Default How long do your bantu knot out last?

I bantu knotted my hair and I LOVE the results. Any suggestions on how to get it to last longer. I am getting about 2 days, if I'm lucky.

I know part of the issue is that the product i use makes my hair slightly damp, so it's still damp when I take them down. I'm going to dry them better, but any other suggestions?

I switched products. So far that seems to helping. The ors was causing tangles

Ok, for anyone interested, I am now getting 5+ days

Day 1 - i don't separate the curls as much. So they are kinda tight that first day

Around day 3, i start redoing random knots around my hair (the ones that have become really fuzzy0

around day 5 - I add a headband


I think I have my new winter style. Woohooo!!!!

I wish my bantu knot out curls looked like that! Those are gorgeous. I haven't had a successful knot out yet- when I go to blend my part lines all my definition has gone out of the window. I may have to try it now that I've been doing the curly girl method, since my wash and go's last longer too.
