New Bantu Knot Set - Getting Bored

I was getting a little bored with my braid outs, and revisited my Bantu Knots. This time I did it a little differently. The last time I tried the knots, I only twisted them as I was making the knots. This time I did a 2 strand twist before I wrapped the knots. I've been rocking my Bantus for 4 days now (much to my husband's chagrin), and I will be untwisting tomorrow hopefully to take me through to Christmas (wishful thinking?). I've kept my scalp oiled every other night with my silk scarf on to sleep and under my hats (um, it's fricken cold out!), and I really hope this turns out ok.

It's been 6 months since my last perm and I'm dying to take a blow dryer and flat iron to my head and rock my length, but I know it's too soon to give my head any heat. I do all of my styling wet and then sit under the dryer. But I'm missing running my fingers through my hair, it's not the same when I comb out my braid-outs and my flattened and straight tresses.

Sigh...but at least I haven't had any urge whatsoever to do the BC!!! Whew. As long as my new growth keeps coming, I'm praying I'll never have to cut anything but dead ends!!!

I love it! I love the earrings too. I used to have a pair like that, but they broke and I haven't worn earrings since. Sad, but true.

I'm so proud of your self control to keep yourself from doing the BC! I do miss how it feels to have the wind blow through my hair and to run my fingers through my hair. But my hair is sooo much healthier now so I can't complain.
