Its been a while since I've done a Heatless Hair Adventure, and when I saw the tutorial for the Bantu Knot and the beautiful Spiral Curls it creates I had to give it ago! So true to HHA I haven't ever done this before and its my very first attempt! So here's a lovely little pictorial on how to do them!
Step 1: You want to brush out all of the knots and tangles in you hair. It needs to be nice and smooth.
Step 2: Start with a front middle section and begin twisting and wrapping the hair to form a spiral bun, it should sit on top of your head all crazy like, then bobby pin in place.
Step 3: Repeat. So Grab more sections, these can be as big or as small as you like twist, wrap and pin all over your head.
Step 4: Mist with water and leave over night or for at least 4 hours.
* Tip * try not to wrap too tightly at the base, they start to get tighter as you go, and they can be a tad uncomfortable!*
4 hours later...
After 4 hours my scalp was screaming at me so I decided to de-pin and unravel my knots and separate them. The end results were...not how I'd imagined/hoped. I'm not sure if I should of maybe put some product in or dampened my hair more before wrapping but these are my curls after 4 hours, I have added in some serum and some curl gel.
I do plan on trying this method again, and when I do I'll be sure to update!
I love your heatless hair adventures! I hate using heat on my hair because the ends are so damaged already :(ReplyDelete
Should've kept the knots in and rocked it like Gwen Stefani ;)
Same I sort of internally scream when I use heat on it! I did feel 90's rocker! <3Delete
