Hair Of The Day: BANTU KNOTS (11.25.12) I'm obsessed with bantu knots at the moment. I'm not always looking for super tight curls or lots of definition, so this technique that I've perfected is working well for me. I use the Tropical Roots Twist Cream to redo them in big chunky knots at night time and unravel them in the mornings. I never thought the day would come when I'd walk and my hair would bounce like the women in commercials, but it's happening and I'm in love.
