Finger Coils on TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro) Tutorial

Finger Coils Tutorial

My current favorite hairstyle is finger coils. It serves as the perfect protective style for the teeny weeny afro stage when your hair may still be too short for braids, twists and other protective styles that require a few inches of hair. I usually wash, condition, moisturize and do my coils on Sunday, and then moisturize with a leave in conditioner and seal with oil every other day. They last for an entire week. And the last few days I pull them apart for the coily fro look. Check out my tutorial…

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

    Wow. Just wow. I’ve been natural for almost 15 years. I have big, voluminous, natural hair. But if I thought that my hair would look even remotely like your’s, I’d cut it all off in a heartbeat. Everything, from the lippie to the makeup to the hair = fabulous! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hi Erica, can you do a review of the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place foundation? Thanks

      Hi Peta. I don’t have that one but I’ll try to get samples from Sephora for review.

    Love your hair. I just cut my Locs off and I want to learn how to coil. Do you have a salon.

    Do you wear a scarf at night after you do your coils?
