|First time I did Bantu Knots on my whole head.|
|Bantu knot out.|
Now, let me tell you that sleeping on Bantu knots is not comfortable! I slept as best as I could and when I woke up Sunday morning I started to take the knots out. I started to pull the knots apart and I watched my hair get bigger and bigger. The volume of this Bantu knot out is awesome! I'm talking big hair, but most of the ends aren't frizzy. I have these cute coils on the ends of my hair and this serious volume everywhere else.
I wore this look to church today. It rained this morning and I knew it would be humid, so I rolled tucked my bangs and pinned them back with a flower. I know y'all are shocked that I wore a flower! Well my lady friends at church kinda gave me strange looks this morning. One of them is a stylist and I know she was thinking "she needs to comb that hair!". I told them that this was an intentional look and that I love it! You know when your with people who don't like your look. Y'all feeling me! That fake smile and head nod they give you and then someone quickly changes the subject. I knew they were all thinking I'm crazy to wear my hair (in public) like this, but I like this look! I want to wear it to school/work! The volume is unbelievable and I know that as my hair gets longer this look will evolve. I'm loving my big hair and I'm comfortable with myself to rock a look that many people wouldn't be caught in public wearing. This is me embracing my hair and running with a unique look that can only really happen with tightly curly hair. This is a real journey moment for me. A year and a half ago I would of been horrified to wear my hair like this in public. This is me embracing beauty through different lens and not just accepting who I am, but really embracing that person. The journey continues. Until next time...
