Hello Curl Minds!
Apon request, Medusa has created a picture tutorial of her Bantu knot out. I hope you enjoy!
Shea Moisture Co-Wash Conditioning Cleanser
Creme of Nature Strength and Shine Leave in Conditioner
Lotta Body Wrap Foaming Mousse
Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Reconstructurizer
Silk Remedy Soy Protein Oil
Diffuser, Wide tooth comb, clips and pins.
Step 1: “The Co-Wash” with Shea Moisture Co-Wash Conditioning Cleanser.
Step 2: “The Comb Out” with Creme of Nature’s Strength & Shine Leave-In Conditioner.
Step 3: “The Blow Dry” with ApHogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructrizer (spritzed into hair for heat protection)…diffuser and wide tooth comb.
Step 4: “The Parting” with wide tooth comb.
Step 5: “The Pump & Twist” with Lotta Body’s “Wrap Me” foam. (Twist the hair until it begins to wrap around itself forming the knot. If the knot does not hold in place on its own, use pins like I did here.)
Step 6: “The Wrap Up” with a silk or satin scarf. Until the morning…!
Step 7: “The Twist Down”, using pure silk remedy oiled fingers in an “unscrew” twisting motion.
Step 8: “The Pull Apart” Make sure fingers are oiled to reduce frizz.
Step 9: “The Pick and Fluff” with an afro pick.
Step 10: “The Watch It Grow” Day 1.
Here is an image from that evening, and you can see that Medusa has grown substantially! The final image is from the next morning, where Medusa, has again, gotten larger than the day before. I hope this was inspiring to anyone interested in trying Bantu Knots! Enjoy, and thanks for visiting!
