The Design Essentials Natural Coconut & Monoi Collection is geared toward dull, dry, thirsty hair. The products are infused with Coconut Oil, Monoi Oil and nourishing botanicals to deliver intense hydration. As a result, hair is given new life and transforms into soft, shiny curls. I used the collection this past weekend to create one of my favorite hairstyles- the Finger Coil Out Fauxhawk.
A creamy cleanser that removes build up and impurities from the hair and scalp while restoring moisture balance and curl definition. The sulfate free shampoo leaves hair squeaky clean yet moisturized.
Energizes waves, curls and coils with body and shine. The 2 in 1 formula with Sunflower and Marula Oil locks in moisture for damage protection. While conditioning agents restore softness and strength. It can be used daily either as a moisturizer or curl refresher.
Moisturizes curls and tames frizz with daily use. Sunflower, Milk Protein & Chamomile revitalizes curls with a triple hydrating Monoi Moisture Blend. While lightweight silk proteins and a replenishing blend of active botanicals restore over-worked curls.
First I washed my hair with the Coconut Milk Nourishing Shampoo. Since my hair was in need of a deep conditioning treatment, I applied the SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner. I put on a plastic cap and let the conditioner sit for a few hours while I did some things around the house. After washing out the conditioner I sprayed on a generous amount of the Coconut Milk Leave In Moisturizer. Because my hair is really dry I also applied the Curl Enhancing Dual Hydration Milk for extra moisture. I used SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Souffle in addition to Eco Styler Olive Oil Gel to do my Finger Coils. Next I allowed the Finger Coils to air dry overnight. Finally, I took them apart with the Fantasia IC Coconut Oil Hair Polisher.
My hair turned out amazing. To maintain the style I spray my hair with the Coconut Water Curl Refresher every few days to add moisture. Other than that, I sleep with a satin bonnet to protect the style. In the morning I lift my roots with a pick, fluff my hair and reshape with my hands. Check out the tutorial below to see how to create the Fauxhawk. You’ll also get a step by step visual to help you to recreate the style.
