No Need for a Curling Iron!

I was getting tired of my buns that I wear almost every day:


 So I decided to do a Bantu Knot out for today.

After the gym last night, I co-washed my hair, applied my leave-ins and let it air dry. When it was about 90% dry, I sectioned my hair off, moisturized and sealed with Shea-butter mixed with Coconut Oil then put in 6 Bantu Knots. I secure them with these small ponytail holders



This Morning, I un-did each knot:

Then I separated my hair a little:

Dang my hair looks short, let me make sure I still have some length..haha

All done, and ready to go to work.(YES, those are stained glass windows in the background. I live in an old church so I am constantly BLESSED!)

  1. I know this is an old post for you but this inspired me to try bantu knots for the first time last night. I followed your technique of letting my hair air dry before I started. Getting the knots up WAS quick and easy, but I don't think I let my hair dry enough because the front ones were still a little mushy this morning. I ended up pinning up the back leaving some of the curls out on top and in front. I like it and with a little more practice I think I'll be able to get the results I want. I really needed an easy go-to style besides a bun, and think this one will be it, so thanks for the tips!

  2. Hey Mrs. T, I'm sure the next time you try them out, you will be able to get the results you want. It takes a little practice, but you know exactly what went wrong. The style you went with sounds cute too!
    No problem and thanks for stopping by.
