It is officially the holiday season; white sheets of snow covering the streets, twinkling lights brightening up the cold nights, corny Christmas movies that you can’t stop binge watching on Netflix, and……..and only in 2020, Covid-19 surges (stay safe out there). But the most anticipated event of the season is gift giving and receiving; unwrapping those presents brought to you by Santa, or your mail man (I mean they’re kinda the same right?) and eagerly finding what you wanted all year but couldn’t get around to buying was gifted to you by someone in your life.
This is the time when we celebrate each other and our loved ones, which is so crucial this year with the physical distance between most of us. The 2020 holiday season is probably the most important time to show each other that we matter, that we’re loved and that we have a support system of people around us.
And you already knew this right? You also know that gift giving, or I should say, gift receiving, is a lot of people’s love language, so it’s been in the back of your mind to put some money aside and make sure you get those gifts for your loved ones. But you’re also that friend who waits until the last minute to start shopping, forgetting about the delays with shipping, the grueling lines and stress of it all, because let’s be honest, you’re also not the only one who waited so long to buy gifts.
Well no worries, we have some options for you, whether you’re buying a gift for your brother, mother, best friend or boss ( trying to get that promotion I see) NaturAll is a one stop shop for all. Our products are all natural and made with integrity so not only will you be giving quality gifts this year, but you will also feel good that you are now a part of a community that wants to help you provide the best care to your hair and your loved one’s hair as well.
We’ve come up with an ultimate gifting guide that will help you buy the best gifts for all of the different types of people in your life!
In Need Of A Protein Treatment
Did your friend ever tell you “I need more protein,” and you gave her a chicken or peanut butter sandwich not realizing that she was talking about her hair? We’ve all been there and sis we got you!!!!
Everyone needs protein in their hair. Your hair, just like your body, needs protein - one of the 4 building blocks of life. Protein helps to strengthen your hair strands giving life to limp and brittle hair strands and preventing breakage and split ends. But be weary of too much protein because it can cause your hair to become extremely dry and might have the opposite effect.
So what should you get this friend? Well, any one of our deep conditioners would work. NaturAll’s Ice Cream Treatment deep conditioners all have avocados as a protein base. They are packaged into one-use and multiple-use packages with ingredients so fresh that they must be frozen until used. What makes them really special and worth the price is that you’ll see avocado (Persea Gratissima) is actually the first ingredient in our deep conditioners, then water, so you’ll definitely be getting the thick and creamy deep conditioners with all of the yummy benefits packed into a pouch. This is definitely a bang for your buck and the gift recipient will enjoy a gift that keeps giving, strong and healthy hair.
We offer 5 different Ice Crean Treatment Deep Conditioners , so it might be a bit overwhelming to choose which to gift to your friend. Honestly, all of our deep conditioners will be a treat to their tresses, but if you’re looking for a bit more protein or one that is more similar to a concentrated protein treatment, we recommend the Repairing Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioner. This deep conditioner contains the avocado base with added wheat to give it double the protein! If your friend has a weekly or biweekly regimen, you can buy them a couple at a time and they can freeze it until they are ready to use it, or you can even subscribe to the item so they receive it every month!
For The Guy In Your Life
Your brother, husband, boyfriend, friend - we all find it extremely difficult to buy gifts for the guys in our life. Let’s be real, we can’t keep buying them ties, watches and toolkits for every holiday and birthday. This year, let them know that their hair matters too. Check out our recommendation for beard and hair care:
Our Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioners work well for all hair types and lengths, especially for the guys who are trying to either grow their hair long or maintain their natural curls. Get them their own so they don’t use your stuff anymore and tell them they can use it on their beards too!
We offer several hair and scalp oils that work well on beards, as well. If they are looking for hair growth, we recommend either our Strengthening Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum with morina-monoi and carrot or our Original Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum with lavender and Castor Oil. Jamaican Black castor oil is known to have properties that promote hair growth while also sealing in moisture. Make sure they use it on their scalp a couple of times a week!
If they are looking for just a regular beard oil, we recommend our Hydrating Oil Blend with Avocado and Kiwi, a lightweight oil that also seals in moisture and leaves hair looking shiny and healthy.
We recommend our Revitalizing Hair and Scalp Serum, Revitalizing Hair Oil Treatment from our Revitalizing Collection found on NaturallKitchen.com. These are both lightweight serums and oils that are perfect for those who are just getting into experimenting with different kinds of oils and products for their hair!
If you’re looking for an oil and deep conditioning bundle, which we personally think would be the perfect gift, we recommend our Original Lavender Growth Serum and Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioner Bundle with Lavender and Castor Oil or our Strengthening Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Moringa-Monoi and Carrot Bundle.
If the guy(s) in your life have locs, we recommend our AvoKiwi Ultimate Locs 3-Step Recipe . This bundle includes our Hydrating Shampoo with Avocado and Kiwi which is perfect for removing product build up without stripping the hair from it’s natural sebum. It lathers extremely well so you know you’re getting a good wash, but it doesn’t leave the hair feeling like it
has been stripped from everything. This bundle also includes our Hydrating Oil Blend with Avocado and Kiwi, a perfect blend of powerful oils that work well on the scalp and hair, and he can use it on his beard as well. Lastly, the bundle includes Hydrating Twisting Paste with Avocado and Kiwi, a perfect product for retwisting locs. This paste is not waxy and works well to add shine to locs without weighing them down. All of these three products will work wonders for the loc’s guy in your life.
Are you looking to convince your man to drop the 3 in 1 body wash, conditioner, and shampoo? We recommend our smooth and lathering Hydrating Shampoo with Avocado and Kiwi to give him that clean feeling without completely stripping his hair. Then he can follow up with our Hydrating Conditioner with Avocado and Kiwi and add all the good nutrients back into his hair.
Booked And Busy
Do you have that one friend who lives off of wash and gos because that’s all they have time for? Well we offer an entire line for them, the The Hydrating AvoKiwi Wash & Go 6-step Recipe with Avocado and Kiwi. This line includes our Hydrating Shampoo with Avocado and Kiwi, Hydrating Conditioner with Avocado and Kiwi, Hydrating Ice Cream Treat Deep Conditioner with Avocado and Kiwi , Hydrating Leave-in Conditioner with Avocado and Kiwi, Hydrating Custard with Avocado and Kiwi and Hydrating Oil Blend with Avocado and Kiwi.
This bundle includes all of the products she’ll need for the perfect wash and go and she’ll definitely thank you for it!
All About The Edges
Edges are a must for this friend. They will not leave their house unless their edges are laid down and you also tried to get a couple of tutorials from them, but you still can’t manage to get it right.
For this friend we have a couple of recommendations. For our edge controls, we recommend either our Flaxseed Edge Control Black with Yogurt or our Flaxseed Gel Edge Control with Flaxseed and Yogurt. They both deliver impressive hold and amazing shine, minimize the look of grays and cover up thinning edges.
If they’re trying to grow back their edges, we recommend our Strengthening Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum with morina-monoi and carrot or Original Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum with lavender and Castor Oil, which are packed with powerful ingredients that promote hair growth.
Flaking is very normal and happens to almost everyone at least once in their lifetime.
Flaking comes from your scalp when it lacks moisture. Dry scalp can mean you’re not moisturizing your scalp enough or the cold and dry weather is irritating your skin cells to dry and shed faster than usual.
Dandruff is a bit different; it’s a condition caused by seborrheic dermatitis, a condition that leaves skin oily, red and scaly. It is caused by the fungus malassezia and it can be found anywhere on your body that has oil glands.
So what do you buy for this friend?
We recommend our Strengthening Ice Cream Deep Conditioner Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Carrot, and Moringa Monoi. This deep conditioner and oil bundle soothes and calms the scalp, calming any itchiness and ultimately helps with dandruff, or seborrheic dermatitis. It also strengthens your roots for healthy hair growth!
We also recommend our Revitalizing Hair and Scalp Serum infused with CBD. CBD is great for calming any itchy and irritated scalp and works wonders for those who struggle with dandruff. It also promotes hair growth and you can apply the oil to your hair to seal in moisture.
Protective styles are what a lot of people default to during the winter months. We also might know someone that only wears protective styles throughout the entire year. For them, we recommend our Hydrating Shampoo with Avocado and Kiwi and Hydrating Conditioner with Avocado and Kiwi. They provide great slip which helps to detangle hair that might tangle up when it’s in protective style and cleans hair from product build up.
For those who deep conditioner between styles and wear braids that pull and tug on their edges.We recommend our Strengthening Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum with morina-monoi and carrot or Original Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum with lavender and Castor Oil.
New Color, Who Dis?
We all know someone in our life who loves to experiment with color, today it’s blonde and tomorrow it’s green. You support their creativity and self expression, but you also worry about how damaging the constant coloring might be to their hair. They might also complain to you about how dry, brittle, and sometimes even damaged their hair can be. In this case, the perfect product goes a long way. Here’s what we recommend:
Our Repairing Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioner is perfect for color treated hair. The extra protein helps to fortify brittle and dry hair while the argan oil and other ingredients give penetrate the hair shaft to give added nutritions and repair damage that might be caused by color treatment
Our Hydrating Shampoo with Avocado and Kiwi is perfect for cleaning color treated hair as it does not strip away the color. It also works to hydrate dry hair while cleansing.
It is very important to continually moisturize your hair when it is color treated as your hair is more prone to being dry and brittle. We recommend using our Hydrating Leave-in Conditioner with Avocado and Kiwi. Tip: Apply the leave-in conditioner daily to damp hair to refresh.
Natural Hair Fanatic
This friend was hip to the movement before it even started. They taught you everything they know, and tried almost every product out there. So why not treat them with the Full Hydrating AvoKiwi Collection with Avocado and Kiwi? We’re sure they love it, and it comes with our Essential Styling Kit. These products are also great for that friend that just joined the natural hair care community. They might have had permed hair all their lives and just did the big chop, or they just started to seriously take care of their curls and coils. They know very little but are very interested in learning more.
