How To | Quick & Easy Natural Hair Style, 2 Ways

3WayStyleI love protective styling; it’s much more suited to my keep it simple, sista (KISS) lifestyle. Additionally, I believe it helps keep single strand knots at bay, as well as to retain length and moisture. For this week’s look, I modified and simplified my Roll and Tuck style, which I wore for most of my transition to natural hair. The pictorial above shows how I recycled a style for two different looks!

I’m feeling adventurous! I love the curly coif that results from bantu knots! After gawking at Naturals who have mastered the Bantu Knot Out technique, I decided to try it myself.

There are two basic ways you can create bantu knots:

  1. Using a Two Strand Twist and
  2. Twisting the length of the hair strand and coiling the hair around itself

This week, I’ll be experimenting using two strand twists and next week I’ll try the single twist method.
