Finger coils are great if you are in between hair lengths or just looking for a cute, low-maintenance hair style. Yes, this hair style is time consuming, but it lasts a long time.

  1. Apply leave in conditioner to wet hair.

  2. Work in small sections! Start by applying gel or styling custard to a small section of wet hair.

  3. Run fingers down the hair shaft repeatedly until your hair naturally separates OR use a denman brush to attain the same results.

  4. Use a denman brush to gently detangle the hair and distribute the product. Comb until the hair is smooth and naturally separates.

  5. Twirl each individual separation around your finger until it’s tightly spiraled.

  6. Repeat steps 1-5 on the rest of your hair

  7. To speed up the drying process, use a hair dryer diffuser, or use a t-shirt to squeeze excess water from the hair.

  8. Add oil to your curls to lock in the moisture.

  9. To add volume to your hair, separate the curls once they are dry.

Optional: Instead of finger coiling the natural separations of your hair, you can create bigger sections to finger coil.

Optional: Instead of using gel or styling custard, use leave in conditioner to coil wet hair. This method does not work for all hair textures.
