Four things to consider when you wear a puff 

I love my puff but as a #type4, I have to be very careful with my hair when I wear it. Here are 4 things you will want to consider when you wear a puff:
1. Make sure that your hair isn’t pulled too tight. Edges are e-v-e-r-y-thing and you don’t want them permanently damaged due to stressful styles.
2. When you take your hair down at night, be sure to braid, twist or pineapple your hair in order to minimize tangles and knots.
3. Moisturize your hair with a non water based moisturizer such as Moisturizing Hair Butter. Water based creams will make your hair shrink and ultimately tangle.
4. To keep your edges and nape smooth, when you’re not out and about, have your hair wrapped in a satin scarf. This will train your hair to lay better.

I am Tasha and I am the Founder of Naturally Smitten. I have been natural since 2007. I didn’t transition for very long because I was very excited about becoming natural. I BC’d after transitioning for only four months. My 4a/4b (mostly 4b) hair is very thick and coily. It takes a lot to retain moisture. My hair also loves to tangle and knot up! I have had a difficult time finding the “right” product for my hair. Many of the products that I have tried, didn’t leave me with enough moisture. I decided to create a moisturizer that would hydrate and moisturize coarsely textured hair. I want to educate women on how to care for their natural hair and how to maintain healthy length.
