Bantu Knot Out on Dry Hair--First Attempt

I was watching some YouTube videos the other day and saw this one and fell in loveeeee with her hair and this style! I've tried Bantu Knots before, a few times when I was transitioning and once or twice on wet hair.

"Bantu Knot Out Tutorial" @mjcurlsandjays

I was so excited that I couldn't wait to get home and try it lol

Lets Get Started: I started out with a week old twist out:

I look crazy, I know lol
I sectioned my hair up and began the Bantu Knot process. I spritzed my hair with water to help seal the moisture from the Curl & Style milk. I followed the steps that were shown in the previous video and used Shea Moisture Curl & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk to apply to my hair before twisting.
Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk --Walgreens/Target etc. $10
I ended up with about 14 or so Bantu Knots that I pinned the ends using a bobby pin.
I put a satin bonnet on it and went to sleep!

The Next Morning:
I unraveled each Bantu Knot, separated it out, fluffed it up a little and here's the end result! I wanted it to have a little more length and I don't think I did the ends correctly because there was no curl to them. I ended up pinning one of the sides up to give it a cuter look.
Overall I was pleased! I'll have to tweak the way I knot my hair next time for a better result!

  1. Hey Paris!
    I tried this method last weekend and received many compliments. Although I didn't use the same products, I loved the end result. I made smaller knots and my curls came out small and looked natural. Thanks for the tip.

    1. You're welcome! I haven't tried this in a while but I'll have to give smaller knots a try next time, I'm sure the curl definition is pretty!
