Now we need to make small sections of hair. The more sections, the more Bantu knots. In my opinion the more the better, but everyone has their own preferences that is why I won’t tell you how many sections you need.
Use again the big teeth comb for the job to separate the sections. The longer the hair the bigger the sections can be. If your hair is not really long you will have to do many small knots.
Also keep in mind, if you want the knot-out hairstyle as well, the smaller the sections, with more twists the curler your hair will be when you remove the knots.
You will need a hair cream (Hidrating cream or a special curl cream), but be sure not to use a cream that hardens your hair, since then you will not be able to make the curls in time. You will need to apply the cream in every section of hair separately, do not apply on all the hair at once, always apply only on the section you are working with.
After you begin twisting your hair, always start from the rood and go towards the tip and do a constant twist so it will be the same twist everywhere.
Begin twisting a small snake shape at the scalp level as shown in the picture. When doing this you will twist the section on its own one more time as well but make sure you do not over-twist. I am sure you will know when you are overtwisting since it will hurt.
Leave the tip of the section out (the one you were holding to do the job) since that part will be simply placed without a twist on the coil.
The hair tip that remain will be wrapped around the section shown below.
The tip of the section must be really close to your scalp, since this will mainly hold all this together.
If the knots feel loose to you, you can use hair pins to hold it together. If done correctly its own structure should keep it together without any additional help.
Now the one of the knots is done, proceed with the remaining hair. Each section needs to be done the same way, you will need a lot of patience to do this, so if you are not a patient person just give up after the first sections since by now you can see how much time it requires.
Now go out and impress some friends with your new hairstyle 🙂
