Dry Bantu Knot Out Takedown – First Attempt!

Deets below!

Check out my Facebook for the pic of my blowout! It was huge!

Products Used –
Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Smoothie
Carol’s Daughter Hair Balm
Carol’s Daughter Hair Elixir
Unrefined Shea Butter
Goody Hair Bands

I blew my hair out using the Hair Balm, then went over my whole head with the Hair Elixir. Added a bit of shea to my ends, then did about 16 knots and went to sleep! Ta-da!

    quick question – how long did it last (i think you mentioned you would be re-bantu-ing it at night?)

      LOL….honestly I couldn’t get it to last more than a day…after a couple of hours my hair would just get bigger and bigger – our dews are around 60 right now. I actually tried to add a heavier creme in order to provide a little more hold, tried hairspray…nada. Poof!

    Love it! Looks great! I’ve never done a dry Bantu knot out, you just inspired me to try. I love how you really separated it to make your hair nice and big.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Elle:

    the hair looks great…have you reviewed the Carols Daughter’s products in any previous videos? I can get them on the ground in NY, and I am always looking for good on the ground prods….

    Elle I would certainly say you did well for your first Bantu Knots. Izzy looks like a royal goddess. 🙂 Did you wash before blowdrying it? Could you show us the pre-steps before process of bantu knotting? I am so loving this. Do you recommend using light hold type of products? They look just as pretty left in Bantu knots.

      Thank you! I did not wash my hair – just rinsed and dc’ed with the Black Vanilla Smoothie – everything I did I went over in the video. I can’t show the steps before doing the knots because I blew my hair out and it took like, two hours…I won’t be doing that again for quite some time. I also listed all of the products that I used in the post…
