If you want to get the special people in your life a little something, but you’re on a budget, plus you’re not sure what to buy, at least take a moment to check out this official natural hair stocking stuffers list. Although you probably know just as well as I do that there are hundreds of products to choose from, you can be confident that the ones featured on our Shop.Naturally.Curly pages are healthy, beneficial and yes, even affordable. In fact, all of the items here are twenty bucks and under.
So take a moment, skim the list and pick up a few items for your loved ones or even for yourself. To give products that will result in strong and beautiful hair is something that will truly be the gift that keeps on giving!
C’mon. Who doesn’t need a little bit of edge control, pretty much on a daily basis? Something that’s really cool about this particular brand is, since its infused with honey, your buddies won’t have to worry about this product drying their edges out. They can literally rock this out for 24-hours straight with no fly-aways or drama.
If there are some people in your life who swear by co-washing, treat them to this particular co-wash product. Aunt Jackie’s is a brand that is beloved by many naturalistas, and the flaxseeds that are in it are something that I can personally vouch for if you know some people who struggle with nourishing dry or brittle hair.
Some of my favorite items are what I call “multi-task products”. They are the things that serve more than one purpose. In walks, MYHoneyChild Shea Shampoo & Body Bar. It is so gentle—and natural—that you can use it on your body as well as your hair. What I particularly appreciate about this bar is it contains pure and simple ingredients; literally just plantain skins, palm kernels, agao bark, coconut oil and shea butter. That’s it.
I’m known to rock a blowout; this means that I’m also known to constantly have some thermal heat protectant in my possession. Without it, I’m pretty sure my hair would be full of split ends right about now. Anyway, if there are special people in your life who also like to use their hair dryer to stretch their curls, this product has the soothing hair humectant benefits of agave and the scalp healing benefits of lavender is one that they will love you for gifting them with it.
Everyone could use a good leave-in conditioner, right? Especially during this time of year when it’s freezing outdoors and there’s less humidity in the air to keep our curls moisturized. If you get this particular brand, your friends will adore you. That’s because, not only is it sulfate-free and paraben-free, groSecrets Leave-In Lotion contains some moisturizing must-haves including water, glycerin, shea butter, keratin and wheat protein.
Honey is one of our hair’s absolute favorite ingredients; that’s because it’s a humectant (which means it pulls moisture out of the air so that our hair won’t dry out). Manuka honey is even better because it has the ability to clean hair follicles and promote hair growth too. So, if you know someone who’s been looking for a product that will help to “set” their curls, this is one that they should try. The manuka honey will protect their hair as the custard-like texture will bring definition to their natural tresses.
Just a couple of days ago, while I was trying to style my hair, I couldn’t find my hair clips and that drove me absolutely up the wall! Moral to the story? Sometimes, it’s the little things that really can mean a lot. If any of your people have some length to their hair, they will not be mad at you in the least for filling up their stocking with some new hair clips. I promise you that.
One of the greatest challenges that comes with trying to obtain—and maintain—length retention is finding the gentle balance between how much moisture and how much protein our hair needs. For the most part, if you do a protein treatment every six weeks or so, you should be fine; ApHogee is one of the most popular brands to go with. I would be shocked if most of your “folks” had protein treatments lying around. Bless them by gifting them with one less thing to worry about.
Has someone in your world recently made the declaration that 2020 is going to be the year when they go from relaxed to natural locks? If so, they are going to need to use hair products that will help them to smoothly make the transition. Since single strand knots are kind of a given when it comes to natural dos, Soultanicals Knot Sauce Coil Detangler should be a staple when it comes to their hair regimen. Not only will it help to easily detangle their hair, but broccoli seed oil and coconut nectar will leave their hair feeling really soft as it helps them to retain length during the growing out process.
If you’ve heard (or read) somewhere before that you shouldn’t dry your hair with the same kind of towel that you would your body, that’s not an old wives’ tale or a myth; that is absolutely true. Between the fibers of standard towels and the excessive rubbing that a lot of us tend to do, that can actually tangle and potentially weaken our hair overtime. It’s actually better to either use an old T-shirt or something along the lines of this microfiber towel. It has a remarkable way of drying your hair, keeping your curls’ shape and decreasing frizz in the process. Definitely the kind of stocking stuffer that you should get for yourself, no one else. Happy Holiday Shopping, y’all!
