A Bantu Knot-Out Tutorial for Curlies with Fine Hair

Evelyn writes:

I just made this tutorial for my favorite hairstyle -- the bantu knot out. I thought it'd be helpful for those like me who don't have mounds of hair, lol. Those of us who need careful placement and vigorous fluffing to give our hair volume. Hope this can help somebody!

Hi Nikki, thanks for posting Evelyn's video.

I have seen her videos on NaturallyCurly.com, and her hair has grown beautifully. She looks to be my hair twin, so I will have to take another look at her regimen!!

LOL at "careful placement and vigorous fluffing", I thought that was my dutty little secret!

I love her

I love this. Only women with thick density hair receive attention. Not everyone has that type of hair. I have fine strands and thin density. Nice to see her doing tutorials.

I've been curious about trying this technique. I wonder what the result would be with longer with a looser hair type (3a,3b)? Anyone with this type of hair try it?

VioletFem said...

@ Dallas Have you viewed any of SoYounique's videos? She has a longer looser curl pattern which make her bantu knots come out more like a corkscrew

Love Bantu Knots though my knot outs still aren't perfected :-/

I enjoyed Evelyn's tutorial, my fine hair looks just like hers. My question is Evelyn what is your hair type, everytime I look at the charts I come up with something from 3C or 4a or 4b? Your answer will finally help me know for sure! Thank you so much!

I do this style all of the time. To help hide the parts in my fine hair, I find that using an afro pick (is that what you still call it?) in my roots only, giving a very minimal and gentle lift does best. This is because my crown is curl resistant, and if I use my fingers in that area, any curl is gone.

hey Chopuddin! i have type 4 hair, but idk the letter... when my hair is wet, it's a zillion little springs all over my face and then when it dries...a zillion little springs sticking straight up/out LOL. but aside from the curl pattern, my hair is afro textured as in it's not smooth per se. maybe this would help? http://youtu.be/ZEHyCgiUCLY

Awesome...my hair is very similar and camouflaging parts has ALWAYS been a challenge. A little frizz is actually a good thing in these circumstances because not everybody wants or has the time to make lots of small twists or braids.

Brendita said...

Very nice! And I like the "production" :-).

That's right Evelyn...it's all about that placement and fluffing for us fine, lower density girls! We can be fly too!

Thank you so much for putting this video together and to CurlyNikki for posting it. I have the same type of hair and I'm so frustrated right now with it. It's hard coming to the realization that naturally I just won't have thick voluminous hair. :( It's good to see creative ways at making the type of hair that I have work for me.

Will be trying tonite, only have 3 inches of hair, transitioned for 4 months and did my BC February 28th 2012. Took me 4 hours just to twist, so this will probably take me 20 minutes, love it!!!!!!!

You looked fab!!!!
