Natural Bride: Tafakari

Avatar • Sep 24, 2009

The style is a bantu knot-out that kept very well throughout the intense Florida humidity. The bantu knots themselves were done earlier in the week (Tuesday) for my Saturday wedding, so it was incredibly easy for my bridal party to help take them down. Instantly styled hair! 

My wedding day was on August 29, 2009 and the day was a blast; the weather cooperated and provided us with postcard backgrounds; my hair did not fluff into an Insta-Fro, and the ceremony turned out beautifully. 🙂 The imperfectly planned perfect wedding.

The style is credited to Mujaira at Afrodisiac Salon and Spa in Atlanta, Georgia. The photos are credited to Zekeshem Parsons, Celebrations of Tampa Bay, Inc.” ~Tafakari (www.blackademianut.blogspot.com)

OMG! You look stunning! Absolutely gorgeous. God bless you both. As for your hair, how the heck did you get it to hold up in the humidity? I live in Florida as well (Miami) and I’ll leave my house with a well defined bantu knot out and by the time I get to work, the humidity turns in into a frizzy mess. You must have a secret. Share! :o)

thanks everybody! @ Kweenie, I got my hair salon colored about 5 months ago, it’s a Paul Mitchell color *can’t remember the exactly name/number.

@ E_v, to be honest, my hair did frizz up a little bit in the back, but not crazily noticeable. I think because it had been wound up SO tightly (too tight, for real) for 3–4 days, it kept pretty well.
