Bantu-Knot Out on Natural Hair- Complete FAIL

Hey Y'all! Long time. Hope all is well on your end.

So, there is a reason why I stick to my trusted chunky braid-outs. They always come out the same and I don't have to worry about a bad hair day when doing them.
Nevertheless, I still tried something different. My hair has been boring me lately, so I figured trying a different style would get me out of the funk. I have never done a bantu-knot out on my natural hair, mainly because the shrinkage isn't appealing to me, but decided to give it a go.


I started on stretched hair since I took out the braids I had in all week.
I spritzed each section with my AVJ mix, finger detangling then two strand twisted my hair. I then made a bantu-knot out of each twist, forming the knot in the same direction I twisted my hair.






I let them sit overnight then took them out in the morning

 
I then separated each twist, without adding any product.  I probably should have used oil.
 
I was left with this mess.
 

Excuse the face and eyes o_O. This is when I just woke up
 
I decided to keep on fluffing, but that resulted in much frizz and it just looked a hot mess


So, I threw it in a puff. Can't go wrong with a puff
 
 It's a different look than my normal puff, but not worth all the work.
 
I will try different ways to set my hair, such as a twist n curl, braid n curl, perm rods and so forth. Just not any time soon...
 

 
 
Have a great weekend!!!

  1. Maybe next time you shouldn't two strand twist it 1st, I think the result is different when you don't.
