Bantu Knot Out on Semi Straight Hair

One hairstyle that I’ve struggled with has been the Bantu Knot Out. It seems fairly simple however it takes pure strategy to achieve the perfect results.

Once you learn the strategy the next obstacle is figuring out how in the world do you sleep with Bantu Knots in your head? Do you part your hair or, do you simply just grab hair and twist them into knots?

This time I gave myself a good blowout and a thorough combing and I flat ironed my hair. Not only was my hair completely detangled but I also used my Moisturizing Hair Butter for that extra shine and moisture.

My hair was so fluffy and light!

I opted not to part my hair but instead I grabbed each small section, finger coiled it and then placed it into a Bantu Knot and secured it with a bobby pin.

Because I wanted to wear a topknot style so, I section my hair at the top and in the back prior to Bantu Knotting it. I must say that I really love my results!

The only thing that I did not like is that because my hair was previously flat ironed, my hair did not hold its texture very long.

Maybe next time I’ll try on semi dry hair?
