Knot Common! How To: Bantu Knots

Lya Navarra

Author Lya Navarra


    Trendsetter Kelly Osbourne flaunted her new engagement ring on "The Talk", but any right-minded hair junkie wasn't looking at the ring - those Bantu Knots stole the show!

    Bantu Knots can be done on any type of hair as a style or a set - the coarser the texture and the smaller the section, the tighter the curl.

    1. Section hair into manageable sections around the entire head.
    2. Apply a leave-in treatment like Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine to damp hair to make it more pliable and add control.
    3. Use fingers or a professional styling brush to smooth the section.
    4. Apply Redken Real Control Crema Care Daily Nourishing Styling Treatment from roots to ends to help hold knots.
    5. Roll/twist each section tightly and let it wind around itself to create a tight coiled bun/knot and tuck the ends up into the bun - coarser hair will tuck under easier, you can also use a pin to secure.

    If you desire more control, finish with Redken control addict 28 for a touchable hold.
