Bantu NOT

I have been natural for almost three years now (december 16th is my naturalversary) and I have come to the reality that certain hairstyles are not for everyone. I have tried and tried, looked at tutorials and tutorials but I can’t seem to get my bantu knot on point!

bantu NOTThis is my LATEST attempt at the bantu knot out, I am just going to refer to it as the bantu NOT out. because I can’t seem to get the definition that I see on youtube and IG. I have attempted them just by twisting the hair around itself, putting hair in two strand twist and THEN wrapping in bantu knot. I have done it on wet hair, semi dry hair, dry hair and none of them seem to work. I know when to throw in the towel lol Here is one of my BEST bantu knot outs.

Bantu YESThis was over TWO years ago, do you see that definition? to bad they were not dry all the way through so I had to pin-up the sides and rock it like that.

Here is another attempt after my hair had grown out a little after my tapered cut last year.

Bantu KNOTAgain NO BUENO lol I try and I try. Hey I have accepted it. Some people can’t rock a wash n go, my look that is on the back burner will be the bantu knots. Who knows maybe one day I will visit this style again but for now I will stick with what I know, Wraps,Twistouts, Puffs and Buns 🙂

Keep the hair simple
