Another No Heat Curl Try (Bantu Knots Outs)

This past weekend I decided to give another no heat curl method a try (this was the first I tried). It is called bantu knot outs and is fairly easy to do. You can find a tutorial here. It’s something that can work for every hair type. I wasn’t sure my hair would be long enough to stay in place, but they did. I kept the knots up with bobby pins. My daughter thought it was funny and looked like I had noodles on my head. Love that girl! She makes me laugh.

For this first try, I prepared my hair as the same way I did for the headband one. My hair was pretty much dry and I just used my hands to put on water to make it a little damp then added some hair gel (lightly). Then I did the twists. To play around with it, I did the twists in various sizes.

For my hair, short/thick/layered, the smaller knots made more of a curly look. The bigger knots created waves. So, even though it wasn’t super curly, it came out nice. The best thing about this for me was how much body it gave my hair. It was ridiculous! I had to bobby pin it back and own because it was crazy! In a good way though :)
