After the hot, sweaty weekend that was Made in America, I definitely had to wash my hair but wasn’t in the mood to blowdry/straighten it. I’ve done bantu knots before on blowdried/dirty hair, but haven’t tried on air-dried hair before… I think it worked out pretty well! The results are rougher than if I blowdried/straightened it first, but it has a kind of wild look that I like =)
In the morning, I took the knots out, and used my fingers to separate them. The easiest way is to unwind them, hold them that way, and separate them while unwound. When you let go, the waves/curls will spring back. Don’t brush, don’t comb!! Just use your fingers – anything else will make your hair a frizzy mess. Voila!
