How To Do A Bantu Knot Out On Natural Hair *Video

The bantu knot out is one my FAVORITE hairstyles!

Taking bantu knots out can be a little tricky so I spend a bulk of this video showing you my technique for taking out your bantu knots for a gorgeous voluminous look without messing up your curls.

If you master taking out the bantu-knot outs, you’ll almost always get a really beautiful style!

*NOTE: For those not at all familiar with the twisting method of creating the bantu knots, I share it in greater detail after the credits.

I wanted the focus of this video to be on taking bantu knots out so I originally  cut this latter part out of the video for the sake of brevity but then later felt that part could benefit others so there it is (attached after the credits)!

    Hey Cass, have you done this on freshly washed hair or just stretched hair?
    As we discussed, my bantu knot outs never come out right so I’m wondering if it’s because I did it on wet hair? I’ve done it on dry hair but then it just doesn’t hold.

      Hey Michelle! I don’t remember with this one, but I do it on both wet and semi-dry. If my hair is dry (I prefer to do it on dry stretched hair), I spray it with just enough water for it to loosen the hair’s hydrogen bonds but not saturate it so I don’t get extreme shrinkage. I then apply product, namely Sweet Vanilla Butter and proceed to “roll and twist” my hair into bantu knots. Hope that clarifies things a little.

        thanks! I’m doing this today using the sweet vanilla butter. I LOVE this stuff. it just melts right into my hair…i am doing it on dry hair though so I’m using my blow dryer to stretch my hair a little. Since my curls are not coily tight, I can blast my hair quick and eliminate most of my natural curl pattern. I’ve done it on wet hair and my natural curls are so obvious they blend too much with the knot out and it doesn’t look as smooth.

        So, I’m going to upload the review video in a couple of days. it’s going to be a 2 parter :-) I’ll send you the links when ready.

    I did my BC a few months ago. Switched to essential oils looking for organic moisturizers. I noticed that my hair is much thicker than I thought now that it is not relaxed. I still cheat and wear weave braids. Hopefully next month I’ll be brave enough to be truly free.

    Do you have any suggestions on hairstyles while transitioning? I want to transition until my hair gets to shoulder length

    hey hon, I generally don’t do them on dry hair. I do them on damp hair and always use a butter or a gel. It usually dries overnight and the definition is good, unless I had a short night where my hair did not get a chance to dry fully. Perhaps you need a good defining product and to sit under a dryer.

    I’ve tried Bantu knots outs a few times on wet hair and it takes DAYS to dry and then has no definition. Did you do your Bantu knots on dry hair?

    Cassandre, Thanks so much for your site and your videos they are a blessing. I’ve been natural for 12 years now but don’t know how to do any natural styles and have a few questions: 1) For Bantu Knot out, do you re-twist them every night and how do you sleep with it out? 2) What is your hair type, 3 ab or c? Mine is similar to yours and I don’t know how to classify it. 3) How do I purchase your products? Thanks!

      Hi Kim! The answers to your questions can be found in this post. My hair type is 4b. You can find my product line by clicking the “hair products” tab above or go here. Take care!
