Finger coils are easy to do and look pretty good with minimal effort. On freshly washed/conditioned hair, I applied a quarter size amount of leave in conditioner. Then, I began sectioning my hair into (approx.) 1-inch sections. Grabbing the hair at the root, I began coiling the section of hair around my index finger along the entire length. Follow these steps over the entire head, and BAM...finger coils.
Maintaining was another story. As the finger coils dried, they became poofy and lost their luster.
