Run a piece of scrap yarn through hands to resemble fingers, if desired.
Sew arms onto troll

Hair
You will need many pieces of yarn, cut into 5 inch pieces or so. Each piece of yarn will act as 2 strands of hair.
Insert hook into troll head at hair line. Use round 3 of troll head where you crocheted in BLO as a guide. I attached a strand of hair in the usused loop around his head, and filled in the middle. Grab middle of yarn strand with hook and pull through stitch, ( Like you would latch hook!) making a small loop. Pull both free ends of yarn strand through loop, pulling tight to secure hair.
You will continue to do this around the head.
Trim hair even in back, or as desired.
To give him a wavy look, (as pictured) I untwisted each strand of hair, and separated it. Tedious, but looks neat.
Another option, comb hair for a frizzy look.
Enjoy!
