That’s How We Roll

Standard

I know that I’m not the only one who rocks the DL scarf on the way to work. The problem is … remembering to bring them back in the house!! I don’t know how many times that I’ve found half of my scarves in the car!

Yesterday, I remembered to bring in the one I wore in to work. When I walked in the door and dropped it on the buffet, he decided he felt like wearing it, I guess.

Seriously y’all. He walked and sat around with this on his head for a good 2 hours. I think he forgot about it! But, when I mentioned it, he said, “It’s keeping my head warm.” LMBO!!!! Gotta love him 🙂 ;)!!

A Bantu Knot Out

Standard

So, you know, I’m kinda addicted to IG nowadays. And when I saw this HAWT hair pic posted by @PrincessLinz HAWT pic (who I got to meet at the CurlyNikki Meet-up this past summer), I had to ask her for a tutorial! Hope that you like it!!

BANTU KNOT OUT RESULTS ON WET HAIRby PrincessLinzz

Bantu Knot Out Process on Wet Hair

  • I co-wash my hair and use my usual leave-in: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab mixed with water and put into a spray bottle.
  • Section my hair in 4 sections and begin with the right side (just out of habit).
  • Make smaller sections within those 4 sections and spray my hair with my leave-in concoction from root to tip.
  • Take a dime size of Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Pudding and run it through each small section from root to tip.
  • Create corkscrew/buns throughout my entire head.

  • Let hair air dry over night.
  • If my roots are still wet, I use a blow dryer on warm/cool and dry my roots.
  • Then, I remove each corkscrew/bantu knot and separate each one so that the curls look fuller and creates more body.
  • Shake head from side to side, pick my roots with my fingers and voilà  … you get this:

When I bantu knot on straightened hair I do not use any product just hair pins.

Okay, okay. I know what you’re thinking. “OMGosh!! Her hair is gorgeous!! How long has she been natural?!? What’s her regimen?!? Where’s her hairstory?!?!” Don’t worry! I got you!! You know I’ve already asked for it. And now that I finally posted this, I’m sure that I’ll get it soon ;)!

How do you do a Bantu Knot-out? Do you prefer styling on wet or dry hair?
