Comb Coils for Short Hair
Comb Coils work great for short hair, up to 11/2 inches to 2 inches in length.
Tools to have on hand:
Fine-tooth comb and medium-tooth comb for sectioning
A soft holding gel or hair lotion (avoid gels with tons of alcohol in the ingredients)
Comb Coil Method:
Step One: Start with freshly WCD hair (Wash/Conditioned/Detangled)
Step Two: Apply a generous amount of your favorite daily leave-in conditioner through your hair, roots to tip.
Step Three: Starting at the back or nape, section out inch of hair with a comb and apply a fair amount of holding gel/lotion or twisting gel/lotion.
Step Four: Position and secure the tip of the fine-tooth comb through the 1/2 inch hair.
Step Five: Start twisting the hair using the comb in a downward motion.
Step Six: Twist to the very end of the hair section and carefully pull out the comb.
Step Seven: Repeat this process until your entire head is sectioned and coiled.
Step Eight: Air-dry or sit under a hooded dryer and completely dry your hair. (Keep your fingers out of your hair to prevent frizz!)
