How To Start Finger Coils With A Brush

Finger Coils can be time consuming. But I've discovered a simple hack to shorten the installation time. Simply start them with a brush.
Finger Coils TWA Teeny Weeny Afro

My current favorite way to style my natural hair is in 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. The thing is, it’s a time consuming style. Especially when you’re busy and can’t dedicate too much time to styling your hair. But I’ve discovered a simple hack to shorten the amount of time it takes to do finger coils. I start my coils with a brush.

I wash, condition and moisturize my hair. Then use a brush to start my coils. Next I go through my hair in sections to separate and define the coils. To maintain the style, I moisturize with a leave in conditioner and seal with oil every other day. The coils stay put for a few weeks until I’m ready to wash my hair again. Sometimes I even pull the coils apart and do a coil-out for a different look. So you’re actually getting two styles in one. That’s a win in my book.

This method will make your life easier and allow you to do better things with your time. Like go out and show off your new, cute hairstyle. Watch my Finger Coils On 4C TWA Tutorial for a step-by-step on how to start finger coils with a brush.

  1. 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 🙂
