I absolutely love big puffs and huge Afros!

I love to tease my own natural hair to get that "poofy" look, whether I'm going for the Queen Afro or the Duchess Afro Puff...however, the detangling process is tiresome and just too much for me. I needed another outlet to get the look that I wanted for the summer without having to detangle my hair so much...

So when I saw my friend at church and her huge Afro puff, I had to ask her about it. She let me know that she purchased her Afro puff from the local beauty supply for $10! And I was so excited about that! I could go for the look I wanted and this will be an awesome protective style for my own hair.

From my own experience if you are having trouble with your family and your natural hair, here are my tips to alleviate some of the issues:
