Hair of The Week: Finger Coils

If I had to choose a signature style it would have to be finger coils. I love this style because it makes me feel as if I’m wearing locs but without the commitment. There once was a time when I really wanted locs but now I enjoy being a loose natural.

These coils were done Sunday on damp hair using a leave in conditioner and a mixture of flaxseed gel and shea butter. I followed the recipe posted on Black Hair Media forum, of course tweaking it a bit for my needs. If you are interested in making this custard the recipe can be found here. At night I tie down coils with a du rag (I misplaced my scarf)  and a bonnet (for security) and in the morning mist with homemade spritz.


These pictures were taken on Wednesday morning, coils are holding up really well. They are soft, flexible and swings whenever I shake my head.


If you had to choose a signature style what would it be?

    @Vets If you try it I would love to see how it turns out.

    @Jen I plan on doing a coil out next week. Not sure how its going to turn out now that my hair is a little longer. Hope it will turn out ok *fingers crossed*
