We recently posted this photo of a NaturallyCurly community member on our Facebook page and the response was phenomenal! Over seven thousand of you liked it so we thought we’d take a closer look at the hairstyle that was getting so much attention. 

Finger coils are ideal for people who like wearing loose styles and want low nighttime maintenance. If you think your hair is too fragile for protective styles, then this is a great option if you want to wear your hair loose and reduce manipulation. This style can last anywhere from 2-4 weeks depending on your texture and length. Looser textures with longer hair may be able to wear the style for two weeks and then wear a coil out for two more weeks. Tighter textures with longer hair may have to restrict this style to two weeks to avoid tangling and matting. If you want the best experience, review these tips before installing finger coils. 

Before Creating Finger Coils

  • Create them in the morning to prevent matting and flattening the coils overnight while they are wet or damp.
  • Make sure your hair is completely saturated with water while installing. This will prevent frizz.
  • A simple spritz of water will revive them in the morning. Fluffing is not necessary.
  • It is essential to unravel them with your fingers from ends to roots on wash day. Saturating your hair with water and immediately detangling can cause severe matting and knots.

What You Need


  1. Apply the Carol’s Daughter Lisa’s Hair Elixir Fortifying Scalp Spray directly to the scalp and exfoliate your scalp with the vibrating shampoo brush.
  2. Saturate the hair with the Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer, detangle, cover with the plastic processing cap, and allow it to set for 20 min. to restore elasticity for soft, springy hair.
  3. Shampoo and condition with the Carol’s Daughter Monoi Shampoo and Carol’s Daughter Monoi Conditioner.
  4. Rinse and apply the Camille Rose Naturals Coconut Water Leave-in for moisture, Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker for hold, and the Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey for shine.
  5. Create small sections and smooth with the small tooth comb.
  6. Pinch the root of the section with one hand and wind the hair from roots to ends with the fingers of your other hand. Make sure the coils are smooth all the way down the length of the coil.

Make sure each section is saturated with water to prevent frizz. This style should last for a week and you can wear a coil out the following week.
