Bantu Knots also known as Chiney Bumps. I’m not sure why they call it that but I grew up with that name. After a hair wash day when I was a child I use to hate getting Bantu Knots but now; I have learned how to embrace my natural hair and rock any hairstyle that I desire. I prefer to do Bantu knots on freshly washed hair as it gives my hair a more defined curl after I loose it out.
Your hair is a very delicate part of you that needs a lot of care and attention. Forget about the different ways you can style or colour your hair, your first thought should be on giving it the love it deserves. If you fail to look after your hair, that’s when you see problems like hair loss, weak hair, dandruff, and all kinds of other stuff too. So, if you’re interested in truly caring for your hair, then here’s the only hair care advice you need.
(The Good & The Bad)
Most individuals with natural hair are aware that having natural hair can be both a good thing as well as a bad thing. It can be wonderful some days and it can be challenging other days.
“Beware of her fair hair, for she excels all women in the magic of her locks;
And when she winds them round a young man’s neck, she will not ever set him free again.”
Goethe certainly recognized how powerful a woman’s hair can be. And it’s reasonable to assume this attractive lady nurtured her hair with great love. Although women generally take good care of their locks, sometimes mistakes which sneak their way into our daily routine can make your hair appear less than perfect.
It doesn’t matter whether your festive work function is a couple of drinks down at the local drinking establishment, a full-blown three-course meal at a gourmet restaurant or a hired hall and a disco down the road, you still want to look your best. You’ve selected your dress, your little kitten heels are good to go, and you’ve decided on the palette for your makeup. Red, of course! Now, it’s time to decide how you’re going to wear your hair. You’re in the ultimate dilemma – up or down, wavy or straight, bangs or curls. Take a look at these ideas that will help you finalize your Christmas party look.
When products are being applied daily to the natural hair there is a high risk of product build-up on the scalp and natural hair shaft. The products that we use to moisturize, condition and style create these build-ups which later leave our hair looking dull, feeling weighed down and make it even harder to style.
This also prevents products from penetrating the hair cuticles and cause dryness which leads to hair breakage from product build-up.
Curl control, laid edges every naturalistas desire. While the edges might stand curly; there are a few products and hair care fixes that can address these issues and slick your edges in no time. I have 4b/4c, coarse textured hair. My edges are often times mischevious and tend to be more curly than straight. Keeping these edges done is an all-day fight with my hairline.
