Bantu Knots and Box Braids

Photobucket

Let me start by saying A is not a fan of bantu knots all over. When I first did bantu knots all over her head last Summer she wanted me to take them out because she thought she looked like a "dinosaur with horns" and kept calling the bantu knots horns all day (kids...). That's unfortunate because I think bantu knots look adorable on little girls.

I decided to switch up her Slanted Cornrows and Natural Box Braids style a couple of days later. First I added some Bee Mine Beeloved Hair & Scalp Moisturizer to her hair then all I did was make bantu knots out of the braids hanging down from her cornrows. With the 7 braids I made three bantu knots and tied them off with some cute Tinkerbell ponytail holders, I put her box braids in one ponytail. She had the whole Tinkerbell get up (dress, sandals, jewlery, purse) so it looked really cute! She LOVED it! I'm happy to know now that I can do a few bantu knots here and there in her styles without her thinking she looks like a dinosaur, lol. Making a bantu knot is really simple, you just take the desired amount of hair (or braids/twists) and start twisting the entire section around placing it near the scalp, the ends will wrap around/under the bantu knot. A ponytail holder is not necessary but it will provide better hold.
