There is an alternative to finger coils! We know finger coiling can take hours to do, but fret no more. With your TWA, you can achieve coils within minutes, using a sponge.
Yes, just when you thought that there was not much you could do with that TWA, you were wrong. This method is for those short-haired, natural girls who want cute coils, or if you are planning on starting dreads, this method is also popular for getting them started.
All you will need is your favorite product, a sponge (preferably with big holes), and your hair. Some people take it upon themselves to cut larger holes into their sponge. The bigger the holes in the sponge, the bigger the coils and clumps.
If you buy a sponge without holes, just draw your circles on the sponge one by one and cut them out with scissors. This is time-consuming, but it works. Again, real sponges come with medium size to big sized holes.
Once you have your sponge the way you want it, set that aside and grab your hair product. It is said that certain products enhance this method dramatically. Soft-styling gels or creams will work just fine.
In this video, Fuesha used a foam sea sponge from Walmart on her twa. She spritzed her hair with water and applied a generous amount of her Shea Moisture* Curling Souffle. She proceeded to rub the sponge gently in a clockwise motion until every coil was formed all over her head. After that, you can clearly see the coils formed and clumped together, giving Fuesha a different look.
If that wasn’t enough we have one more video for you that you can take a look at. She’kia Renea does the same thing in 5 minutes using a sponge.
