This is a perfect style for naturals, transitioners and even non-naturals. All you really need is a little patience and the right products so these tricks can help you to create these beatiful coils in your your hair.
For the first Going Natural Hair show in 2008 Khamit Kinks created this special style that you can only do with short natural hair.
A year ago, I decided to cut my locs off. I then started wearing my hair natural. Ever since then, I’ve had a lot trouble with my hair breaking off due to the tightness of my curls. How can I loosen up my hair without having to straighten it or perm it?
For Challenge 5 I was given the task of creating a How to Guide for Creating Hair Coils.
To achieve the Coils I had to roll my hair on flex rods. This was the first time I ever used rollers of any kind since going Natural. I also have never worn my hair in Coils. The process of Coiling my hair was new to me. I learned a lot about my hair texture through out the process. For example, a little product goes a long way with my hair. Too much product causes my hair to become too soft to hold a curl and/or the product will flake in my hair. **SIGH**
During my photo shoot, I had a turkey in the oven and was in the midst of cleaning the house for my Thanksgiving Dinner guests. I was multi-tasking to the fullest!! There was no way I was going to be able to take pictures after filling my belly with turkey, sides, and sweet potato pie… :0)
This challenge is all about creating new natural hair styles. Please take a look at our pictures and read our How to Guides AND don’t forget to vote and comment on our pictures/articles.

Wearing my hair in locs has taught me many things but the one I love most is stay true to who you are, the natural you. Throughout our lives we are told to be a certain way in order to be perceived as beautiful.
Feel Like Royalty When the challenge was presented to me, it was quite a surprise. I didn’t think we’d be producing ads! I briefly reflected on my college days when in Communications 101 we had to create clever ads.
