Happy Holidays Black girl with natural hair! I may be early, but if you are all about getting all the black girls on your list their very best present, you need to start early! This annual gift guide has helped so many newbies find the best of the best in natural hair and I am always urged to do it earlier and earlier!
This year we will be focusing on healthy hair. Holiday gifts are always fun, practical and functional and we want all naturals to be rocking healthy hair. We can do this by giving every natural on our list (including ourselves) gifts that give their hair what it needs and wants.
Black Girl Holiday Gift Sets
Gift sets are always fun to give and receive and many of our favorite brands have put together some great ones! It’s all about hair health this year for gift sets so we picked a few we thought were the best!
I want to share this amazing holiday gift set just for us! The DEVACURL Holiday Super Curly Care Kit is a customized, limited edition with everything you need, want, love and hope to give this holiday season with several of their natural hair faves.
This kit contains:
The super curly cleanser-conditioner duo No-Poo Decadence (12.0 oz) and One Condition Decadence (12.0 oz), for for maximum moisture
Wash Day Wonder (1.5 oz), a silky, light-weight pre-cleanse detangler
Follow up with Leave-In Decadence (3.0 oz) made with Pequi oil for curl retention and Chufa milk for intense moisture
SuperCream (1.5 oz) coconut oil infused styler provides silky moisture, definition and curl control.
Another natural hair line that we love is Cantu and they wanted to help your winter hair this holiday season. Their Cantu Winter Care & Repair Holiday Set is all about strengthening your dry, brittle hair.
The gift sets comes with their popular Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment (minimizes breakage before it starts and encourages strong growth), Leave-in Conditioning Cream (mends split ends, reduces frizz and protects hair from heat damage), and the Tea Tree & Jojoba Hair & Scalp Oil (replaces vital oils revealing stronger, healthier hair with a natural shine while conditioning the scalp)
A great sign that products work, is that they are best sellers. Briogeo created a gift set with their top selling products and for a great price. The BRIOGEO Hair-O-Scopes Brightest Stars Bestsellers is four-piece set featuring the best of Briogeo to help hydrate and revitalize strands for healthy-looking hair. You know how much we need moisture in our strands and this set does not disappoint.
The kit features a full-size of the bestselling Don’t Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Mask and minis of Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo, Rosarco™ Blow Dry Perfection and Heat Protectant Creme™, and Rosarco Milk™ Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray.
Less than a gift set and really just a great bundle, this holiday season would be brighter for any natural on your list if you got them this Shea Moisture Strengthen Grow & Restore Combo Bundle. I LOVE this line and use this shampoo more than any other. The combo includes Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo, Leave-In Conditioner, Conditioner, and Treatment Masque all for under $45! That’s a steal and all you need to do is throw this in a basket and add a bow.
Black Girl Hair Accessories
I keep this on the list every year and for good reason. The Thermal Hair Care Hot Head Deep Conditioning Heat Cap is my go-to for increasing the benefit of a deep conditioning treatment that I make sure to do on every wash day. I have been using the Hot Head Deep Conditioning Heat Cap now for a few years and it really makes all the difference in the world. It’s filled with renewable flax seed which will generate heat when warmed in the microwave. It’s reusable and is the most environmentally friendly way to deep condition your hair with heat at home for under $30!
When it comes to keeping our hair moisturized, frizz and damage free, how we dry our hair is important. That’s why I only dry my hair with the Hair RePear Ultimate Hair Towel. This anti-frizz Absorbent premium cotton towel will enhance your healthy hair without whisking away the moisture it so badly needs. I have two and my sister and daughter have a few as well. We love them and use them all the time as we always air dry our hair. Great for plopping, wrapping hair up or just squeezing out excess water without disturbing the curls. This amazing towel is under $20 and a great gift for every black girl you know!
For all my black girl hat lovers, I had to add the amazing CurlCap Satin Baseball Hat for every black girl who couldn’t fit her massive hair in a traditional baseball hat. The Curl Cap is a satin-lined baseball cap that is backless to allow your hair to flow freely. I LOVE this hat and made sure to get one as soon as I had the chance.
I’m not one for hair dryers but I do know what most naturals love, believe and use. The Karmin Salon Series Ionic Ultralight Hair Dryer is so popular right now and there’s a great reason for that. A unique feature of the Karmin Salon Series is it’s Electronic Ion Generator which helps to dry your hair up to 70% faster with less damage to create a long lasting shine and smooth texture. With the flip of a switch you can choose between negative or positive ions and the system generates over 300 million! This allows complete flexibility for your styling needs (great for frizz/humidity control). The heater features pure ceramic coils and the nozzle itself is even coated with ceramic to provide far infrared heat which will dry you hair while helping to maintain the the hair’s moisture balance. This will create much healthier looking, less damaged hair.
This is the ONLY hair dryer that several of my readers had to school me on. They let me know how amazing this hair dryer is and while pricey, ($189.95), this is the perfect time to get one for yourself or for that special natural on your holiday list.
Black Girl Apparel
We love natural hair clothing and accessories and no gift guide would be complete without sharing some of the best natural hair apparel and accessories that we love rocking with our natural hair. I’ve got a couple of shops but sharing some others that need to be mentioned. You cannot go wrong with opting for tees, hoodies and mugs from my shop, Seriously Natural Boutique. We’re all about uplifting and empowering Black women with a classic style that’s effortless and freeing and most tees are around $25.

All tees are under $25 and expertly lets everyone know exactly what’s on your mind. You are gonna find too many shirts from this shop!
