With the holidays quickly approaching; like seriously, it’s right around the corner! I know a lot of you may be stressing at the idea of what to get the curly girl in your life; sometimes there can be way too many hair products to choose! And once you do decide, how do you know that you’re getting the right one for their specific hair type or texture? Well, I’m here to help!
As a long-time curly girl, who was quite the product junkie at the beginning of my journey, I’d like to think I know a thing or two about what to pick up and what to leave on the shelf.
Whether you’re shopping for a newbie who may not even know what to get for herself or a long-time curlfriend, I’ve got you covered!
1. Grace Eleyae’s Satin-Lined SLAP Cap
If you’ve never heard of a SLAP Cap, you’re missing out! Not only is it lined with satin for the protection of our amazing curls, but it’s also fashionable enough to be worn outside when you’re in between styles, deep conditioning, or just want to have a lazy hair day! Two-in-one! Purchase here:
2. Beauty Water Shower Purification System
Now, this, this I’ve never had any personal experience with; but I do know that hard water is a friend to no curly girl! This filtration system efficiently removes the copper and lead from tap water, giving your hair the moisture it deserves. And for $78 it’s pretty light on your pockets as well! Purchase here:
This little device works wonders! Especially if you have bad second-day hair like me. It’s a hand-held steamer that allows you to rejuvenate, stretch and moisturize yesterday’s curls in a matter of minutes. And since it’s only steam, you can ensure that your hair will remain in good hands and dry to the touch, so there’s no extra “drying time.” Who wouldn’t love that?! Purchase here.
4. DevaCurl Hair Diffuser
Does your curly girl love a good wash n’ go but doesn’t always have the extra time it takes to air dry? No worries, Deva Curl’s got you covered! The unique 360 airflow diffuser allows air to surround the entire curl, even the root; enhancing the curl and drying her hair faster than any traditional dryer ever could! Not to mention it gives you some pretty serious body and volume! Purchase here.
5. As I Am Long & Luxe Product Line
I’m not going to lie, ‘As I Am’ has quickly become my favorite natural hair line (sorry, Shea Moisture), and they’ve earned every coin of mine! Their newest line, Long & Luxe, centers around growing, strengthening, and repairing your curly girl’s hair with every use. And it smells so good! Your curly girl is sure to love this entire line. Who doesn’t want stronger, longer coils? Purchase line here:

6. A Brand-New Denman Brush
Why I didn’t put this at the top of the list, I do not know. The Denman Brush is the Holy Grail staple product in every curly girl’s collection that I know. It detangles, smooths the cuticle, and defines the curl with little to no effort. It’s amazing! And for only $20 it would make the perfect stocking stuffer this year! Purchase here:

I hope this list (the perfect list, haha) got your gift-giving juices flowing, and you’re already on the Amazon website, or on your way to your nearest Target to find at least one of these! The curly girl in your life will love you forever once she unwraps one of these! Happy Holidays, and happy shopping to you all!
