Finger Coils

I decided to try a style I have been drooling over forever - finger coils. I saw so many pics of naturals wearing them in blogs and albums and always said I would give them a try one day and finally did them myself.

I decided to use KCurly's (of Newly Natural) technique - check out her tutorial here. I love the way hers turn out. Instead of using gel I decided to use Curls Nurture Cream from Boutique de Fleurzty. I did them on freshly washed hair (I actually did an avocado/coconut milk deep condition as well - pics coming soon). After I washed my hair I added the Curls Nurture Creme and a little Hydrating Hair Butter.



I started from the back and worked my way up using KCurly's finger coil technique. As I got to the middle of my head, my hair began to dry and I just re-wet and added a dab of the Nurture Cream to each section. It took about 4 hours to complete - and KCurly is right about one thing you need lots of patience because I had to do several over because I was getting tired and starting doing them all types of sizes and ended up having to redo some.
Check out my results...

Looks a little flat to me - but I'm sure they will plump-up overtime. KCurly rinses hers and separates for a coil-out and I may try that as well.
Side view...

Back - I like that there aren't too many spaces.
The combo of using the Curls Nurture Cream and Hydrating Hair Butter worked so well, when my hair dried it stayed really shiny, soft and movable not at all hard or sticky :o)
Well, that's it for now. I will return with more product reviews and pics.
Peace and Blessings...

Your coils look great. For some reason, I just can't reach the back of my head to do them. I've had them done by a friend and loved them.

Wow, very cute and very tedious! I wouldn't have the heart to try this on myself (patience!) but yours certainly look worth the effort.

Hi Lady, How are you? I`am still peeping your blog! I just have been so busy with my new position at work! Your coils are so beautiful! They looked locked in one of the pix! May God continue to give you the wisdom to share and teach us!

Lovely! This morning I just cut off all but about 1/2 inches of my hair.

Best, Kyra
