  1. does this style look nice on meduim length hair and short as it do like your hair?
    best one i have seen soo far btw

    1. I can’t say, I never tried it when my hair was shorter. Thank you though – I think I saw some other tutorials on YT where people had shorter hair too.

  2. Love the bantu knot out Elle! Just wanted to stop by and give you much love. I transitioned for 16months, till I happened to stumble upon one of your vids on YT when Izzy was in the TWA stage. Girl I took a scissors to my head and haven’t looked back since. (Yes I eventually got it all cleaned up by a professional cause my cutting skills aren’tt great). I just wanted to commend you on this blog and your FB page. I check in religiously. Your reviews and opinions are always real and down to earth and have been a great help to me in picking products now that I’m 100% natural. Your explaination on dews helped a LOT!!! I’m in Miami, tested it out for myself and am starting to know what works when for me. Thanks for being you and all you do!

    1. Thank you so much. 🙂 I’m really happy that the blog has been helpful to you. And I definitely had to get my big chopped cleaned up as well, lol!

  3. Hi Elle,
    So a few quick questions, how long did the style last? If longer than a day how did you get it to stay overnight (ie how did you wrap it, if you did in fact wrap it). Your awesome by the way!

    1. Right now I’m on day two and I wore my hair in four buns to sleep.The curls are pretty stretched but imo it’s wearable. And thanks!

    1. It’s holding up fairly well (much better than the last one), especially considering that our dew is 54 and I outside for about 45 min walking.
