My First Sets Of Bantu Knots

I was looking for new ways to style my hair, and my friend, Henrietta Nonye Anuforo suggested Bantu knots to me and I decided to make it although I was sceptical at first. I agreed when she told me she will make it. Nonye is very creative and she is someone I can trust with my hair. I washed my hair, deep conditioned it, moisturized and sealed it. She sectioned it randomly because she wanted to create a full look and I will be rocking the knots out not the Bantu knots itself.

The next day, another friend of mine Divine, who loved the knots outs made another Bantu knots following Nonye’s sectioning. She detangled each knot out and remade it.
