  • How To Create A Puff

     

    Hey Everyone,

    I was flipping through some of the on-line albums, and noticed all these beautiful puffs. The hair was pulled back (maybe brushed back), and the puffs where high, mighty, and gorgeous.

    My question is, how do you create a puff? I am sad to say, that I am clueless on this. Do you wash your hair before you create a puff, or can a puff be created on dry hair? How do you get the hair to lay down so neatly in the front? How do you keep the back of the puff looking so neat?

    I know I have a lot of questions. I gotta get me one of those puffs. I have been natural almost 9 months now, so I think that I have enough hair to do one. Any advice that I could get would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!!!!

    Though I don't have any pics of my puff yet (cause I owe fotki $30), I like to wet my hair, grab some Frizz-ease and comb/smooth it throughout my hair, or if your using gel, try just gelling the front, side and back of your hair for smoothness, then brush into shape.

    I pull my hair up into a puff with silk scarf and tie and tuck in the ends of the scarf. To make it exrta smooth, I take another scarf and wrap it around the gelled part, wait about 10/20 min. take off and I'm good! Good luck!

    I create my puff by:

    I wake up the next morning from the previous days twist out.
    I spritz my hair with my moisturizing spritz.
    I get in the shower and allow the steam to soften my hair even more.
    I then take a puff holder (stretchy headband or scarf ) and put it around my head close to my forhead.
    I then pull the puff holder back into position for a puff.
    I fluff the puff (I like that...) with my fingers so that it is uniform.
    I add a flower or leave it be for the day.

    I do a conditioner rinse in the shower and shake then apply products. To get a high puff, I use IC Fantasia on the front, sometimes I brush it back with a boars bristle brush. I take an ouchless headband and bring it over my face twice. I pull it up starting with the back and then the front to the wear I want my puff to be. Then I shake my hair again. I also have serious HIFD, so I'm pulling at my coils all day long, lol. I found some nice really thin ouchless headbands at Target, I think they are made by Goody.

    ETA: I use a PHHB to lay my hair down.

    i do it on dry hair, i don't wash my hair before creating a push and i just put some gel to lay it down and brush it back with a big boars bristle brush i always use a gel without alcohol. ( let's jam shining and conditioning gel)

    Do You guys spray anything on the Puff?

    Or Does anyone pic out the puff after it's made?

    Curly puff:
    After washing my hair, I apply a little conditioner and shea butter focusing on the edges. Then shake as for a shake & go to allow the curls to separate. Taking a tight headband (the kind that would give you a headache if you wore it all day) and starting from the front I push my hair back to the desired location/size of puff. Then I brush the front/sides/back with a boar bristle brush to smoothen. Take another headband/scarf and tie over, removing the first (tighter) one. Sometimes use another scarf to tie over front to keep it smooth. Then pick out puff as desired with fingers. Once I'm done and ready, remove the scarf from the front and go.

    Afro puff:
    Usually after having taking down twists or braids. Sometimes comb out. Push hair back to desired location with hairband/scarf. Mist front/sides with water, apply shea butter, brush with boar bristle brush to smoothen and cover with scarf till ready to leave.

    To do my puff I braid my hair at night and then pick it out by sections. I do this for about two days and that is how I get good volume to my hair and get it up pretty high.

    i'm so proud of myself, cuz i just discovered how to do a fabu puff! ^_^

    at night i twist my hair in big twists, approx. 10. in the morning, after my shower, i smooth jamaican black castor oil on the front of my hair, brush with a boar bristle brush to gather. while gathering the hair, i finger pick my puff to desired fullness, then wrap with an ouchless goody band. voila!

    i had a fierce puff this morning. that is until i went outside into the misting rain. <_< that's ok, cuz it's still fierce, just on a smaller scale.:P

    I still haven't figured out how to do a real puff but, I like my version too (which is more like a ponytail). I co-wash my hair and while it is still wet, apply whipped shea. Then I take some IC gel and put that on the front and a little on the back. I take my boar bristle brush and brush the hair into place. I then take my ouchless ponytail holder and wrap it around twice. Place a scarf on for at least 15 mins (sometimes I drive to school with it on) and then I'm good to go.

    I have found that after I let my dry, I can loosen the ouchless holder to make the "puff" bigger.
