  • Bantu Knots

    Has anyone tried this? I have tried 3 times and my problems were
    1) many of the knots unraveled before the am
    2) some of my locs were not curly/wavy
    3) even if I wanted to wear the knots as a protective style they just weren't neat to wear out..lol
    Any advice? On yeah and I used water and motions mousse before wrapping the knots. Sincerely,
    Locs that are tired of being worn straight LOL

    I would suggest loc knots if you're going for a super curly look. You can youtube chescalocs video on the 2strand and 1strand methods. I've had excellent curls from loc knots, and I only sed water. Hope that helps!

      Hey! I do bantu knots and they turn out really cute...i only use moisturizing lotion and coconut oil to seal...i use rubber bands to hold them in place over night but i don't wrap them multiple times...i get the small black ones...my curls come out soft and bouncy and tight like i like em! Its always one knot that dosent act right though ...lol! Good luck!

          @Ace_diva thanks I will definately check out the her videos ASAP!

          @kinkykay Your advice was helpful bc I still might try the small rubberbands bc that will prob help keep those babies in!

                      Here's a pic of me with bantu knots sitting under my dryer. I used a mixture of lotta body, Evoo oil, and Sally's version of wen conditioner, and water. Plan to take them out before work tomorrow. Wish me luck!

                          They turned out well! I'm still not completely satisfied bc I want really curly locs so I probably need to leave the knots in longer than over night or use rollers!

                            I have my locs styled in Bantu knots during the summer & I'll have to look back & see if I have any pics.
