Fall Protective Styling Choice: Finger Coils

Good afternoon my naturals!
Today, I finger coiled my hair. They took about 4 1/2 hours to complete, which is a lot less than my normal 6-7 hours lol. When I create the coils, I usually do them by parting the sections with my finger. This time, I parted my hair from ear to ear. Then I parted the sections of my hair in small rows. This technique cut down the time. I also stood in the mirror the whole time instead of sitting on the couch lol. I applied water, leave in conditioner, Shea Butter mixed with Olive Oil, and Eco Styler Gel and twisted the hair between my thumb and index finger. The last time that I've created these was the beginning of August. My hair has grown a lot. I had a bit of difficulty twisting my ends because I have not adjusted to doing finger coils with my current length.I may keep the finger coils in for a week and a half.
All Done! Thank God!


  1. Looks lovely! I remember when I first started finger coiling my hair, it would take me about 4.5 hours but now I'm down to a tad bit less than 2 hrs!! Makes me want to try coiling my hair again, I haven't done coils in months! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I tried to finger coil my hair, but I couldn't get the coils to be consistent. Yours look good.

  3. @Kiki, thank you! I'm going to keep working until I get to where you are :-)
    @JenJen, thank you! Mine didn't look so hot when I first started doing them. But I guess practice makes perfect.
