Bantu knots are a great option for guys with Afro or coarse hair types as the knots work as a protective style for natural hair.
Bantu knots originated from the Zulu people of southern Africa. The hair is sectioned off, twisted, and wrapped in a such a way that the hair stacks upon itself to form a spiralled knot. Before creating this style, ensure hair is nourished with conditioning treatments and use a curl defining cream for hold and protection.

- Bantu knots are a great protective style for Afro or textured hair.
- If you’re creating Banut knots at home use a nourishing shampoo that will keep your scalp and hair well hydrated and moisturised.
- Apply a holding cream onto hair, focusing on the ends. Make sure your strong cream contains oils or moisturising ingredients that will help prevent hair from drying out.
- Section hair into a minimum of four sections, which you can then break down into further sections to create the twists.
- You can use a two-strand method to create your twists, then coil the twists on top of themselves to create the knots.
- Either secure with a hair pin, or tuck your hair in on itself in such a way that ensure the knots stay in place.
