Puffs are a great go-to style for naturals. The great thing about the puff is that it can be achieved whether your hair is long or short. Puffs can be used on freshly washed hair, old hairstyles such as braidouts, and bantu knotted hair.


What You’ll Need:

Spray bottle-to dampen hair

Creamy moisturizer

Pomade, gel or edge control

Cantu shea butter define & shine custard

Wide tooth comb

Soft or hard bristled brush-for taming nape and edges

Large ouchless headband

Satin scarf (optional) to tie down edges


How To Do It:

 The secret to having a full puff on short hair is to use a headband to create the puff instead of a regular scrunchy.

Natural Puff

  1. Wash and condition hair

  2. Place the large headband around your neck

  3. Apply edge control, pomade or gel around edges and nape. Smooth hair with a soft bristle brush

  4. Pull headband up to forehead. Using both hands,  slide the headband upward until desired puff size is reached. The further back you slide the headband, the smaller the puff will be

  5. Use wide tooth comb to fluff out puff and direct hair upward to the top of the head. The goal is to cover the headband as much as possible

Finger Coiled Puff

  1. Moisten hair and apply moisturizer/leave in conditioner

  2. Follow steps 2-4

  3. Once desired puff size is reached, use Eco Styler gel or Cantu define & shine custard to define your curls by finger coiling small sections of hair all throughout the puff.

Optional: Tie a satin scarf around the perimeter of the hair for a few minutes to further tame the edges and nape.
