Finger Coil Success


My desire for success is stronger than my fear of failure.

And with that said, I tried something new and my first attempt with finger coils was surprisingly successful. I simply used my index finger and wrapped my hair around it until it was very curly. Then, I let it go gently so that I wouldn’t ruin the curl pattern I created. Have you tried this? If so, share your story.

Products used:

1. My index finger :).

2. Beautiful textures moisture butter.

3. Eco Styler olive oil gel.

With Love,




This is what the finger coils look like after I completed them. My hair was still wet here. I didn’t do that many coils because it is time-consuming to unravel them, but I made sure they were very neat.


This photo was snapped on day 5 of wearing this style. It was starting to get a bit frizzy, but the curls held up. They were still very tight and springy.


Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter, where have you been all of my life?! This is my new favorite product. My hair is very thick and it works wonders for my twist outs, braid outs, and Bantu Knot outs. It also smells amazing! Retail price between $5.49 and $6.99.


Eco Styler Olive Oil Gel. Heaven in a bottle. I’ve seen a lot of posts where bloggers say that this product doesn’t work for them. It works great for my hair. I use it lightly for twists and braids, and heavier for updo’s and buns. The moment this touches my hair, it curls up like Jerry Curls. I have 2 large bottles! I never want to run out :). Retail price between $2.85 to $3.99. The larger containers cost more.

    1. Hey Jess,

      Thank you. It took me about one hour to finger coil it. But it has lasted an entire week, so it was well worth it! You should give it a try 🙂
      I’m looking at your blog now. I love it. I’m going to read some of your posts.

  1. It looks great! I may have to try this, but my hair is sooo thick. It would take sooo long (it takes me a few hours just to put in two strand twists!). Did you do this while your hair was damp (like after shampooing?) or while your hair was dry (with the added moisturizers you used)? Thanks for the tips and the pics! 🙂

    1. Hi again :). My hair is very thick as well. You can do it! Give it a try. I washed and conditioned my hair, applied my leave-in-conditioner (Karen’s body beautiful) and used the other 2 products listed. My hair was damp when I did it. I towel dried a bit. It takes me an hour to do most styles after the wash/condition/detangle process.

      1. Yeah, it’s about that long for me, too. Unless I do two strand twists all over. It takes a while, but looks really nice and can last for a couple of weeks. I will try this! You make it sound so easy, and does help that the hair is moist, I bet. Thanks so much. 🙂

          1. That’s just it: they aren’t twist outs. They are 2 strand twists that you LEAVE IN. They look great on thick hair (yours and mine) and can last about 2 weeks (maybe longer). Yeah my twist outs last only for two days..ugh! 🙂

            1. Oh! Ok, now that makes sense. I was thinking that you had some supernatural hair that gives you twist outs for a few weeks. Ha-ha! Ok, well, thanks for clarifying. It all makes sense now. I’m in the middle of reading your post about “The life we chose”. What an emotional rollercoster. It’s like a mini novel. I love the way that you write.

    1. Hey Alisha,

      Thanks a bunch. It took about one hour to do this. I did get asked a few times if this was my regular curl pattern, I didn’t know it would look like a wash n go. That makes me like it even more.

Please, share your thoughts!
