I’ve always wanted to try a Bantu Knotout on straightened hair. The times I’ve done it in the past, it was on wet hair and by the morning my hair hadn’t dried. That always made the style a lot frizzier and more shrunken than I wanted.
To start, I moisturized each section separately with African Pride – Bouncy Curls Pudding from my October CurlBox. I still love that stuff! I twisted, then knotted each section. I made about 9 Bantu Knots. 4 in the back and 5 on top.
In the past, I had done two strand twists then knotted my hair. This time, I did more of a coil. I’m definitely pleased with the results.
…and guess who I met up with…
Two of my favs from the original Curly Nikki presents Kim Coles’ Grow Out Challenge… Shelli from Hairscapades and Marsha from Hairology and our sisters, Marsha’s beautiful daughter (which you may have seen on her site or IG a few times) and her cousin who was kind enough to play Kodakman.
We had a nice brunch at Rue 57 in Manhattan and chatted, mostly about hair! Definitely some wonderful women!
I can’t wait to hang out again.
