Corporate Hair a la Trish!!

By Curly Nikki 24 Comments

Hi Nikki, Here are a few pictures of my corporate hair. These are two-stand twists pinned up and to the side. After washing, I used Shea butter as an overall moisturizer, then twisted with Biosilk drops and a very small amount of IC gel. (I liked the combo, but I probably will just use Aloe Vera gel next time. I…

Minor Routine Change

By Curly Nikki 7 Comments

We’re quickly approaching the weekend…can I get an Amen?! I’ve tweaked my routine ever so slightly…from now on (or at least until I change my mind again 😉 ) I’ll only be washing/detangling/styling my hair once a week. I’ll wear it out in a Bantu Knot-Out, or Twist-n-Curl until it becomes ridiculously frizzy and then bun it. I haven’t re-styled…

Our Resident Curly Guy on Bantu Knots

By Curly Nikki 22 Comments

I saw Curlee’s Bantu-Knot out results on a few weeks ago and just had to get an exclusive. I’m incredibly jealous- his hair is AMAZING! Here’s what he had to say: First, I separated my hair into the separate Bantu knots on dry hair so it would be easier to manage in the shower. I had maybe about 5…

oooop2- Bantu Knot-Out Results

By Curly Nikki 10 Comments

I co-washed my hair w/DevaCurl. Afterward, I used a bit more DevaCurl and Hello Hydration condish as a leave-in. I then applied my shea-aloe mix to my damp hair and did about 15 knots. When I woke up, my twists were still damp. I guess I started the process too late- tried to blowdry some, but it was taking too…

End of the Day Knot-Out Results

By Curly Nikki 40 Comments

Bottom Line– I like the results- adding it to my arsenal of hair styles. Pros: It yields more of a consistent curl pattern from root to tip (compared to the TwistnCurl which yields waves and curls) Relatively easy to sleep on Quick styling time- hopefully I’ll see this benefit after a few more times I look slightly less crazy on…

Jenius J on Bantu Knot-Outs

By Curly Nikki 17 Comments

Jenius J: I used this style to transition without doing the BC. I do double-strand twists, then roll into the knots, and fix with bobby pins. I have a big head so I do AT LEAST 20 knots…I typically twist one day, air dry overnight, then wear for a week. The twists come out really tight, and loosen up and…

I’m Ready to Try a New Style…

By Curly Nikki 14 Comments

Hola Chicas! After looking at the gorgeous hair in this fotki, and seeing Empressri’s short vid, I’ve decided that it’s time to try a Bantu Knot-out! So, I’m commissioning you gorgeous gals for advice: 1. Do you two-strand twist prior to wrapping the hair around itself, or single strand? 2. How many do you do? 3. Product line up? 4….
