Once I reminded myself of the coil out of years past I decided to try it again.
Oh how I missed it. It seems like such a cheat style- like a straw set but in a fraction of the time.
I started with freshly washed hair. I applied a small amount of Quidad leave in (what little I had left in an old bottle) then I used my tangle teaser to smooth sections and apply Giovanni Sunset Styling lotion mixed with Castor oil. I coiled each section in large singe coils, or twists and used allegator clips to keep the roots from unraveling like in the pictures below.
Here was the result!! I'll keep you posted on how long it lasts.
