5 Black Panther inspired hairstyles you should try

There have been memes and videos, all in celebration of culture and superheroes. We’re in love with everything to do with the movie, especially the hair and outfits. Here are 5 hairstyles from the movie and Hollywood premiere that we think you should try. Warning: Spoiler Alert. Movie Highlights 1. The Wakanda Knot The look we’d give a standing ovation to is the ‘Wakanda Knot’. T’Challa’s love interest Nakia, played by the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o, wore this hairstyle that can easily be achieved off screen. It’s an interesting take on our beloved bantu knots.

Crystal Martin, writer for the New York Times describes the look as: “We’re basically starting with a flat knot. Meaning, we’re taking the hair by sections and twisting it upon itself, twisting it down to what I call a flatter, cinnamon-roll shape.” Image Source: people.com 2. Half-Moon Braids This top knot, accessorised with a single braid, is a look fit for a princess. Shuri, played by Letitia Wright, spent hours getting her hair dyed and her braids weaved in, but it was undeniably worth the wait....

Be careful not to wash your hair more than once a week, so as not to strip your scalp of its natural oils. 2. Moisturise Use a hair food/oil on your hair twice a day and drink of lots of water. You can use Castor, Jojoba or Coconut oils, which can be bought at a local health and beauty shops. By doing this you lock in the moisture for longer. Speaking of oil, if the itch to colour has got you, do it with a shade from the Ultra Gloss range. Each shade is enriched with baobab oil, honey and coconut oil for naturally shiny and healthy-looking hair.     3. Trim your hair With dry weather comes breakage. Be prepared.
