What trick do you use to ensure the perfect bantu knot-out?

My bantu knots always come out busted. I think what I learned from this video is that I need to use a product with no water and the way I twist out my hair in the morning.

Hers look soooooo good. Thanks for sharing!

Unless your hair is heat trained or 3b or 3c, they are not going to look like that.

That’s what I hate about these videos sometimes, people think they can achieve the same exact results, but not boo, your hair is a different grade. I have 4a and 4b hair and I know and not about to attempt this because it ain’t coming out like Ms. Gilly.

It looks like she has 4A hair or pretty similar. Doesn’t look 3C.

Wow – great technique! She took the time to pre-stretch her hair – which if you have kinky-coily hair is vital for smooth sets. Note she also used a reversion-proof pomade, which provides shine and suppleness to her hair without adding moisture inducing reversion.

Granted I don’t have the length to get her results, if one has the patience for the two-day steps involved , this is an effective technique for achieving successful knot out on kinky textures!!

I will try her technique with my next knot out!

Great video. Did you have any product on your hair when it was drying it.

Hi Jacqui, did you watch the entire video? There were products used to make the knots.
