PuffCuff LLC was launched in August of 2013 by founder, Ceata E. Lash. While transitioning to natural hair, Ceata created the original PuffCuff out of the need for a product to style hair in a puff without the breakage or pain usually associated with using rubber or elastic bands that tug and rip hair each time they're worn and removed. It's the only clamp for thick, curly hair on the market! PuffCuff is made with a durable high impact-resistant plastic and designed with a contour fit. PuffCuff's wide mouth is specially crafted to accommodate thick hair without cinching tightly while maintaining comfort. The short teeth and hook closure allow it to stay securely in place. This unisex hair clamp will not cause hair breakage or damage, and it works with all types of thick hair— including dread locs, twists and braids.
