Curly Hair Gifts for Every Budget that Never Miss

If you’re worried about getting the right gift for the curly in your life I don’t blame you. Most people with naturally curly hair can be particular about what they use and hesitant to try products outside of their routine. Lucky for you, I’ve been gifting curl products for over a decade and filled this curly gift guide with products that never miss.

Here’s a list of essential curly hair gift ideas that work for most hair types and budgets.

Curly Hair Gifts for Every Budget that Never Miss

1. Pattern Mist Spray Bottle

Using a continuous mist spray bottle to refresh my curls in the morning completely changed my hair routine. Originally, I used Curly Hair Solutions H2O water bottle, which has been featured on NaturallyCurly’s Editors’ Choice of list for several years. Now there are tons on the market at various prices. I like mixing a little leave-in conditioner to the water for added moisture in the winter.

3. Beard Balm

For the bearded person in your life, SheaMoisture’s Beard Balm is the perfect gift for anyone learning to groom their facial hair. I gifted this to my dad a few years ago, and to my surprise he has continued to buy and use it today. Shopping for dads is hard, but this beard balm has become a go-to gift.

4. JackWinn Pro Hair LumiGloss Clear

JackWinn Pro is my go to brand when I want “just left the salon” hair. The LumiGloss line offers intense hydration, balances porosity and heals the hair to prevent future breakage, while adding brilliant shine and depth without affecting hair color (in clear”>. This is my favorite post-color hair treatment, but it works for non-colored hair too. I use the LumiGloss Smoke to rid my blonde curly hair of brassiness, but I’ve also used the LumiGloss Champagne when I wanted warmer tones in the Winter. JackWinn Pro also offers LumiGloss with color deposits in Brunette, Red, and Honey.

6. K18 Leave-in Hair Mask

This repair mask is a personal favorite of mine on the list. K18 has become a regular part of my post-bleach routine to make sure my curl pattern bounces back and to prevent breakage. This leave-in mask has a patented peptide technology that works to repair damage from bleach, color, chemical services and heat in just 4 minutes. I’ve been using it for about 6 months in place of Olaplex and there’s a noticeable difference in the amount of strength and bounce to my hair after bleaching.

8. Silk Pillow Case

Give the gift of beauty sleep with a 100% silk pillowcase from Grace Eleyae. Silk pillowcases are a requirement in the natural hair routine to help prevent breakage and to wake up to tangle-free, frizz-free hair. Plus, silk pillowcases double as a skincare regimen by significantly reducing friction and absorbing less face cream than other materials.
