Want perfect curls? And volume? And movement?
Learn how to revamp your curl pattern into fresh, bouncy ringlets, with this coiling method tutorial!
For best results, start with freshly washed / co-washed (washed with conditioner) hair. I co-washed my hair with Bain de Terre’s Argan Oil Sleek and Smooth Conditioner. I finger-detangled while conditioning, to smooth my hair in preparation for the coiling. Next, I added a handful of Wella’s Enrich Moisturizing Conditioner for Coarse Hair to my hair.
For this style, I prefer to leave in both conditioners. It might feel like you have a lot of product in your hair, but it really helps the definition of the coils. After I showered, I wrapped my curls in an old t-shirt to avoid frizz.
1. Divide your hair into four sections.
- Take down one of the sections in the back.
- Part a smaller section from this one, and pin the rest up.
- Grab a small piece of hair from this section to coil. Take your pointer finger and wrap it around the base of the hair. Then, in a twisting motion, coil the hair from the top to the bottom.
Complete the back sections and then the front. After all four sections are complete, I massaged a quarter-sized amount of Bain de Terre’s Recovery Complex Anti-frizz Shine Serum all over. Next, on a cool or warm low setting, blow dry your hair.
Here are my results!
I finished this style by massaging a little extra shine serum all over.
I am such a huge fan of the coiling method! This style, especially when protected overnight, can last up to 7 or 8 days! My suggestion is to put your hair into a high, loose ponytail (pineapple method) and cover it in a satin bonnet. Refresh your hair each day with a spray bottle filled water and leave-in conditioner, and touch up your ends every other day with a little organic oil of your choice!
