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!
This 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.
Here is another attempt after my hair had grown out a little after my tapered cut last year.
Again 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 🙂
What are some of your hairstyles that you have decided you will take a break from trying? What are some of your Favorite style?
