24/7 and 365 days a year, our mothers work hard to raise us to be the best women that we can possibly be. Show love for Mom and her natural hair by giving her a gift she will love throughout her journey. Consider one of these 5 inexpensive gifts.

Save mom the money and trouble of looking for the perfect detangling brush or comb. The Denman brush is the ultimate detangling brush for natural curlies and coilies. The Denman brush is composed of a soft rubber cushioned bottom that holds nylon bristles. This brush works through all those   tough knots and tangles, cutting down on mom’s time for detangling and gentle enough to work through thicker and longer hair. Available at Sally Beauty.
