However, these knots work well with just about all hair types. They are not actually knots! Instead, they are small, coiled buns secured against the side of the head. Regardless, if you uncoil your Bantu knots after you’ve sported them, you can create a second, curly hairstyle known as a Bantu knot-out.
They are made by twisting your hair around itself until it forms a knot. The style can be used as protective style for both natural and relaxed hair. ‘Bantu’ is an all-encompassing term used to describe the 300 to 600 ethnic groups within southern Africa that spoke the Bantu language, according to the South Africa History Organization (SAHO).

1- Preparing Hair
Shampoo the hair with a sulfate-free shampoo. Your scalp needs to be very clean since Bantu knots leave a large portion of it exposed. If you have too much product buildup, grime, and flaky skin on your scalp, the style can become itchy and lose some of its glamour.
You do not need to use any special shampoo for this task, but using a sulfate-free option will help reduce frizz. Simply use the same hair care products you always use when shampooing your hair.
