We got our Senior Copywriter Gerilyn in front of the camera to rock her double coiled coils with products from the Coconut Restore suite!

Is there anyone out there that still thinks you can't style a TWA?

Go on, show of hands. We're not here to embarrass anyone—this is a place of learning.

Shorter hair is often said to be a style in and of itself, in fact, that's said to be one of the perks of an under 6 inch 'do—you don't have to do anything with it. But that doesn't mean you can't.

Our Senior Copywriter Gerilyn, whom you'll all already recognize for her writing, community work, music, AND video spots, has also broken into hair modeling— and she has a look for us that put her fluffy 4C 'fro into high definition.

Check the technique!

Now that's how you jazz things up.

This is definitely a 'do that takes a little time, but when you've got few hours, a hood dryer, and a desire for a style that really showcases your texture, you won't need anything else but the will to be fab...and these Coconut Restore products we used to create G's coils!

After regular washing and conditioning, we stretched and strengthened Gerilyn's hair with the Coconut Restore Keratin Intensive Repair Masque.

This protein powerhouse helps to seal ends, strengthen damaged hair and pre-game healthy hair for any upcoming heat treatments. Coconut oil teams up with linseed oil (hello painterly curlies!) to soften and moisturize your hair, while proteins build up any weak links in your locks—all with a spare 10 minutes and a shower cap!

Little advice? This isn't your everyday keratin treatment. Too much of a good thing is definitely possible, so as much as it might pain you to be apart from this jar, in particular, make sure you're not kicking your gentler conditioners to the curb.

Before we brought the heat, we brought out the Revitalizing Whipped Coconut Oil.

We also brought it after the heat! Not only is this oil combo great for post-rinse conditioning thick coils like G's, it's also a top-notch shine adding agent for when you want a little extra lens flare effect.

Fun fact: this whipped combo is also perfect for moisturizing your skin! The beeswax helps seal your hair and dermis against losing hydration, and the added coumarin keeps you smelling subtly sweet from head to feet!

The Setting and Styling Gelee kept these coils poppin'!

Is there anything any coily knows more than the style-breaking 'foof'? Maybe you use a different sound effect, but we all know that moment when our hair decides it won't be beholden to how we've styled it and reverts back to its natural state. That's a beautiful, place to be, yes. Just not so much when you've put in the work to have it be otherwise for a bit. And this is where the gelee comes in! Twirl a small amount into your curls before blow-drying to keep up the hold, and get your style solidified!

More like set and never ever forget. And speaking of forgetfulness, don't forget to check your porosity to determine how much gelee you need! Lower porosity means less product—you want a style, not a gel-shell!

Do you 4C yourself trying this style?
