Video: Puff on Long Natural Hair

Click the image to be taken to the video
As a long hair natural (nearly waist length!) one thing I miss about having short natural hair is being able to throw my hair into a puff whenever I pleased. I would rock a puff out for about a week at times. Now that my hair is long, doing the traditional puff method results in a ponytail. That's great, but not the look I was going for. To get a puff on long natural hair I follow these steps.

1. Pull hair into a ponytail 
2. Fan out the hair around the base of the ponytail
3. Randomly push ends toward the ponytail base and pin in place

Notes: 
  • You don't want to do this too neatly or roll the hairs because it will look like a doughnut bun.
  • Leave the messy hairs on top to add to the puff look.

April 2015 Curlkit


Like any other day, I checked the mail after work and found a box taking up half of our mailbox. I thought "I didn't order anything." and "Did Juan order something?" I pulled out the package to find that it was yet another curlkit in my name. Imagine my surprise! I thought the box my friend got me for my birthday was a one box deal, especially since this friend is as "fiscally aware" as myself. (Love you girl! lol) I hope she really meant for me to get another box!

    Do you know your strand thickness? Knowing the thickness of your individual strands can make a big difference in your regimen and ultimately your length retention.

    FINE - Many WOC have this thickness
    Thin Strands
    Prone to breakage
    Can easily be weighed down

    MEDIUM
    Not too thick or thin
    Less prone to breakage

    COARSE
    Thick strands
    Herculean strength
    Resistant to dye

    The thinner your strands are, the more careful you need to be with your hair. 
    What is your strand thickness? Comment below!
