I've been intrigued by bantu knots for a while now, but never thought I could achieve a cute look due to my length. So last night I was watching TV and decided to try something new. Starting with dry hair (I washed my hair and styled with Knot Today and KCC on Sunday), I lightly sprayed my hair with a water/aloe vera oil spritz and proceeded to make little bantu knots all over my head. I secured the ends with bobby pins and went to sleep.
I woke up this morning with a cute, curly fro! I will have to try this on wet hair and make a video about it.

Since I got more of a cut, rather than a trim last weekend, I was nervous to wash my hair and wear it curly, but I was too excited to care. In my last post, I mentioned my current issue with central scarring alopecia. Well I am happy to report that while I was combing my deep conditioner through my hair last night, I literally only lost a few strands of hair. Months ago, I was losing clumps of hair, and was honestly scared to wash my hair, let alone come through it. I attribute the minimized hair loss keeping the faith, the regimen and scalp injections my dermatologist prescribed, and the great trim I got last week.
I had an appointment with my dermatologist this morning. Nothing good or bad to report. I received 7 more Kenalog scalp injections. I am scheduled to go back in June for another round.
My hair is definitely shorter, but my curl pattern is much more defined since I lost the raggedy ends and I love my new rich, chocolate brown color. The first picture shows the length in the back; you can definitely tell it's shorter. And hopefully in the second picture you can see the curl definition some. I am still using the Kinky Curly product line and don't plan on straying from my current routine.
