Has anyone tried/mastered the Tracee Ross Poof?

Hi Everyone...

I was wondering if anyone has mastered the Tracee Poof?

I'm thinking that it would have to do with the amount and type of product used...but I just wanted to see if someone has a technique to get her kinda controlled, poofy look on first day hair? Just curious...

Here's some pics that I found...first starting off with her defined curls and then to her poofier version.

    For starters Tracee is my hair idol! 2nd she texlaxes. That's why her hair is much loose or "poofier". When you texlax you have more "control" of your hair. She also does a lot of twists & braid outs. Her hair is still fly..

    HTH!!

    Yes, I love her hair as well and she is also one of my hair idols. What exactly is texlax by the way?

    when i use my denman and brush my hair straight back like im going to put it in a ponytail, i tend to get results like the last picture.

    Can anyone recommend a good at-home texlax? I want something to soften the edges of my hair and maybe loosen up my curls a little.

    Would a texturizer change the quality or integrity of your hair? Would it make it more vulnerable for damage?

    Yes & no. It depends on how you care for your hair. You can get a texlax & as long as you treat it every week, you should be fine..

    a texturizer is a relaxer. so it changes the structure of your hair, just like a relaxer. there is no professional difference between the two. so youd have to take the same precautions as you would with a regular relaxer.

    Thanks for the replies...I just love her hair...it's so versatile and she has so many cute hairstyles.

    Subbrock, good suggestion about brushing hair back with a denman...I'm going to try that one out!

    Does this happen anytime you brush your hair or just when you do it back for a ponytail? That used to happen to me when I wore ponytails more frequently, but I always thought it was a combo of the brushing and the fact the hair was stretched out by pulling it back.

    it happens when i brush/comb my hair back. for my usual shake n gos after i detangle i usually shake my hair so that it doesnt look like that. but when i dont, especially after using the denman, the curls stay clumped and it dries in that joan clayton pyramid puff.

    I like my hair with more volume. I really have flatter hair, but I do whatever I can to make it poofier.
