Bantu Perm Query?

April 13, 2021

Hi, I Bantu my hair all the time. I'm wanting to know if I can add perming lotion/process to my Bantu knots to get a permanent Bantu knot look?


Anyone done this before? Anyone professional hairdresser? Any thoughts? Any Bantu queens?

I assume your hair is already curly and you do the Bantu knots yourself. And then you want to add the perm solution to the knots? Adding perm solution to curly hair like this may make it straighter or inconsistently curly in places. It may also damage your hair.

I would definitely talk to your hairdresser but I don't think there is a way to make them permanent. You would have to take them out as they grow and the new growth would have your natural hair texture. So you would need to perm them every couple of months, which will definitely damage your hair.

Good luck and do let us know what you find out.

I would consult with a beauty school, or a local hair dresser. You want someone to look at the condition of your hair before you do anything

I would consult your hair stylist. I honestly don't think it would be a good idea to put strong chemicals on your hair and don't think it would work very well.
