I love it! For those who do not know what bantu knots are…here’s a visual:
How I Do Mine:
- I drain the drippies from my hair and placed a plastic cap on my head (no need for towel drying, if you must pat dry, use a t-shirt to dry the hair in order to keep down the count of the frizzies).
- Take a section of hair out of cap (maybe about 1in or so, I part with my finger b/c hair is already detangled from co-wash)
- Oil scalp lightly with castor oil (this isn’t necessary, but I do it for the bhp castor oil challenge)
- Apply Aloe Vera Gel to hair generously and seal with EVOO and/or EVCO
- Twist the section of hair (not two strand twists, but one twist) and roll twist around in circles on top of each other into the “knot”
- Tuck the last part under
- Continue on the rest of the hair taking sections out of the cap until the whole head is done.
- Let air dry overnight (or for some hours throughout the day), sit under a hooded dryer, or use a heated bonnet/cap
- Take down and Voila the bantu knot out/my curly fro:
That’s my way of doing it, but hey techniques vary! Check the Tube and other references to find what may work best for you! These are safe for all hair types. Bantu knot outs are ideal for the transitioner and natural heads, but again anyone who chooses may wear them! I just love them!
Ok Dolls, Until Next Time (which will be very soon b/c I have my henna mix sitting overnight now for color release – YAY!) Happy Healthy Hair Growing!!!Show
