Spring time is the best weather to rock out Bantu knots where you can officially not worry too much about it being too hot or cold. Bantu Knot outs can be a look that you can rock alone or leave it in overnight for a spiral/wavy look. I wanted to make sure to tell you how to do a Bantu knot out on every hair length so nobody can be left out. See which one works best for you to give you the best results.
I know for me my 5 bantu knots top tips are:
1) Best results work best on damp hair or dry stretched hair that’s mist with some water
2) Making your parts in smaller sections for more spiral curls and waves
3) Watch out on how tight your twisting so your root is not too tight. Trust me on this one, I did it before it makes it uncomfortable and can lead to breakage.
4) Make sure it’s 100% dry before taking out your Bantu knot out
5) If your hair is not able to tie around itself on its own, you can always use boppy pins to hold the ends down or pin it at the base of the Bantu knot
Short Natural Hair
Traeh shows a great example of how to do a bantu knot out with short natural hair. You can use a cream or gel to hold this defined look. If you are using a gel use a gel that has a light hold so you’re able to carefully take down the twist and seperate as needed.
Melissa shows you how to get a cute spiral Bantu knot on dry and detangled stretched hair. She makes a point to add if you are wearing your Bantu knots out feel free to focus on the parts. If not, feel free to section off as you see fit. Your welcome to wear the style out as is if you want to take it down then unravel them counter clockwise before separating with coconut or olive oil on your fingertips. Next, separate and fluff the roots for the look that you want.
If you want to keep the Bantu knots in
I had to use Naptural86 to show how to wear wearable Bantu knots for your next protective style. Whitney uses black crotchet thread in size 10 and threaded each knot to secure the Bantu knot.
