Bantu Knot Out on Transitioning Hair feat. CURLS whipped cream

bantu knot out

Happy Wednesday Loves!

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how I achieved a fierce bantu knot out on my friend Tiana's transitioning 4B hair with the CURLS whipped styling cream. 

PRODUCTS USED

  • Herbalife Strengthening Shampoo. Repairs damage by leaving the hair 10x stronger and reduces breakage by 90% in the 1st use! It contains plant-derived micro-proteins (which strengthen hair) and coconut-derived cleansers that create a reach lather. A plus (my naturalistas) is that this shampoo is color-preserving, sulfate AND paraben free!
  • Herbalife Strengthening Conditioner. This microprotein infused conditioner strengthens hair strands for a softer and silkier feel after one use. Just like the shampoo, it contains hydrolyzed wheat protein (helps to strengthen and aids in repairing the hair), jojoba seed extract (known to be chemically similar to the oils in human skin, it helps improve elasticity and moisturizes) and yucca extract (thickens hair while adding volume).
  • JessiCurl Deep Conditioning Treatment. This thick deep conditioner contains ingredients like moisturizing coca and shea butters deliver intense moisture for your hair especially when used with heat.
  • CURLS Cashmere Curl Leave in Conditioner. This leave in is formulated with cashmere extract (derived from proteins found in goat hair that condition and soften the hair), certified organic aloe leaf (plant derived and contains about 75 nutrients known to promote hair growth, soothes scalp and adds strength to name a few) and coconut milk (extracted from coconuts- it nourishes, de-tangles and conditions the hair) to strengthen, repair and moisturize hair. It also bonds to the hair shaft to strengthen 3 layers of the hair to enhance your curl pattern.

 

  • CURLS Whipped Cream. A thick rich cream that contains ingredients like sunflower oil (light oil high in vitamins A, B, D and E), shea butter, aloe leaf juice and Tahitian coconut oil & gardenia essential oil (re-hydrates, restores shine and bounce) to provide curl definition, frizz protection, moisture and sheen.
  • Pantene Pro-V Truly Natural Shine Serum + Argan Oil. The key ingredient in this product- argan oil, extracted from the Moroccan Argan tree, this oil is rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E to provide intense moisture and long lasting shine.

Flat Twist Out using CURLS blueberry bliss control paste

Flat Twist Out

Since the flat twist out has been my "go-to" style since my Devacut, I wanted to try a new product to give me more hold and definition to make the style last longer. I have always been a fan of the CURLS control pastes but only used it for my edges so I figured if it's good at keeping those laid then why not use it as the styler for my flat twist out!

See how I acheived this style below.... 


On an old Bantu knot out....

  1. Flat twisted using CURLS "blueberry bliss control paste" & "whipped cream."
  2. Slept overnight.
  3. Next day took down/ separated using Shu Uemura "nourishing protective oil" making sure my hands were fully coated so I didn't cause a lot of frizz.
  4. Used a pick to add volume.

  4. Gathered hair into a low bun using the plastic elastic bands.
  5. Used 14'' loose curly hair I bought from the beauty supply and secured it around my hair with bobby pins.

flexi rod set

HOW I ACHEIVED THIS LOOK:
1) Starting with freshly co-washed hair I coated my hair with Jane Carter Solution "wrap foam" and CURLS "cashmere curl jelly"

2) Using small-large flexi rods & a few perm rods I took medium sized sections of hair and rolled my hair around the rods starting at the base and down (to ensure smooth and defined hair.)

3) Sat under my dryer for 30 minutes on warm/high heat to set and then air dried overnight.

4) Next day, took rods out and using Pantene Pro-V "argan oil" I separated curls.

5) Slicked edges with CURLS "passionfruit control paste."

6) For extra volume, I used a pick to fluff.
