Last week I wore a hair style that I've been wanting to try for sometime now, bantu knot out! I've attempted this style before on my naturally curly hair, but I either had trouble keeping the bantu knots in place overnight or the results didn't look great in my opinion.
So this time, I tried doing bantu knots on my already straightened hair, and I really loved the turnout!
I used this video as a guide:
She does a great job of explaining the process, suggesting some products, and showing how to take the bantu knots down the next day (something that's easy to mess up).
Here's how my bantu knots looked after I wrapped them. I made the knots using about 2 in. x 2 in. sections of hair. I sprayed some "holding" hairspray on them the next day before taking them down with my hands covered in argan oil.
It was really fun trying a new hairstyle and getting some more use out of my straightened hair.
The waves were fun and went perfectly with my look for the Outkast Concert last weekend!
