a bunch of tiny coils - UPDATE below

i finally got around to doing a bunch of tiny coils. i cowashed and then little by little took a piece of hair, combed it w/ a fine tooth comb then applied some fantasia get and twirled it in my fingers. i like my coils but it took me 3 hours!!!! this is why i don't like to do it weekly! i hope as my hair gets longer i can do fewer twists and get a nice effect. i'll leave the coils in until they look ratty then have a twist out.

masscurly thanks for suggesting the style....i'd always done 2 strand twists in the past but you're right w/ my length it looks the same w/ single strand twists and it was quicker (even though it still took a while).

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
Hi luvmylocs,

I agree, the twists are pretty cool.

Do you have problems with your hair tangling? I tried to do twists when I first took out my braids, but my hair started loc'ing on me.
YES WE CAN!

PW: natural
thanks ladies!!

well my hair will loc but it's well conditioned and i won't leave my twists in too long so i don't think it will loc. i'm going to try to take pics every day to keep track of how it looks. i haven't had any tangling issues (knock on wood).

ewwww..UPDATE!

i rinsed my hair w/ the gel in it to "loosen" the coils....and it is totally gross! now i'm gonna use my curlicious curls cleansing cream and hopefully i won't have to use shampoo....when i used a light conditioner to twist the last time the results were better as the curls "loosened"
