NEW Coil out for this week

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.
I sat under the dryer for an hour and 20 min then went to bed, clips removed and tied up loosely in a scarf.  The next morning I didn't have time to split them all but I split just enough to finagle a style for work.  When I got home I split the rest of them:

Here was the result!!  I'll keep you posted on how long it lasts.


  1. It looks great! I can't wait to try this!

  2. Very cute! I've never tried coil-outs, definitely on my to-do list.

  3. Haven't done a coil out in forever! This is almost making me want to do one again! Maybe tonight when I co-wash!!! :)

  4. I've never tried a coil out before because I'm not sure how it would turn out on my hair but now I definitely want to try it! xx

  5. That's beautiful! Was it terribly time-consuming? I think I could do the same thing (or similar) with skinny cold wave rods.
