Cute Bantu Knot Out On 4c Natural Hair

Cute Bantu Knot Out On 4c Natural Hair

Oh don’t hurt em Chizi! We have seen a million Bantu knot outs on blogs, forums and especially on YouTube, and still we are not bored. In the below video Chizi Duru demonstrates her Bantu knot out hair style which looks totally adorable and we couldn’t resist sharing it here.

Bantu knots can be done in a couple of different ways, for instance you can section your hair and just begin twisting the sections in one direction until it curls on itself and then pin in place.

Or a simple way to do it is to two strand twist the section first and then twist ‘the twist’ in one direction until it curls on itself creating the illusion of a knot. Whichever way you choose to do it the results should be some awesome tight curls that can be worn all week if you need to.

For the best results:

1. Section size determines curl size – The more sections you have the curlier your hair will be and the larger the section the wavier you hair will be.

2. Moisture levels – For some reason Bantu knots work better when the hair is at least slightly wet and moisturized but not soaking wet. Let you hair air dry first or use a blow dryer on a cool/warm setting before twisting.


3. Make sure your hair is smooth – Use a Denman brush if necessary but make sure your hair is smooth and the product is spread evenly throughout the section before twisting.

4. Use a styler – Aint nothing wrong with a little hold! So pick out your best styler and use it on each section. Holding creams are probably a little better than hardcore gels, but it really depends on what works best on your hair.

5. Air Dry – Air dry your hair if possible, it will take longer but the results are well worth it. Still a hooded dryer or a bonnet dryer are also really great in a pinch because they use gentle diffuse heat rather than direct heat. But make sure to wait until your hair is completely dry before unraveling the knots.

    One looks like straw curls and the other knots. but if you sit under the dryer or air dry your knots you will have better results. straws curls are good for natural too. i have been off perms for a year a some of my hair is processed. i do this style daily.

    I love this hairstyle, I’ve done this and it turned out great. I also did it with braiding my hair and then twisting it in a circle and it turned out good also. But doing twisting instead of braids is much easier to take down. Ijs
