Bantu Knot-out Day 2

By January 27th, 20219 Comments

Hola Chicas!

My hubby’s really been dishing out the complements lately! From what I can surmise, he likes my hair in any style, but he’s really feeling the Bantu Knot-Out. It’s a bit bigger today, and quite a bit frizzier, but I’m feeling it too.

Before bed last night, I applied Oyin’s Whipped Shea to the crown and ends of my hair. I went to sleep with it out on my satin pillow case (I usually sleep on my right side, and lay the hair on that side over the top of the pillow). I honestly don’t think it’ll make it to day 4, but I don’t have a choice- I’m henna’ing on Thursday night and don’t plan to re-do it before then. So, I’ll pretty much look like a bucket o’ frizz come Thursday morn, but I’ll get over it :-)

    I like it too! I’m giving the bantu knot out a try again. Can you believe it took me over an hour!! I hope it’s worth it. I have a little head but thick hair. I think I have 30 knots in it. I did not double strand first, so we shall see. I had to redo some of the edges – they were too tight. Let ya know how it comes out in the morning.

    this is a nice day 2 look. i want to try the knots but i’m not ready, lol. i’ll have to try them on a weekend or something, so if they don’t come out right, i’m not going to meetings at work looking sily!

    In my bantu knot days (which I’m def going to revive- you’ve inspired me!) by the time I got to day 4 it was usually more a bit puff than curl – but it was still cute! You never know – it might be a good look…
    In case anyone is wondering about how to keep these kinds of curls together at night, what worked for me back then was tying them down with a satin scarf and then just lightly fluffing the curls (they got a bit flattened) and arranging them back in place in the AM. Something to consider if CN’s method doesn’t work for you (I’m a rough sleeper – keeping them out at night just didn’t work out for me!)

    Whipped shea really does spruce things up! This looks nice :)

    I’m so amazed how your curls look amazing even after sleeping on your hair! I’m a rough sleeper so it would be hard to keep them looking that great!
    Love your hair!!
