Step 1: On clean, detangled hair. Part your hair into sections.
Step 2 – 3: For each Bantu knot, apply a small amount water or a water-based spritz. Apply a conditioner/moisturiser/curling custard. We used Aunt Jackie’s Curl la la. Available at Clicks.
Step 4 – 5: Apply your choice of sealant, we used Umera’s Jamaican black castor oil. Detangle your hair some more.
Step 6: Take two parts of the hair. Twist each strand clockwise and create a two strand twist.
Step 7: Twist the two-strand twist into a knot. Secure the knot with a hair band, wool or bobby pin.
Wear them as an overnight protective hairstyle for a well-behaved afro in the morning, or wear them for a few days for more define curls. When you take them out enjoy your curled popping Afro.
