Bantu Knot Out on my Blown Out Stretched Hair

Bantu Knots and tough sleeping.
Hello everyone!  Can you tell that I'm not in school right now.  Even though I'm back to work, my grad classes don't start until February and since I'm waiting for my textbook to be shipped to my I totally feel like I have a ton of time for myself.  Yep pee!  Anyway, with this extra time I have been playing with my hair.  Which means I got to watch some YouTube videos and though, hey I can do that!  So, with my big fluffy blown out hair I did about 12-14 Bantu Knots all over my head last night before I went to bed with my satin scarf and for back up my satin pillow case.

I will admit that I watched one of KimmayTube's videos and decided to try her method since I had this blown out big hair going on.  In the morning I poured some jojoba oil on my hands and took the knots out.  After separating the knots a little (being careful to avoid frizz) I ended up with this finished look below.

Can I say luscious, wavy, cascading curls.  What more can a girl ask for from a Bantu Knot out!

Well, I absolutely love the results!  I got these cascading wavy curls and got to keep the fullness and volume of my big hair.  All I can say is WOW!  Now that hubby of mine was kinda pawing at me.  Touching my hair and sniffing my neck.  I thought he was going to take a bite out of my neck because he wouldn't leave me alone.   I first thought it was the delicious turkey pot pie I made today, which could of contributed to the sniffing.  Big hair I guess equals lots of attention, or he feels like he can pet me because usually I'm telling him not to touch (my hair) because I don't want my curl definition to be messed up.

Anyway, at school it was either "I love it!", or "What did you do with you hair?", or the safe comment "I like your flower".  I found that throughout the day I was constantly pushing my bangs out of my eyes.  Hello, that hasn't happened in over two years!  I find that with the Bantu Knot out, my hair continued to fall and get bigger.  The next time I try this I should probably do more knots or separate the knots less.  I don't know if I will get to wearing a bun this week.  With awesomely wavy hair and the cold temps, down may be in order.  Until next time...

Blessings!

    1. I know, since the end of the fall semester that hubby has been telling me how much he has missed me. I've been home, just not available.

    2. I completely understand. You don't realize how much time you used to spend with one another until something like kids or school gets in the way. Don't worry it's temporary!

  2. Looks good and now you know that hubby REALLY likes it. Taking a bite out of your neck, touching your hair, pawing at you, sniffing yo' neck . . . this all made me smile with all of my teeth showing. Hee hee! You got a 2for1 . . . cascading waveliciousness AND warm affection from your husband.

    1. The hubby is a touchy kind of guy and I know he likes something when he touches it. But the whole in my space and pawing me look me back to our newlywed days.

    1. I love KimmayTube's videos, it's just that it feels like cheating sometimes instead of coming up with an original look.
