Our hair is best protected in a curl. Which makes sense - It comes out of our heads curled for a reason. So here are 4 reasons we keep our ends curled.
1. It’s Beautiful
To seal the ends of a braided or twisted style, I coil their ends like the picture above. It looks beautiful and honors her natural texture.
2. Protect Ends
By keeping the ends clumped together in a curl, I find it's the best way to keep them protected.
Curls roll up on themselves as a natural form of self-preservation - our hairs way of protecting itself.
4. Hair Growth
In order to grow their hair, I have to make sure their ends are well moisturized and cared for. I saturate their ends with water, conditioner and oil, before fingercoiling the ends.
How Do You Fingercoil The Ends?
You need a fine tooth comb to catch the super tiny hairs. Then comb through your ends making them flat. They will naturally want to curl back up into a single curl.
