First Time Finger Coils on My Natural Hair

Finger coils are nothing new but they certainly are new for me.

I’ve been natural for about 8 years and in the time that I’ve been natural, I’ve only just started embracing my natural texture as of the last two 1/2 years. Prior to discovering the Kim Coles Grow Out Challenge sponsored by Curly Nikki and Naturally Curly back in 2011 , I just flat ironed my hair on a regular basis.

Now that I’m embracing my natural texture and no longer heat styling, I’m rediscovering all of the various ways I can style my hair. One of those ways is finger coiling.

    1. Gurrrrrrrl having gone through a product junky phase I have it LOL. I bought it and used it like twice. Ok so I’ll try it when I do the coils. Thank for letting me know!

  1. “I’ll be back to post only if it turns out well”…

    Keepin it 100 I see lol

    I used to coil my friend’s hair and it always turned out nice….not a lot of shrinkage, either.

    I’m so sorry this post is gonna sound pointless, but I can’t think of the name of the product o_0

    I thought it was Jamaican Mango & LIme but I’m getting it confused. Ugh. It came in a huge tub with a blue and white label.
    It was quite popular some years back but I haven’t heard much about it lately.
