I consider this to be one of the most unique natural hairstyles that I do. I don’t really see many people rocking this style, at least in my area. So if you’re looking for a style that’s cute, edgy, and protective, bantu knots or “Chinee bumps” (as we call them in Jamaica) are for you.
Time: 30 mins. to wash, condition, and detangle, 1.5 hours to set hair in Bantu knots
Products/ Tools Used: Parnevu Leave-In, Ecostyler Clear Gel, rat-tail comb to part, metal clips to hold back sections of hair
Lasts: Foreva! Seriously, this could hold up quite nicely for 4 weeks, if you wanted it to. However, I have an incurable disease that prohibits me from wearing a style for longer than one week…:D Careful, it’s contagious.
Reactions You’ll Get: People will have so many different reactions to this unique hairstyle. Prepare to be asked if you’ve cut your hair. Prepare to get looks of amazement, like, “What’s going on, exactly?” Prepare to get some guffaws of ridicule from people who don’t find it cute-this happened to me on the bus. Seriously.
My bottom line: I LOVE this hairstyle, it’s MY HAIR and that’s all that matters. Ciao!
