Bantu Knots:Best Black Girl Hairstyles Ever!

Bantu Knot is a traditional African hairstyle that’s been around for some years now. The dazzling hairstyle has been reinvented in recent times and fashionable ladies, especially those rocking their natural hair have embraced this hair style with so much gusto.

Bantu has been sported by African women of certain cultural group with a fierce representation of boldness displayed within the community to rock hair in its absolute natural state.

Bantu Knots happens when your hair is twisted around itself until it forms a knot that resembles a stack of tires. It is a protective style for both natural and relaxed hair. They are commonly used in overnight routines to preserve longer lasting and defined curly styles.

Your hair could be straight, curly, wavy, and super curly and it will still hold and be beautiful. For some, it’ll create looser waves, and for others it will have a cute “large curly q” springy curls effect.

The strength of the Bantu knots actually lies in the patterns that are created on the scalp for the knots. Those patterns can be so sophisticated and beautiful when nicely done.

Bantu doesn’t take a ton of tools to do it and doesn’t require so much money either. Lets look at some celebrities who have rocked this lovely hair style “be it Bantu Knots or Mini Buns” in the past:
