Get Big Curls with Tiny Buns or Bantu Knots + Video

This morning . . . after sleeping on the little spiral buns


Remove pins and let spirals un-twirl . .. .make sure they are fully dry …you can use a hair dryer a bit but it’s better to do it before unravelling buns. …I don’t mind a little frizzzzzzz …

Use your fingers to separate waves …do not brush out.


I made the top section a little larger/thicker so the curl wasn’t as tight which sort of lays over the rest. . . .The smaller sections and more twisted spiral buns you do all over your head, the curlier it turns out.

Use a small barrel curling iron {in this fashion} on stray pieces. But really, the point of it is NOT to be perfect. You want it big and messy and crazy!


Watch this very old video of me creating my bantu knots…

You would think that …uh, I dunno, I’d put on some make-up and maybe . … uhhh, something cute least a bra – before I did one of these …lol.
