We all want the perfect puff, but not many know how to achieve it. The hair style seems simple enough, but some just don’t know how to achieve it or more importantly, WHAT to use. Usually, I like to use a variety of things to achieve my puff. I’ve used ribbon, a knee high, shoe string, yarn, oversized pony tail holders, old cloth belts…You name it, I’ve probably used it to create a puff. Most of those things I mentioned are NOT meant for your hair, but I recently found a product that was created just for the afro puff.
Perfect Puff by A Perfect Puff, Co. is a piece of black, round sturdy elastic (it’s super stretchy) with an adjustable fastener attached to it. It allows you to adjust the size of the band so that you can wear your puff as large as you want or as small as you want. You simply place the elastic over your head much like a stretchy headband, brush your hair up and roll the band up your hair. Next, you slide the fastener up the elastic and adjust. Tuck the tail of what you didn’t use for your puff, under the elastic band. The product is $3.99, but with shipping and handling, it’s more like $6 and some change.
I must say, I really like this nifty product. I was skeptical at first because it really looked like something that wouldn’t work for me. I have a lot of hair and I’ve mastered how to contain it all in my homemade puff accessories. I didn’t think a little piece of elastic would hold my hair, I actually thought it would pop on first use. However, it’s still securely in my hair and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere. More importantly, this little gem isn’t giving me a headache because it’s too tight. I feel comfortable, which is something that I didn’t always feel with my homemade puff contraptions. Upon first impression, I would say this is a keeper. I’m not sure about the longevity of the product since I’ve only used it once. But for 6 bucks, you can surely buy more than one if you are afraid of it popping. I plan on purchasing a few more just in case! Order your Perfect Puff here 🙂
