Default Finger Coil Fail...

Today I tried finger coiling my hair because I wanted to try something new. Results: too fluffy to stay coiled

I tried several different products and non of them made my hair right enough to coil. I also tried blow drying my hair thinking that maybe it was just too wet.

Products I tried:
-Eco Styler Olive Oil Gel
-Cantu Shea Butter Leave in conditioning repair cream
-My own shea butter mixture made with shea butter & various oils

Products I own but didn't try (because when i've used them in the past they left a white residue):
-Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
-Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk

I don't know what it'll take to make my hair not fluff up so that it will stay coiled.

I also own Design Essentials Natural Defining Creme Gel but haven't tried it for finger coils. Any other suggestions?

My friend just asked me this question yesterday on how i get it so neat. I told her that to ensure your hair is damp, take SMALL sections that is really important and to not be hesitant with gel. Thats all I have.

Finger coils are usually my go to style. I just use my tresemme Nat as my leave in and use Shea moisture ces for coiling. Oh yeah before the ces I will apply a light oil. I allow them to air dry completely which most times takes all day (the white residue will go away for me as it dries) and sometimes I will pull them apart and do a coil out.

Oh yeah and I always coil my hair wet. Soaking wet hair works best for me

Generally I disagree with recommending products (I prefer ingredient recs) because we're all so different...but I'll break my rules just this once. Lol. There's a natural boutique in my area that also does natural hair, they have pics showing the products they used to achieve certain styles. They make all their finger coils with:

Komaza Coconut Hair Pudding and/or Komaza Califia Care Styling Pudding

The ingredients don't look particularly bothersome, but do check them in case you dislike something...the Califia has protein (the other doesn't) in case that affects you.

I attached a pic of the start of one of their finger coils. (I blurred the face a bit as this isn't me)

Thank you ladies!

I'm going to give it another try in about a week or two when it's time for me to wash my hair again. Since it wasn't working I ended up blow drying my hair and I refuse to wet it again lol. I'm starting to think that using a comb to start my coils might help me keep it from fluffing back up. But nonetheless I will try, try again.

After my hair got longer (maybe 3-4 inches stretched), I couldnt get my finger coils to look right. Think puffy roots with a cute coil on the end : /. Not the look I was going for, LOL. I've found that if I use gel (I use Eco Olive) with the small curl perm rods (little blue ones) it gives me the same look. I style on wet hair & sit under the hood dryer for a bit. Take down when comletely dry. This style lasts me weeks. Just something else to try, Good luck!
