How to: Bantu Knots

Hey y’all!

I’ll be attending a wedding this weekend and I have been fretting about how to style my hair. I decided that the look I’ll be doing is a bantu knot out. I always get so many compliments and questions about how to do it so I decided that this should be the post for the week.

Before we get started, let’s talk more about what bantu knots are. Bantu knots are created when “knots”  twist around upon themselves to form a unique style of knots. You can stop here and wear the knots out if you do not want to unravel. However, if you want to unravel the knots, that style forms the actual bantu knot out. The bantu knot out is when you unravel the knots and separate the twists to wear the hair out. It’s an easy style to get curly, stretched hair.

Products and Styling

You can do bantu knots on both wet or dry hair. I prefer dry hair because there’s less time spent on detangling. Usually, I do it on blown out hair, but for this tutorial, it will be on stretched dry hair.

You will also need styling creme to make your hair a bit more pliable.  I’m using the Curls Creme Brule Whipped Curl Cream. I love this product because it gives me the most amazing curl definition with twist outs. It also doesn’t hurt that it smells heavenly!

This style is easier to explain via video. Watch the tutorial, below, to get a better idea of how to replicate the style.
