6 Tips for the Best Bantu Knot Out Ever

Bantu knotsI have been struggling with bantu knot outs since I first began my transitioning journey! Out of all of the styles I’ve tried, bantu knot outs have given me the most problems to date, and I’m sure there are a few naturalistas out there that may agree.

The truth is, just like every other style, bantu knot outs almost have a science to them. Although they may not come out perfect every time, they can still look great. And, after watching some of my favorite bloggers (and through trial and error), I think I’ve officially learned a few tips for getting the best bantu knot out. Read the tips below and add your own tips in the comments!

Section

Sectioning hair is important when doing any style. Although you don’t have to always use a comb to make neat, distinguished sections, you still want to make sure that your sections are the appropriate size.

Larger sections will give you a looser and wavier bantu knot out, however smaller sections will mean a smaller and tighter curl.

Keep the rest of your hair sectioned and out of the way each time that you work on a section, just so that it’s easier to manage. You will find that sectioning your hair makes doing the rest of style much easier and it causes you to take less time doing the following steps.

Detangle


Always detangle your hair fully before attempting a fresh style. Otherwise you can have knots and tangles in your hair, or the style won’t come out as neat.

Either finger detangle, use a denman brush, Tangle Teaser, or a wide tooth comb for each section. It will also make it easier to install the style, and it will come out sleek once it’s finished. As always, detangle from ends to root to remove shed hair and prevent excess breakage.

Hi! My name is Victoria Sallie and I'm a twenty something year old blogger & student living in NYC. I began my transitioning natural hair journey in January 2013, and big chopped in April 2014. I decided to start writing because I wanted to document my hair journey, plus I realized that I couldn't find all the information I needed in ONE place on the internet. Deciding to return back to my natural hair was one of the best choices that I've ever made, and I'm glad to help anyone that has a question. Happy Hair Journey!
