For those of us with natural hair, what do you use to put your hair in a puff?
When I put my hair in a puff, I like to use my homemade flax-seed gel, water and my goody ouch-less stretch bands. I used to use eco styler gel or shea butter but I no longer use eco styler gel because I am trying to transition in to using only natural products and I no longer use shea butter because it's too heavy and greasy for my hair.
I use a ribbon. A lot of people use a large rubber band, but since I have around shoulder length, voluminous, 4c type hair, I need something a bit stronger.
My technique is to brush my hair to prevent flyaways and add gel for extra hold. Then I take the ribbon, hold one end in each hand. I center the ribbon behind my head then tie it loosely in the front. Tighten the ribbon as tight as you like it, and your puff is formed. If any strands remain, you can gel them back as well.
I'm primarily a braidout twistout kind of person so i use a butter to slick my hair back. I use goody bands or a knee hi or headband to pull the hair up or back. Of course, be gentle when using your bands to pull your hair up or back.
