Bantu Knot Out Hairstyle Video Tutorial

February 3, 2010

A Bantu Knot Out is a quick and no fuss transition hairstyle. I’ve made several attempts to do them with my hair but they never come out right. I think the issue for me is that my hair was relaxed bone straight in the past… so the relaxed ends just look very thin as with most styles that I do on wet hair. Below are instructions and a quick video demonstrating how to do a bantu knot.

How To Do A Bantu Knot Out

1. Use a comb to separate your hair into a small section. This section can be in the shape of a square, diamond, triangle,or even a circle if you have a lot of time on your hands. Make sure it is tangle free.

2. Twist this section in one direction until you can twist not more.

3. Wrap the hair around the base at the scalp repeatedly until you can wrap no more.

4. Tuck the end of the hair UNDER the knot itself.

5. Repeat Steps 1-4.
