Hair Trend: How To Do Bantu Knots

Bantu knots are not only a proudly African hairstyle that shows off the continent’s culture and hair styling, but it’s a great protective hairstyle as well as a great way to add volume and curl to your afro.

Historically, Bantu knots were worn by women across the continent, and they are thought to have originated in Southern Africa with the Zulu people. The style is a simple one that requires you to part your shampooed and conditioned hair into sections, twist small strands of hair together and wrap it around to create a knot. Once you unravel and undo the twists, your afro will be curly and have more volume.
