Throwback Thursday to the results of my Bantu knot out. Video up on my page.
What’s a style you’ve tried that you were surprised it turned out well ? &/or what’s the song you play when you know you look good ?
kill me I dare you.
lol jk I was just trying to be a bad ass bitch pls don’t hurt me i luh you. .
Also- what does being a bad ass bitch mean you to you? Is it the thrill of curating your own chaos or is it the serenity of destroying someone else’s? Is it the joy of making another smile or smiling yourself... perhaps in beteeen there is gray area between both where true bad ass-edry lies. .
I’ll meet you bad ass bitches there (: and you bad ass batches! Which is now what I’m calling the male version of bitches :3

✧ In a time and space where everyone is cultivating their online identity, it's of utmost importance that we remember to focus on loving, cherishing, nurturing, and cultivating our physical selves as well. ✧ Sometimes, we feel like we have to be on the same wave-length as those around us or those we follow. Like spending $$ to go on #hotgirlsummer clothes or go out with your friends with the $$ you were saving to start up your online bakery or invest in stocks with @stash_app ☒ But that's just the hype ☒ ✧ I don't mean don't enjoy yourselves! Have a FANTASTIC summer! But have one that is not only perfect for your image, but perfect for your heart as well. ✧ Find those things you yourself wants to do. For you, and for your future. ✧ You can support; ride with; and be happy for others while STILL doing you, and following your own dreams. Your friends will root you on! ✧ Even if your goals don't look the same as everyone else's, your dreams are JUST AS important to go after. ✧ Love on you. One way I found to love me, is by creating space for me. ~❧ Amawi

Bantu knots also known as Zulu knots are created when the hair is sectioned off and twisted into knots. The shapes of the sections depend on how the hair is parted, and can easily be made into diamond, triangle or square shapes, but the possibilities are endless. This hairstyle can be worn on any hair type and any hair length, although it is popular amongst people of African descent. Bantu knots are a way to wear the hair so it is protected form the elements and close to the scalps beneficial oils. Follow these steps to fashion beautiful Bantu knots of your own.
1. Detangle your Hair
This style requires smooth detangled hair. Wash and condition your hair beforehand if you have a lot of tangles to work out. Use shea butter on your hair before creating this style for soft and shiny hair that is easy to manage.
2. Part your Hair into Sections
Parting the hair into 1 x 1 inch sections is a popular size, but there are no rules. Try larger sections for longer hair. Be creative with the shape of your parts. Start with a diagonal part to make triangle or diamond shaped styles, and start with a part at the nape of your neck for a symmetrical shape. The larger you make the section, the larger the knot will be.
3. Twist Hair and Fashion it into a Knot
Working with one section at a time, take your hair and twist it. Spritz water from a spray bottle on each section as you go, or use gel or hair oil for shine. Twist the hair firmly. Consider braiding your hair, or double twisting the section before making your knot for a textured look to your knot.
4. Fashion Hair into a Bantu Knot
Take the twist and wrap it around itself in a circular fashion to form what looks like a knot. Do not actually knot your hair because it may be difficult to get the knot out. If you have hair extensions or dread locks, simply divide your sections by how big you want your knot to be, and twist your locks into a knot.
5. Secure your Hair
Tuck the hair under itself or use a cloth hair tie or hair rubber band to secure each Bantu knot. Do not use a tie that is too tight because it could break your hair.
