Summer Hairstyle - Bantu Knot Crown


Any other curly girls out there thinking of ways to style their hair this summer? Summertime is approaching and for most of us, this is the time of year where we like spicing up our hairstyles most. This Bantu knot crown hairstyle is perfect for the summer. I personally love half up half down styles because although I like wearing my hair out, I don't always want the front down in my face. Anyone else like this? So adding a simple detail like small bantu knots, really spices up a wash and go. See video above of how I achieved this look.

So I've partnered up with Jane Carter Solution to create this super cute summer hairstyle using their 'Curls To Go' line. This line helped moisturize and define my hair, making this style come out exactly how I envisioned it. Not to mention, it smells SO GOOD! And I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for yummy smelling products.


What I really love about the Curls To Go line is that there's a product for every step in my wash day routine.


Cleanse:

  • Curl Drench Cleansing Co Wash - This cowash is a shampoo alternative. Meant to gently cleanse the scalp without stripping your hair while adding moisture at the same time. Most of you may know that I'm more of a shampoo girl, but this cowash was really good at making my hair feel clean but still soft and manageable.

Condition/Detangle:

  • Untangle Me Weightless Leave In - I really love a lightweight leave in conditioner that still delivers maximum moisture. This leave in made it easy to further detangle my hair while reducing frizz.

Cream/Styler:

  • Curl Cocktail Conditioning Cream - Curl creams are my absolute favorite product in my routine! It's creamy consistency really moisturized my hair and helped define my curls. The perfect cream for a wash and go style.

Gel/Styler:

  • Coiling All Curls Elongating Gel - On top of my styling creams, I like to add some gel for extra definition and hold. Especially in the summer when I'm trying to combat the humidity. This gel helped elongate my curls and gave it a light hold that would allow my curls to remain bouncy and springy.

Shine/Seal:

  • Shine On Curl Elixir - I always like to seal in the moisture with an oil. It also provides additional shine and smooths down any frizz.

Refresher/Maintenance:

  • Mist Me Over Curl Hydrator - I love using a curl refresher each morning to fluff out my hair after being in my bonnet over night. This is a great way to reactivate your curls and add hydration to your hair throughout the week. This is a great way to keep your hair from drying out.

This line will be my summertime go to line. If you haven't tried it yet, be sure to check out Sally Beauty as they're having a buy one, get one 50% off sale!



The curl cocktail and elongating gel are my two faves. Perfect for a wash and go!
