Our beloved PuffCuff is always one of our favs, but Team PuffCuff also uses a variety of other products that make a difference as styling aides. So today we wanted to share what’s on our hit list for hair products we love. These are hair care products and accessories that Team PuffCuff considers favorites, and we’d love to know what products for natural and curly or textured hair are your favorites too!
What It Is: The Huetiful Hair Steamer and hairstyling vapor wand specifically designed to help you quickly and naturally rejuvenate, enhance and enjoy your hair's curls and waves.
Why We Love It: One thing we tell all of our customers is that the best way to use your PuffCuff is when your hair is soft and moisturized. Sometimes that’s hard to do especially if you can’t always wash or wet your hair before using your PuffCuff. We love Huetiful's Hair Steamer because it was designed with the insight that hydration is the foundation to healthy hair. One more thing we love about Huetiful is that, like us, it's a homegrown enterprise.
What It Is: Kriya Botanicals is a botanically-based organic and natural hair and spa care product line. Ah, just hearing that description sounds soothing.
Why We Love It: There’s a wide variety of styling aids in this hair care line to choose from. The hair moisturizers contain natural ingredients and have no parabens, no mineral oil, no silicones, and no petroleum. And best of all, the hair products work as intended. Even better, Kriya Botanicals has a line of spa products that includes a handmade soap and body polish. This is the type of product that leaves you feeling yummy all over after you apply it! If you want to try a specific product in this line, we recommend Botanical Infusion Healthy Hair Oil-- it's a personal favorite of our founder.
What It Is: Another favorite of ours for hair care and skin products. All Patsie Girl products are handmade using all natural, high quality ingredients. They contain NO alcohol, NO silicone, NO mineral oil, and NO chemicals, basically…no funny stuff, just natural hair products and body care.
Why We Love It: Patsie Girl’s products are all handmade with no funny stuff—no alcohol, silicone, mineral oil, or chemicals. The product was launched in Los Angeles in 2013 and we support homegrown! Two items you might want to try include the Vanilla-Brown Sugar Scrub and you can order a Product Sample Kit to get a feel for their product line in 2 ounce sizes. Patsie Girl’s Spritz Splash Daily Moisturizer is a personal favorite of our founder.
What It Is: This product is a permanent hair color system with natural and Certified Organic ingredients for any hair type. It has no ammonia and no sulfates and offers salon quality results (when used correctly) at a great value.
Why We Love It: The search is over for a permanent hair color system that doesn’t contain harsh chemicals. When our Marketing Director tried henna, her hair just didn’t take to it. So after finding Shea Moisture’s Hair Color System, she had to try it. We can happily report that this permanent hair color system worked out quite well. The ingredients kept the hair hydrated while adding sheen. The light brown highlights she desired came out as expected and no sacrifice was made by using a product that didn’t have ammonia. We just love it!
What It Is: Ok, this one falls out of the norm for hair products, but we wanted to feature it! Dyna Smiles is a simply adorable line of everyday accessories ranging from coffee mugs to phone cases, wall art, and stationery.
Why We Love It: Carrying accessories by Dyna Smiles just adds a little bit of fun into the mix. We love their big, bright and happy smiles of the colorful character illustrations. They also come in varying skin tones and hair textures and always leave you with something to smile about.
What It Is: All the items you need to style your puff wrapped into a handy bundle. The PuffCuff Toolbox contains a Detangling Hair Brush for thick hair, Ultra Smooth Hair Pick infused with Argan Oil, Olive Oil and Keratin, the original 5” PuffCuff Hair Clamp, 100% silk handmade double-sided junior sleep bonnet (fabric color and design may vary), and a 100% cotton natural hair graphic fitted t-shirt.
Why We Love It: How can we not? The Toolbox is exclusively made for anyone who loves and cherishes their hair. It’s also a bit different from other product sample kits because it isn’t filled with shampoos or conditioners—it’s designed for the woman who takes pride in her textured, curly hair. It’s one of the personal favorites of our company’s founder and creator.
What It Is: A t-shirt with an original design by our founder, meant to encourage young girls to be comfortable in their own skin and embrace the beautiful hair they were born with. The I Love Me & I Love My Hair t-shirt is designed for girls and sizes are also carried for women.
Why We Love It: No matter the hair type—wavy, curly, kinky, coily—we want women of all textured hair types to take pride in their beautiful locks and curls. This t-shirt is an outward expression of that pride and we love to share it.

We're happy to celebrate our 3rd birthday for PuffCuff! PuffCuff was born out of our founder's personal need for a hair clamp that wouldn’t snag or pull her natural curls and waves. If you're a fan of PuffCuff, we're sure you can relate to this, too! The truth of the matter is, just over three years ago, there wasn't a single hair accessory on the market that could do what PuffCuff does. And there still isn't!
Now that we’re celebrating our 3rd (yes, 3rd!) birthday, we wanted to take it back to the roots with Founder Ceata Lash and learn about her inspiration, her challenges and where she sees PuffCuff going in the many years to come!
Read below to see details during a one-on-one sit down with PuffCuff's founder and inventor, Ceata Lash.
From its inception, PuffCuff has been a family-oriented business, and it all started with Ceata's 99-year-old grandmother, who she says, “was my heart, and I loved her dearly. In our quiet moments together, I often wondered, ‘Did she do everything she wanted to do in her long life? Did she pursue all of her dreams?’”
When the answer was an extremely confident, “YES,” Ceata began to wonder if she would be quite at peace when looking back on her life if she were granted 99 years. When she couldn’t say for certain that she would be at peace, Ceata says she, “decided I had to try; if I failed, it wouldn’t be for lack of trying.”
What started as a shelfed dream became PuffCuff: “PuffCuff, LLC. launched in November of 2013, and the first PuffCuff was available for purchase in February 2014! Ceata said, “Here I am!” and took the leap!
Ceata is often asked, “How is the PuffCuff different than a banana clip or comb?”
Ceata says: The PuffCuff’s unique teeth are designed to lock into the texture or curl of your hair and hold the clamp in place – NOT to glide through the hair like a comb or banana clip. I realized that most, if not all, hair styling accessories on the market today are designed for straight, thin hair – NOT for my naturally thick, curly, course hair!
Though the concept of PuffCuff is similar to the familiar banana clip, it functions differently because it works with your hair instead of against it. Existing products, like the banana clip and elastic bands, cinched my hair to its smallest point of resistance, creating “bunny tail hair” (not a good look for a grown woman), hair breakage, damage to the accessory and pure frustration for me!
As such, our product requires users to follow the usage directions to have a successful experience because it doesn’t pull your hair tight – it’s designed to hold your hair comfortably without tugging, snagging or pulling.
Check out this video for step-by-step instructions (and see why PuffCuff is different from other hair accessories!):
Though small business is the crux of American society and the starting point for building the American Dream, small business ownership is not without its challenges, from funding to marketing to execution.
Regarding the challenges she’s faced as a small business owner, Ceata says: I’ve never been at a point of ‘throwing up my hands’ and walking away. Despite the “many instances where we had no idea how we were going to pay a supplier or vendor,” my husband turn back to God. My husband and I truly believe God has ordained this whole process, and He is in control. We listen and wait for His word. We will not quit until He says it’s time to stop. So far, he has placed the right person to accomplish a particular goal or get past a certain hurdle at the right time…Without faith in Him, PuffCuff would be impossible.
Meditating on my favorite scripture Proverbs 3:5 & 6; “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy path.” – helps us to not become overwhelmed by the big picture and instead focus on the immediate situations at hand.
We realize sometimes you have to get out of your own way and let God do his thing. That’s our philosophy, and it has enabled us to continue on this path.
There are so many wonderful things going on here at PuffCuff, and we can’t wait to share them with you! We’ve been working diligently with our various teams and brand ambassadors to continue spreading the word about PuffCuff because we aren’t currently in “your local big box store,” which Founder Ceata Lash hints may be in the future (Wink, wink!).
We recently expanded our sales to Amazon.ca. We also still hold true to offering specials when purchases are made directly through our website. Shipping for US orders is free and shipping for international orders has a flat rate of only $5.99 USD. We also offer wholesale opportunities to online boutiques, salon owners and brick and mortar retailers. International distribution plans are currently in the works within the next 12 months, so keep an eye out for our expansion!

Hey everyone! We’ve been talking about new products for our store and guess what? They’re finally here. The PuffCuff Juniors, Minis, and Micros are now available for sale! The PuffCuff itself is great, but it’s even better now with these three smaller sizes. The PuffCuff Junior is 3.125 inches wide, the Mini is 2.5 inches wide, and the Micros are 1.625 inches wide. These are smaller in comparison to our regular PuffCuff (5 inches wide). All three of our new products are made out of the same material as the regular-sized PuffCuff and come in packs of two (for the Junior), three (for the Mini), and five (for the Micros). They can be secured around your hair to create fun styles such as buns, side buns, puffs and more. Here are some styles you can achieve with these new PuffCuffs!
Double Puff and more!
Remember the dreaded rubber bands, clips, and bubbles your Mom haphazardly put in your hair? God forbid they snapped (they usually do) and hit your head. No more of that! Start by moisturizing your hair before styling. Parting your down the middle and gather each side and insert the PuffCuff Junior or Mini at the base of each section. Once secured, gently shape each puff until you’ve reached your desired volume and ta-da! No pain, tears or projectile bubbles. You can also make buns instead of puffs, add buns, or use the PuffCuff Micro to create three or four puffs!
Afro Mohawk (kids or adults)
Another style you can achieve with the PuffCuff Mini and Junior is the Afro Mohawk. Start by sectioning your hair into three parts (front, middle, back). Gather each section and insert a PuffCuff Mini or Micro at the base – remember to moisturize your hair first for best results. After you’ve secured each cuff, gently comb out your puff until each section meets. Continue to shape into your desired volume of Mohawk and you’re done!
Other variations include creating three buns instead of puffs or bangs and two or three puffs on the top, middle and back of your head.
