Have you ever wanted to try Bantu Knots? Well I always did, but for some reason I noticed that I always saw better results on hair that was flat-ironed, blow dried or sat under a hair dryer for an unprecendented amount of time.
Well, I personally hate sitting under a dryer (I have no patience) and I'm not big on flat ironing or blow drying my hair. So I decided to do things in a way that made me feel comfortable with the style. Something that would for sure not result in the damage of my hair -which heat can sometimes cause if used too frequently. Continue below to see how I stretched my hair and the video demonstration of how I did my Bantu Knot Out!
What I decided to do was stretch my hair first. I stretched my hair by:
1. Co-washing and conditiong it.
2. Then I used the LOC method (I used Olive Oil as my oil and KC Knot Today as my cream/conditioner)
3. After that I did four large two-strand twists.
4. Once the two-strand twists dried I twisted the front of my hair back into a ponytail, two-strand twisted the rest of my hair into one big twist with a perm rod on the end and hid the perm rod by turning the twist into a bun.
And below you shall see the video on how I turned that stretched hair into The Perfect Spiral No Heat Bantu Knot Out!
