As it turns out, bantu knots are even more advantageous than you think! They’re actually a nice, healthy, and easy way to get bouncy curly hair.

It’s also a simple overnight hairstyle! So, see how you can create it.

Before you start:

  • Make sure you have a rattail comb, it’s necessary for sectioning.
  • Curl cream will come in handy, as it can enhance the curling effect.
  • Don’t forget about afro comb; it will untwist your curls without spoiling them.

How to:

  1. With a rattail comb, section off the places for your knots and braid the hair so as not to mix the separate strands.
  2. Before doing a bantu knot, brush the strand, straightening it a bit.
  3. Create bantu knots all over your head and give them a day or a night and untwist them with an afro comb.
  4. Gently run your fingers through your curls, adding body to your curly hairdo.
