Top 10 Holiday Gift Ideas for Every Natural

Subscribe | Facebook | Twitter
This holiday season, as we are out looking for the perfect gifts for all of our loved ones; what are your coils craving? Here are our Top 10 gift ideas:

1. Curlformers
We all love those beautiful 'Shirley Temple' curls! Curlformers are an easy way to achieve those spiral ringlets. With many different sizes for all lengths, and even a choice between Narrow or Wide, these do not require heat or much talent! Now offering a new SUPER LONG set of wide curlers, these can be found locally at SALLY'S Beauty Supply or online at ranging from $48.95-$73.95. 

2. Q-Redew
For those naturals who would love to treat themselves to a hair steamer, and lack the space, HERE IS THE ANSWER! The Q-Redew is a hand held steamer that can be used for not only deep conditioning, but is the perfect tool for refreshing those wash and go curls to achieve outstanding 2nd day hair! The Q-Redew at retails for $69.95, but they are currently offering a Holiday Special where you can choose one of three offers: a complimentary Curly Girl Handbook, a Jane Carter Solution Gift Pack, or you can get $10 off your Q-Redew purchase ($59.95).

3. Be Huetiful Steamer

Now, this has been a great gift idea for not only the holidays, but birthdays, anniversaries and the 'just because I deserve it' occasions. Notice the new box....THE MONROE SISTERS!! Our girl Chary Jay graced the cover for the past year and has passed the torch. This is the ultimate treat for those kinks, coils and curls especially during the winter months. At the Be Huetiful Steamer is selling for $116.95 with free shipping!

4. Flat Irons
Bliss Elements
Now, for us naturals who are not afraid of heat, a new flat iron will help add some versatility to your natural hair portfolio. There are so many different brands and styles of flat irons, that it can be overwhelming to choose the best one for you. Just know that protection from the heated styling tools is key! offers a great selection and reviews on many flat irons ranging from $60-$120. BaByliss Pro is a great brand with many different width options, for a reasonable price. For a local find, Bliss Elements has a great flat iron on their website or give them a call at 302-543-5469. Also available at Bliss Elements is their Whipped Shea Butter in different scents, such as Cucumber melon, Peppermint and Vanilla.

5. Natural Hair Reference Books

We can NEVER have too much information on the structure, growth, and maintenance of natural hair. Youtube is great, but if you are like me, you like to have something physical to reference sometimes. Some of my favorite book finds on are Better Than Good Hair (above) by Nikki Walton better known as CurlyNikki, If You Love It, It Will Grow by Dr. Phoenyx Austin and Coils & Curls The Hair Product Handbook by Nicole Harmon. These books are the perfect gift for a new natural, and range from $10-$20.

6. Alikay Naturals Holiday Box

 Our favorite Vlogger, BlackOnyx, has put together her favorite Alikay Naturals products, and is offering them as a beautiful Holiday Gift Set! For only $50 you can order a complete set of products; cleanser, conditioner, leave in, styler, moisturizer and her fabulous growth oil! All of Alikay Naturals products are 100% natural and 90% organic, and not to mention smell DELICIOUS! Check out her youtube, BlackOnyx77 to see she uses her products!

7. Curlmart.Com Gift Set

These gift sets range from $54.96 to $89.57, and 3 free samples come with every order placed.

8. Denman Brushes

The Denman Brush has been a staple for many naturals over the years. This holiday, treat your curls to a fresh, funky new version of the staple! At there are a wide variety of styles for the common hair tool. There is even a key chain Denman brush! With the zebra print, leopard print and even a chrome finish, they are sure to be the perfect stocking stuffer!

9. Hooded Dyer

With the cold weather, many of us do not like to walk around with wet hair. This is the perfect time to utilize a hooded dryer! Whether to deep condition, set your twists, curlformers, or bantu knots, a hooded dryer can save the day for many styles. When you are getting ready for those holiday parties and family dinners, ensure you achieve your best updo, and hottest twist out with this simple tool! Found at your local beauty supply store for about $30-$40, it makes for a great gift.

10. Hair Accessories

This is the season to flaunt some fabulous hair accessories!! Why not add some spruce to your 'fro during these dark, cold days! Walk into that Christmas party and let your HAIR steal the show, like the bow in the picture above!

Another great accessory to add to your stocking this year is Hairfinity Vitamins. Retailing at $24 for a 1 month supply at

Haute Natural Holiday Hair


'Tis the season for festive 'fros, Christmas coils and New Year naturals.  Now that December has just nestled its way in, it's time to prepare our natural tresses for a season of holiday celebration.


Lovely Low-Do

We love this low-do with festive flower accent piece.  Our suggestion would be to swap it out for a real, live poinsettia to add holiday glitz.  This style is perfect for our long tresses naturals that want to protect their ends during the winter.


Christmas Curls


You can't go wrong with curlformers.  MahoganyCurls from YouTube is rocking them right here.  For a refined, polished look style on wet hair ... for a fuller look, style on blown out hair.  Leave them out or pull them up for a Curlformers updo.


TWA Dazzle 

For our gals who just BC or rock their tresses low, there's still room for funky festive fro hair this holiday season.  Add a glitz glam bow or jewel embezzled headband this New Year's Eve and hit the town.

Ledisi Locs

We are absolutely here for all things Ledisi and her locs.  Have you seen her most recent video, I Blame You? Honey ... she SLAYS.  Not only is her body newly thin and trim, but this loc updo is doin' it!


 The Nutcracker Ballerina Bun 


High buns are our favs.  Their clean, classic and chic.  Jazz it up with a curly bang with a few loose tendrils on the side and back.  Slick down those edges with our favorite by Curls - Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste. 


Snowball Bantus

Add some texture and shape to your natural this season with bantu knots.  Gorgeous for our naturalistas with color. Fits every hair length.
