Braids and Bantu knots with African Threading





I decided to change up things a little bit by threading half of her hair in the back. I did individual braids with African threading (I used the weave thread to achieve this).



 I divided the threaded braids, along the middle part, into two sections,
and wound a piece of thread at the base of each section. I then braided the ends into one single braid. The one big braid was twirled around the base and secured with another piece of thread, creating a Bantu Knot.

we have been using castor oil to massage her scalp, that's why you see the new growth in the back
Optional: the bantu knots were accessorized.

Moisturizing:
Prior to styling, her hair was co-washed. The water in her hair was sealed with olive oil. I then sprayed a humectant-based moisturizer (water, aloe vera juice and vegetable glycerin). READ MORE ON EFFECTIVELY SEALING MOISTURE HERE.  I then dried her hair in 6 threaded braids. The next day, I took the threaded braids down and began styling her hair by using a pin tail comb to part her hair.

The threaded braids will last for a week only and they will be replaced with the traditional plaits.
