One of the great things about curly hair is that it can hold a curl! It may sound obvious, but when you twist, braid or bun straight hair often times you are just left with a crease. So that is why we relish in the opportunity to manipulate our curl pattern heatlessly and then watch in admiration as the curls stay curly all day long.

In this tutorial UrbanOG demonstrates how to achieve big beautiful curls with no heat and minimal product. Because this style will rely on bantu knots, these sexy tresses are best achieved when set overnight. A major plus factor of this style has to do with the fact that there are no rollers needed when setting this style.

For this style you’ll need to make sure your hair has been freshly washed and has a little leave in conditioner, like Design Essential’s Natural Almond & Avocado Leave-In Conditioner. This will help work as a deep conditioner as your hair sits over night as well as helping to minimize frizz and dryness. Continue by patting the hair dry until it’s mostly damp. You don’t want soaking hair because drying time will take a lot longer. Following that, be sure to use a wide tooth comb to separate any tangles you may have. Once you’ve removed any knots or kinks with your wide tooth comb, begin sectioning off the hair for your bantu knots. Once the hair is sectioned you can begin twisting the hair in each section. You’ll want to make sure that you roll the hair all the way up to the scalp. Oh, and don’t forget to use hair pins to secure! Let hair sit until the following morning, gently take down and your fabulous bantu knots should look like stunningly transformed waves!
