Bantu Knots on Dry Hair

In the past, I have always done bantu knots with wet or damp hair. Here is one of my previous bantu knots with wet hair.




So, I decided to try it with dry hair using whipped shea butter to moisturize.


I love the softness and the shine I got from doing the bantu knots with dry hair. I also noticed that there was less frizz and less stiffness of the bantu knot out curls. I must say, when I was doing the knots, I was a little skeptical about how it would turn out. Now, I am quite pleased.

Here is the results...

  1. This is cute!! Bantu-knot outs are on my list of transitioning styles to do. Right now I'm in a twists challenge (with my own hair) so come October..I will be trying all types of styles such as bantu-knot outs etc.

    1. Thanks. I really love bantu knots because I find that when I unravel it, I love the curl effects I get. I still prefer the definition I get from Braid outs.
