My sister tried out Bantu Knots a little while ago, said they were easy and so Emberly and I decided to try them out.
We started with freshly washed hair and two Blended Beauty products; silk shake for detangling and conditioning, curly frizz pudding for its medium hold. We detangled manageable sections, parted, applied a bit of pudding and twist, twist, twisted, until the hair twisted onto itself. Made sure the ends were well conditioned and they tucked neatly into the base and stayed in place from the tension. We had to go back and re-do a couple because it was easy to make painfully tight.
When we did take them down, voila, curls that resembled corkscrew pasta (Fusilli lunghi bucati). On the first day, some sections got pretty frizzy; they were too large. I read that the longer the hair, the larger the sections, however, that must apply to people with less natural curl (or those that straighten their hair frequently, like maybe me). I re-did just those that night dividing them into two and we were very pleased with the result. Below is her second-day hair.
