How to Bantu Knot out on Natural Hair

Hey Loves, I’m very excited about today’s post because bantu knot out is one of my go to styles. I love how my strands are transformed to a curlier fro without using heat and with minimal efforts. Lately I have been wearing the knots out over the weekend but I have to admit it took me some courage to do so.


This is how I created the look…..


Step one: Started off with Freshly washed, deep conditioned hair and used a tshirt to squeeze the excess water out of my hair.

Step Two: Sectioned my hair

Step Three: Detangled and Moisturized using the LOC method. My Leave-in of choice was Shea Moisture Strengthen, Grow and Restore, Oil was Coconut and Cream was Waridi Butter from AjaniHandmade.

Step Four:  Installed a Two Strand twist then twisted on top of the hair to form a Knot

Step Five: Air dried and Slept with a sanit bonnet at night

Step Six: After the knots were 100% dry, I pulled them down and separated the twists

Step Seven: To get rid of the all of the parts, I used an afro comb to gently lift the roots making sure I was not pulling the comb all the way through.

Tip” As you separate the curls make sure you do so very carefully and also twirl your fingers around the curl at the ends to keep them curly and avoid frizz. ”


Enjoy the Tutorial below.

    Hello, How long did you have this style for? How did you maintain it during the period you had it on?
    I absolutely love this and want to try it as well but would love to know how to keep it looking this nice for at least a week if possible!
