Bantu Knot-Out Review

Transition Style: Bantu Knot-Out

Apprx 'Fixin' Time: 15-30mins

Approx 'Settin' Time: Overnight-24 hours (depending on how much time I've got)

Tools: Wet-damp detangled hair, styling mousse and elastics (I'm using small fabric covered ones)

Pros: A million times quicker than either or the other styles I had tried before. The time it akes to fix literally depends on how long your hair is and how tight you want the curls when you take the knots out. The tighter the curls you want, the more knots you have to do. It's a really really easy technique as well and that's always a good thing.

Cons: If the knots aren't relatively small, it won't blend the new growth as well as the TnC when taken out. I think unless I sat under the dryer, which y'all know i don't have time for, it's not going to last all week - maybe 2-3 days max but then that depends on how tight you make the curls.

Rating: *****

Overall Comments: This is my signature transition style at the moment because it's so easy. The fact that you have to do it every 2-3 days suits me fine right now because of the new regimen I'm adopting for the summer. At night I sleep with a bonnet and fluff it in the morning with some moisturizing mist, put a band on the front and then i'm good to go - so quick! I love it!
