How can I make my Coily hair look good?
Much like other hair textures, Coily hair can be styled in various ways to achieve an individual’s desired look. With the right products and techniques, you can create a style that will make your Coily hair look good.
Use a moisturizer on your hair daily (and don’t forget about your ends).
Wrap/braid at night. This will help keep it moisturized and prevent breakage. If you choose not to wrap/braid, then sit under a hooded dryer for 20 minutes before bedtime. Don’t fall asleep with wet hair.
Check your products to make sure you don’t have any too heavy for your type of curl. This can cause excessive drying and frizzing. I have noticed that it is best not to use gels on my hair when it is dry because they leave my hair feeling like straw (which makes me want to scratch off my scalp). Some people like using gels on dry hair, but I only like flaxseed gel on dry curls (recipe can be found here).
How do you style short Coily hair?
There are so many ways to style short Coily hair. I think the trick is to discover what works best for you based on your natural texture and curl pattern, your routine and maintenance regimen, and the types of products that work best for your curl type. Then, try different styles depending on how much time you have in the morning to spend styling your hair each day. Try simple styles like twist-outs or braid-outs if you’re pressed for time. Play around with wash n’ go styles or even wash day buns if you have more time! Something is exciting about trying new things with your hair; it’s an excellent opportunity to express yourself through various looks!
Wash and go style is the simplest of all-natural hairstyles for Coily hair. The idea behind this wash and go is to create volume at the crown while keeping the sides flat against the scalp. To achieve this look, you will need a solution of your favorite oil or butter (shea butter, cocoa butter) mixed with water. This mixture of oil and water can be applied to wet or dry hair. Once applied, style your hair using twists and braids. See how to make a curl pattern here.
