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.
Shea butter is one hair products that all Natural ladies swear by – R 180 gets you 450 grams from Natural Moisture.
Lavender, Rosemary and Bergamot Essential Oils are beneficial for healthy hair growth – pay R 200 for all 3 at Faithful to Nature.
A miniture Water Spray Bottlesfor hair is a great tool to help moisturize an Afro and Dreadlocks – R 10 from Dischem.
Denman combs are the best for ethnic hair in my books, they seriously minimize hair breakage – R35, Dischem.
This Sorbet Microfibre Head Turban looks much better than a t-shirt and I find it to be just as efficient – R 55.95, Clicks.
Hair 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.
Curling rods, especially the flexible ones are my fave and they offer a much needed break from Bantu Knots – R 24.95, Dischem.
Shower caps are like socks, they mysteriously disappear. Look for funky colours, good quality materials and a descent fit – R 29.95, Dischem.
Satin 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,
