Hello lovely Maicurlies!
I hope all is well 🙂
Lets get down to business shall we…and that business is my Twisted Bantu Knot-out.
Let me start off by saying I love the curl results I get from this style. I think they are really “girly” and fun… in my opinion. I did not manage to record how I actually put in the Bantu Knots because I decided to do them late at night but I did demonstrate on one piece before taking down my hair (see video below). I can do a proper demonstration of how I install my twisted Bantu Knots in a separate video & write up (if someone needs to see it) although my method is no different to the other lovely ladies on YouTube.
These particular Bantu Knots were not two strand twist, instead I just twisted single sections of my hair around like you would a rope and then put them into Bantu Knots. Because they were not put into two strand twists I separated each curl a little more than I would when they are in twists. With the two strand Bantu Knots, I already have 2 separate sections and then separate each half of the twist one or two times.
I have a few photos of what my Two Strand Bantu Knot-Outs look like here for you to compare to the images below.
- Distilled water (spray bottle)
- DIY Creamy Leave-In Conditioner
- DIY Whipped Cocoa, Shea & Mango Butter
- Sealing Oil (to take down the Bantu Knots)
- Ribbon – optional (to accessorize the style)
I did not neatly part my hair nor did I use rat-tail comb I just sectioned 5 parts; 2 on the left, 2 on the right and one in the middle of my head and then randomly took small/medium sections of hair and twirl my hair into a Bantu Knot.
I have explained how I achieve this style along with images and text below.
How I install the Bantu Knots
I worked on dry hair that was slightly stretched and finger detangled. I first lightly mist my hair with water, apply my leave-in conditioner and set/seal with my whipped butter.
