We love that our curlfriends can find curly hair care advice in just a few easy clicks, but knowing where to start can be confusing when you have the internet at your fingertips! Every curlfriend’s hair is different, but there is one universal rule for all hair types that can help you maintain healthy and robust curls: Stay away from tension!
Putting tension on your curls is the root cause of many hair loss issues our curlfriends encounter. Just like how tension stresses our body, tension can stress the root and strand of your hair until it begins to cause damage that results in changes to your curl pattern, breakage, and at its worst, balding, aka traction alopecia. We assume since you’re reading a blog about haircare on a hair accessory website, the last thing you want is to be snatched bald! Fun fact, the tension, and damage our founder experienced when she started her natural hair journey is what inspired her to create the PuffCuff! If a new style, technique, or tool you’re using is causing pulling and tension to the point of discomfort, it’s time to ditch it.
Confused about where to start on your tension-free journey? Well, you’re in the right spot! Our tools and products are designed to be tension-free and curl healthy. Take a look at our curlfriend’s favorite way to dip their toes into a head-ache-free alternative to the elastic band; the Just Try It Curlfriend! Goodie Bag!
This recently revamped goodie bag now includes all 5 PuffCuff sizes (one ORIGINAL, JUNIOR, MINI, MICRO, and TEENY each) and is great for a puff on the go or for creating intricate styles. Here are some creative ways our curlfriends have used the PuffCuff to create damage-free styles.
