Default 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)

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).

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.

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.
