Short Cut Finger Coils

When I first went natural and did the big chop, I did finger coils often. I would actually spend time taking small sections of hair and coiling them around my fingers. Then a week or so later I’ll uncoil them for springy curls. Now I cannot fathom spending that much time on my hair. When I cut my hair last month I immediately searched youtube and pinterst for style ideas. I loved being able to wash and go but I wanted some options for when I wanted to get a little fancy. I was getting ready to start my first week back teaching from the summer and my fade was no longer fresh. I though “how can I have a nice style, without having to take time and money at the barber or hair dresser?” Luckily I stumbled across a video on how to do finger coils in a fraction of the time. Here’s what I did:

  1. Wash hair with sulfate free shampoo. Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo
  2. Condition and detangle hair.  Aussie Moist Conditioner
  3. Deep condition for 30 min-1 hr. (Aussie Moist + EVOO + coconut milk)
  4. After rinsing apply a palm full of EVOO.
  5. Spray hair liberally with water
  6. Rub gel and curling cream into hair (eco-styler/ Cantu coconut curling cream)
  7. Brush hair in circles with a paddle brush (soft side) until coils form
  8. Continue to spray water as needed as use brush your hair.

This process was so simple and the deep conditioning left my hair so soft. After I wore the coils for a few days I uncoiled them for a crinkly curly look. I will do this probably every month in between cuts, when my fade grows out. What other styles do you do with your TWA?
