Youtube Tuesday

Happy Tuesday! Today is another beauty day. A sorority sister of mine showed me how to knot my hair in Bantu Knots to get these amazing little heatless ringlet curls. If you do the knots the correctly, it’s a beautiful hairstyle to wear as well!

A really great article on Ebony.com goes into detail more about the history behind Bantu Knots as well as the health benefits it can have on your hair!

“Bantu knots made a comeback in recent years with celebrities such as Mel B. a.k.a. Scary Spice, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Rihanna, Blac Chyna, and Teyana Taylor stunning the masses. These women and plenty of others slayed Bantu knots, helping to bring them to the forefront. However, the hairstyle can be traced as far back to at least 1898.

“Bantu” is a blanket term used to describe the 300 to 600 ethnic groups within southern Africa. There’s no standard language, but interestingly enough, “Bantu,” which means “people,” remains consistent across the different groups.

“Bantu knots also are known as Zulu knots because the Zulu people, a Bantu ethnic group, are the originators of the look we love and wear today,” says NaturallyCurly Branded Content Editor Gerilyn Hayes.

“This ancestral and cultural tether is striking in its eons-old manifestation of togetherness,” Hayes continues. “Bantu knots are a visual reminder of the origins of humanity, which may intrinsically be a key to their charm.”
