It’s the million dollar natural question, how can you get the perfect puff.
Every natural at some point has come in crossroads with putting their hair in what is called the “Puff”. The puff is also known as the ponytail but with all natural hair. Trust me there is a big difference.
So what is a PuffCuff? A circular banana clip in the simplest of terms. However, it definitely solves the issue of the incredible puff. Since it’s circular you can simply gather your hair to the middle of your hair and hook the PuffCuff around it which is a ton easier than an elastic band.

Coconut Oil is definitely a God sent product. It is used in every natural and curly heads journey. Since the rise of demand in coconut oil has doubled in the last 10 years, our shelves have went from maybe two products in the supermarket to 15 types of coconut oil. So how can you choose which are okay to use? Easy
Let’s start with basic definitions.
Unrefined is non-bleached coconut oil freshly pressed and shipped, whilst Refined means bleached and chemically manipulated to remove coconut odor and flavor.
Since we are talking just about hair and not skin nor food, neither of these make a difference, so it all boils down to the end goal of your results.
|can be expensive||typically pretty cheap|
|strong coconut smell||odorless|
|pure unmodified||bleached and chemically altered|
|healthy antioxidants||antioxidants removed|
|expires faster||longer shelf life|
So what are my favorites? The Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil is certainly one of my favorites.
