Please help me do my hair.

I have no idea how to d my natural hair. The only thing i do is wash it and then put it in 8 braids until it dries and then undo them and put my hair in a bun. I want a change! I want to learn how to do twist outs, flat twists, and finger coils. Ive been watching a bunch of youtube videos. Does anyone have any tips for me?

How many sections should I do?

KCCC takes a long time to dry on my hair. Before I go to bed, I sit under the dryer for about 15 minutes and go to bed. In the morning I untwist, fluff and spray a little care free curl gold spray on my hair. I throw on a headband and go!

I have tried finger coils or a coil-out yet.

When it comes to braidouts, coilouts and twistouts the amount of sections you should do depends on how loose you want the resultant curl/wave pattern to be; less is looser.

Braidouts tend to give waves and crimps or looser S curls, twists give tighter s curls and coils give spirals. Of course that also depends on you hair's natural pattern which will still express itself somewhat through the style.

Some people put rubber bands coated in oil or butter at the roots to keep them from puffing up. Instead of stressing the hair to remove the bands they just cut them off. I've yet to try this method myself, though.

I prefer to do all these styles on dry hair as it tends to come out more predictably; on wet hair it can shrink in a non-uniform way and the products might not be applied evenly but there's no way of knowing until it dries.
Okay I made my first attempt last night. There are pics in my fotki if anyone wants to see it.

I used to do twist-outs a lot. Since my hair is only about 4-5in, I would make a lot of small sections. I would use a lot of conditioner as a base layer, it really defines my 4a/b hair and is a good protecting layer if I decide to use gel. Smoothing while twisting helps alot. I usually use a layer of conditioner, a layer of a moisturizing cream, and some kind of defining cream. If i remember I smooth oil to the finished twist to lock in the moisture. It comes out really fluffy & defined, and when it gets old I may wet a little and smooth gel(mixed with jojoba oil) to the TO make it look a little different. The oil in the gel keeps my hair moist all day. I've only tried finger coils once, I literally just twirled my hair around with my finger. I used gel with that, and once it dried the next day I just seperated the coils.
