Natural Hairstyles | How to Make Bantu Knots Look Cute & Wearable

Bantu knots are a true catch 22. The end result – a bantu knot out – is usually BOMB, but dealing with the prerequisite can be problematic. Because they tend to take forever and a day to dry if you style on wet hair, wearing the knots outside the house is a necessary evil for a busy lifestyle. To a lot of naturals, wearing bantu knots outside is equivalent to wearing rollers outside the house. You’re not going to wear rollers in your head...

Natural Hair Styles | Two Strand Twists with Head Chain

   I get very bored with my protective styles, which is why they are few and in between. I, however, try to rock my two strand twists at least for a couple of days before unraveling them. Usually, this is done by wearing a headscarf, but this time I decided to finally wear this head chain from Forever 21.
