Bantu Knot Out – Making It Work

Bantu Knot Out 4b/4c #naturalhair

I often hear “your hair is always on point” or “my styles are always a fail, yours always turn out great”. Well I’m here to tell (and show) you that this is not the case. Bantu Knots & Bantu Knot Out styles are always hit or miss for me.

This past weekend, I decided to give the Bantu Knot Out a chance..again. I started on dry hair and add a small amount of Curls Goddess Curls Gel to each section on Friday night. On Saturday (after sleeping fairly well *win*) I work up and was really excited about this Bantu Knot Out I would be rocking later than evening.

I was on my way to Zane’s “The Other Side of Pillow” stage play as a guest of CURLS so I had to make it work. A little Blueberry Control Paste for my edges and two bobby pins later I was out the door.


The play was great and we even had a chance to meet the cast at the CURLS VIP Meet & Greet.


Of course my hair continued to morph as the night went on. It’s been in the 90s in Dallas lately so it was inevitable.

Check out how it all went down in the video below.
