Finger Coils, Attempt Number 2

Yesterday I decided to try finger coils on Cecie's hair again. I can't remember if I've talked about this specifically on here before, but finger coils are basically when you take several small curls and twirl them into your fingers to make one larger curl.

Since Cecie is so young I don't want to use too many products in her hair, but I found a couple of natural ones to try. I don't think the strongest gel on the market could keep this kind of style in her hair, though. About 90% of the coils didn't even come close to surviving the night!

Even with an assistant (thanks, D), it took forever to get all the coils done because she won't keep her head still. She looks all over the place and is constantly trying to grab anything to put in her mouth. That factor alone keeps me from attempting anything more complicated.

The day is looming though. We can only walk out of the house with hair like this for so long...

If that didn't make you smile, I don't know what would! After a bath and a detangling session (which is thankfully still very easy), her fro is in FULL force. It soon relaxes, but can you see why I have hair on the brain all the time?!

Anyway, that was before. And this was after...

Smile again? I know I smile every time I look at the before and after here :)

I don't know what style's coming up next, but I know it's coming soon enough. Somehow I have to learn how to do two strand twists, flat rope twists, cornrows, bandu knots, yarn extensions, twist outs, etc., etc.

Might just stick with headbands for a while...


  1. So freakin cute, just can't stand it!!


  2. The options sound exhausting! Headbands sound good to me!!

  3. Amazing! She is beautiful!
