Ten gift ideas for Naturalistas

Being part of the struggle for and against shrinkage, I’ve created this last-minute Christmas stocking filler list. All ten items are easily available, affordable and will have most Naturalistas impressed by your thoughtfulness…

The Perfect Co-wash is a dreamy creamy curl defining conditioner that is perfect for a wash and go do – R 150 from The Perfect Hair online store.450g-Unrefined-Shea-butter

Shea butter is one hair products that all Natural ladies swear by – R 180 gets you 450 grams from Natural Moisture.
soil-essential-oils-rosemaryLavender, Rosemary and Bergamot Essential Oils are beneficial for healthy hair growth – pay R 200 for all 3 at Faithful to Nature.

water bottleA miniture Water Spray Bottlesfor hair is a great tool to help moisturize an Afro and Dreadlocks – R 10 from Dischem.

CombsDenman combs are the best for ethnic hair in my books, they seriously minimize hair breakage – R35, Dischem.

turbineThis Sorbet Microfibre Head Turban looks much better than a t-shirt and I find it to be just as efficient – R 55.95, Clicks.

InvisibobbleHair accessories can turn bad hair days into fab ones. If your Naturalista friend has long hair an Invisibobble, like this R 80 one from RetailBox, might just be a new addition she is unconsciously looking for. Otherwise, check out your local traders for traditional beaded headbands. Throw in a pair of matching earrings or bracelet and make a set.
53a04c2c969e0_-_cos-02-curling-rods-deCurling rods, especially the flexible ones are my fave and they offer a much needed break from Bantu Knots – R 24.95, Dischem.

Shower-caps-xlShower caps are like socks, they mysteriously disappear. Look for funky colours, good quality materials and a descent fit – R 29.95, Dischem.

black_silk_satin_pillowcase_set_1024x1024Satin Pillows are perfect for those of us that do not like sleeping with doeks on and are kinder to the skin too – R 100, Natural Moisture.

Frankly, if you ask me, these gifting ideas are perfect for anytime of the year, so yeah, be generous and give abundantly.

With love and Christmas well wishes,
Meka-O
