1. How to do Bantu knots with natural hair
1.1. Prepare the hair for Bantu knots styles:
- First, wash your hair very well. You don’t have to apply any special hair care product – your regular shampoo will do.
- If your hair easily gets frizzy, use the conditioner. Opt for rinse-out conditioner if your hair easily dries out. Leave-in conditioner is good for you if your hair gets both frizzy and dry after washing. Anyway, the quality conditioner gives extra protection for your hair, while preventing the breaking of the strands.
- Detangle your hair with the help of special comb or hairbrush, if needed. Skip this tip if your hair doesn’t tangle that much.
- Now, dry the hair partially: damp hair is the best option for doing knots and knot-out hairstyles.
1.2. Shape the Bantu knots:
- Separate hair into multiple sections of various widths, depending on the hair length and the final look, using rattail comb. Typically, ladies with short hair separate hair into smaller sections, while those with the long hair use the larger sections. This also depends on whether you are planning to get Bantu knot-outs after that.
- Now, apply the high-quality curl cream (light/mid hold) on your hair. You can use it on every hair section: just twist it in every hair section with your fingers, starting from the hair roots. Keep the high tension for maintaining the shape.
- Then, twist a tiny coil on the scalp base. You have to twist every hair section between your fingertips. Be very careful, don’t make strong moves ‘cause they might cause hair breakage.
- After you have formed the coils, twist the remaining hair around the sections. This will help you to make the hairstyle neater.
- If you have got very tight coils, tuck the ends to hold them in one place. If they are quite loose, use some hair pins to keep them in place.
- Repeat the knotting process on all the remained sections. Wrapped the remaining hair around each coil and tuck or pin them. If your hair is starting to dry, just spray it with water.
