I love your hair Alicia!!! Bantu knot-outs are my go to transitioning style and yours look so shiny and bouncy indeed!!! Thank you for sharing! x
Wow, really nice!! What product did you use?
I've tried bantu knots twice and I guess I need additional time for my hair to dry or do them on dry hair because they take forever to dry for me. I think they look nice on other people, just not so much luck with them so far for me. Alicia hair looks great and she has alot of it!
Thanks for sharing! I'm going to try this on me and my daughter's hair. I'm just going to have to give it some extra time to dry and start early in the evening!
Really pretty....but how did she sleep on those bad boys?i've come to the conclusion i have a sensitive scalp/head. bantu knots, all rollers except the sponge type, headbands, tight hats, pulling my hair in buns/puffs ALL cause me great discomfort..... :(i want to do a bun badly but the pain of just pulling this dense stuff up is not worth the pain....i like the idea of bantu knots on dry hair b/c my hair takes forever to dry...i think that was my issue with bantu knots...they didn't seem to ever dry.
I love, love, love bantu knots. I rope twisted my hair Tuesday and styled them into bantu knots which I wore to work Wednesday. Today I took the knots loose and my twists are all cute and curly.
I haven't tried bantu knots/outs, but I like the results.
Co-sign...the only thing she's doing differently from me is that she's doing them on an old twistout with a little bit of product. So maybe I'll try that next time.
Nice results! I always tension blowdry my hair until it's 80% dry before knotting. I use ORS Lock & Twist gel for hold and shine. I don't two-strand twist first, but will try that out. I'm inspired to bantu knot tonight!
Pretty!!! She can really sing (unless she was lip synching, LOL). I'm glad she added the tip about uncurling the strands with oil. My hair always does well until you get to the "take down" stage.
Sleeping in rollers and bantu knots is a pain for me too. I once slept in 90-some tiny flexirods... I just pop a couple of ibuprofen and call it a night.
My bantu knot-outs turn out best on stretched old twisted out hair. I looove Lock & Twist gel for my twist-and-curls and flexirod sets. I can't wait to try it on a bantu knot out.
That is some SERIOUS bounce! Lovely!
Ms. Alicia your hair is beautiful girl! Can't wait to try this!!! I am 3 months out from my last relaxer, and this is the perfect transition style!
Great style I think the reason hers turned out so well, is one it was done on an old twist out, NOT freshly washed hair and the length she was gave it the bounce. OAN, her edges look like they are thinning,...
Sleeping in bantu knots is just not fun, but I honestly think Curlformers are worse. At least there is some flex in the knots being made of hair. The formers are like sleeping with a cactus on your head. What we do (lose sleep) for awesome hair. . .
I watched this video on youtube and according to the description box, she used Cantu Shea Butter Leave In.
I am in love with that song and her hair is gorgeous! Go Alicia sing it! I really suck at Bantu knots that I stopped doing them they come out a frizzy disaster after seeing this I might try again. Crossing my fingers hope it turns out great.
I love this look. I am actually going to try this over the weekend. Wish me luck! www.shopperstherapy.blogspot.com
I love my bantu knot-outs. My curls come out tighter and last longer than with twist outs but they take forever to dry!
I love Alicia's hair and her beautiful spirit! I'm glad to see her on the site!
She probably pineappled her curls. Just a guess.
I have tried the Bantu knot out before. It was okay on my hair. I prefer twist outs. I like Alicia's Bantu knot out though! :-)
Agreed! It is not easy to sleep on those.
Her hair is gorgeous. I did bantu knot outs when I was transitioning but I have yet to do them on my fully natural hair.
Go for it. The curls are usually really nice.
Wow, beautiful hair!. I think I will revisit bantu knot outs on dry stretched hair. Thanks!
Wow. She twists fast lolA well-moisturized twist out does pretty well. I spray my hair with a water, aloe vera juice, and conditioner mixture, and get heavy on the shea butter. That's all :)
One thing I like about not using heat to create curls is that I feel my curls last longer. I often times will keep the knots or curlers in overnight. With them staying much longer than just 30 min to an hour under a dryer, the have better hold and last longer.
Yes, I love that song! Even made the hubby watch lol
I think I will. Thanks!
