Revive Old Stretched Hair With A Bantu Knot Out

Revive Old Stretched Hair With A Bantu Knot Out

The key to a perfect bantu knot it the technique but arguably before we get to the twisting and twirling the set is the most important part. In this post we see the fabulous Donedo as she show us how she does her bantu knots and how she turns this simple set into a hair style that is a perfect knock out!

So, about the set, follow the below steps to achieve the perfect foundation to your best bantu knot out ever!

► Wash, detangle and air dry your hair or you can use old stretched detangled hair – This post is about using old stretched hair but really the choice is yours. Freshly washed hair gives you a better opportunity to lay on the products the way you need to keep your curls looking shiny and not dull from product on top of product but it’s important to DO THE SET ON MOSTLY DRY STRETCHED HAIR!

I can’t tell you how often we hear ladies complain that bantu knot sets don’t work for them. If you have high shrinkage hair then it’s always best to do it on pre-stretched hair and let the products you apply dampen the hair slightly to set the style. Using stretched old hair has its advantages too because your curls will fall a bit longer.

► Section your hair – Sectioning allows for not only manageability but helps you to determine exactly how curly you want your hair. Small sections means tighter curls while large sections gives you some curl and for some women waves.

► Detangle your hair – The smoother the hair the better, so rid each section of knots and snarls so that when you get to the product application part is easy and you get a smooth curl.


► Apply product – Always moisturize your hair first with a water based product and seal with a light oil or butter. The final product is your holding cream or gel this will help the curls to hold and even bounce a little when the knots are out. But always be light with your product application, you don’t want your hair fully reverting before the set!

► Knot – Twist your hair until it creates a little stacked cinnamon bun, the little buns look more like knots because of the stacking situation. Keep twisting each section until you have completed your entire head.

Another tip is ALWAYS allow your hair to dry fully before unraveling. Removing bantu knots that are not fully dry will lead to frizz and a big curly afro which is fine but not really the look you are going for 🙂

Is there a way to do Bantu knots and immediately take them out with these results? I am not a fan.
