4 Reasons We Keep Our Ends Coiled/Curled

I’ve noticed our hair is best protected in a curl. Which makes sense - It comes out of our heads curled for a reason.

In attempt to honor our hair’s natural texture, here are four reasons we keep our ends curled.

1. It’s Beautiful

We all have different curl patterns and I love to celebrate our hair’s uniqueness. So whether I plait or twist their hair. I make sure to fingercoil the ends.

2. Protect Ends

By keeping the ends clumped together in a curl, I find this to be the best way to keep them protected.

3. Self-Preservation

Curls literally roll up on themselves creating a natural form of self-preservation.

I believe it’s 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, let them curl up on themselves and seal with oil.

Do you finger coil your ends too? What benefits have you noticed from keeping the ends curled?

Until next time...

Love Thyself,
