Finger Coiling?
 
So I was on YouTube, and I came across some videos of girls finger coiling their hair. I LOVE how it looks when they do it. Have any of you tried doing this method? What were your results? I have 3b/3c hair that's course & dry and I really want to know if this will work on my hair.

Omg your hair looks beautiful! Did you use any gel to hold the curls together? Or just a leave-in?

I think 3b/c is the ideal curl pattern for it since out curls are around the size of our finger. I've never done it deliberately as a style all over my head, but I have done it to strategically shape the curls framing my face. It doesn't require any additional product to stay, but gel will always give you more uniform results.

I have 3b/c hair & I'm not sure i could do it because my curls are smaller than but fingers. But I will give it a shot. Jeliah your hair looks gorgeous. It reminds me of a curl form set.

I think I'm gonna give it a try either tomorrow, or on Friday after I wash my hair. I really hope it works, since my hair is pretty coarse. This is how it looks now (it's a bit frizzy because I diffused earlier)

I'll definitely be posting my results though!

Because I'm 3c and not a mix of 3b/c some of my curls are smaller than my larger fingers, but they're not so much smaller I can't finger curl. If that's the case you're probably not 3b/c. Curl size is the main description of curl type. Most people with 3b have curls larger than their fingers.

Ooo I'm really excited. I love your hair. I can't bleach my hair. It's just too fragile.

This particular time I used a curl cream. But I have done it with live in only,But only in the cooler months. I would use gel(I like flaxseed gel) this time of year. Btw I looove your hair. What do you use to color it?

Oh okay. I was thinking of using one of the leave-ins I have, and then adding some of the eco styler gel to it since it doesn't make my hair stiff/hard. Hopefully I have good results.

&& Thank you! I used John Frieda's hair dye in the color Deep Cherry Brown. The color was the same as the box which rarely ever happens (at least for me, haha).

@anissafersure post pic when you do! :-)

My hair is definitely curly. My ringlets diameter is very small. I think it's because my hair is short. I think they will widen as my hair grows.

CurlyJulie81 06-25-2013 02:59 PM

3a/b curls here, and I finger coil the top part of my hair. it helps lift the curls and give them some root volume. I don't have time to do the entire head like the youtube video I've seen, but it looks pretty when she's done. :)

Thanks guys! It took forever to do though, ugh. Anyways, here's how my hair looked after taking all of them apart. I'm so impressed! I didn't expect the curls to be so defined and full! I'm definitely not doing this on a regular basis though, my arms were killing me, haha.
