How To: Perfect Smooth & Sleek Bantu Knot Out on Natural Hair – No Frizz

Hey Sistas! Are you looking for the perfect smooth and sleek Bantu Know Out tutorial for your natural hair? Well, look no further! I seriously love this natural hairstyle! Bantu knot outs always come out so pretty! I’m shocked it took me so long to create another tutorial on them. My first tutorial was a two strand twist bantu knot out on kinky curly hair. This is my first attempt at doing it on dry, blown out hair, and I love the results! Lets get started!

Products Needed:

The Process:

Step 1: Start with freshly washed, detangled hair that has been sectioned into about 10 large twists
Step 2: Unravel the first twist, place half of the hair that was twisted above the section that you’re working on, and add a hair clip to secure it
Step 3: Spray your heat protectant to the section
Step 4: Start from the bottom with the dryer and work your way up to your roots. Pass it through your hair at different angles – from the bottom, top, etc.
Step 5: Repeat steps 3 & 4 until you’ve completed your entire head
Step 6: Section the blown out hair with your hair clips
Step 7: Start from the back and grab a small portion of hair from one of your section and apply your product
Step 8: Begin tightly winding/twisting the hair, starting at the roots, and continue down until the hair starts to curl on itself
Step 9: Bring the hair up and Wrap the it around at the roots in a ball shaped knot
Step 10: Keep twisting until you get to the ends and tuck it under the knot
Step 11: Turn the knot as if you’re screwing in a light bulb so the hair stays in place
Step 12: Repeat steps 7-10 until you’ve completed your entire head
Step 13: Sleep in a satin bonnet and when you wake up the next morning, begin carefully unwinding the bantu knots as if you’re unscrewing a light bulb
Step 14: After you’ve taken down all of the knots, start separating the hair where it naturally wants to part. If a section doesn’t want to separate, leave it alone so you don’t create frizz
Step 15: Use your hair pick to add some volume and achieve your desired look
Note: Pineapple your hair at night to maintain this style
