A COLLECTION OF SIMPLE GUIDES FOR YOUR HAIRCARE LIFESTYLES.

NaturAll's Holiday Gift Guide 2021

Happy Holidays, NaturAllistas! It’s that time of year where the days have gotten shorter and the air’s a little nippier. In the midst of transitioning into the new season, everyone’s also planning what gifts to give loved ones (and hopefully themselves!)

When holiday shopping, some gravitate towards the latest technology or newest fashions. Others go a more inexpensive route and go for candles, lotions, and perfumes. No matter what your tastes are, helping loved ones, or yourself, prioritize self-care is a gift that keeps on giving.

We at NaturAll Club think giving the gift of healthy hair is the perfect way to show your love for the naturals in your life. Below you’ll find a gift guide you can use to pick out the perfect gifts for the holidays; and don’t hesitate to pick out some out for yourself as well!

The New Natural

Have a younger sibling or cousin looking to embrace their natural curls? Or maybe you’re looking to start your natural journey this new year and have no clue where to start. No matter the experience level, our Hydrating Collection features a complete set of essentials including a sulfate-free shampoo, rinse-out conditioner, deep conditioner, curl custard, twisting paste, and oil. 

Made with Avocado and Kiwi, the collection delivers juicy hydration, making it perfect for those who are looking to try a style or those just interested in a quick wash and go…

Wanting to try a style? 

Our Hydrating AvoKiwi LOC Method 3-Step Recipe is a trio that will help to lock in moisture for your twist out, braid out, bantu knots, or any other style you wish to experiment with! With the Hydrating Moisturizer as your “L”, the Hydrating Oil Blend as your “O”, and the Hydrating Custard as your “C”, you can achieve the bounciest styles that last through the week. You can check out a step-by-step on the LOC Method here!

Looking for a quick fix? 

Some new naturals are just looking for the fastest and simplest way to keep their hair fresh and moisturized. For these naturals, the Hydrating AvoKiwi Wash & Go 6-Step Recipe is more suited to their needs. This bundle includes your wash day essentials (shampoo, conditioner, and a deep conditioner) with the addition of a leave-in conditioner, curl custard, and oil for providing moisture and sealing it in. 


For the Men in Your Life 

When it comes to men’s hair and self care, they rarely consider the importance of using quality products. As the natural community caters more to women, it’s easy for your father, brother, or special friend to forget about nurturing their curls. 

Whether it’s for their hair or beard, our Strengthening Jamaican Black Castor Oil Collection features two rich Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serums and a Strengthening Ice Cream Deep Conditioner Treatment.

Both Jamaican Black Castor Oils are packed with vitamins and nutrients that feed the scalp and promote healthy new growth. With light, subtle scents, the JBCO Growth Serums will also help to fortify the hair you already have, preventing it from breakage or physical damage!

The Original Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum pairs perfectly with the Original Dry Hair Solution Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioner with Lavender to condition the hair and nourish the scalp. You can find the bundle with these two products here!

Similarly, the Strengthening Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum is made to go with the Strengthening Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioner with Moringa-Monoi and Carrot and is great for those with weak and brittle hair. These two are wrapped up in a convenient bundle that you can find here!

Regularly deep conditioning their facial hair (and hair on their head) along with scalp massages will strengthen the hair’s follicles, making it more equipped to grow new, healthy strands. 

The Edge Artist

Natural hair in and of itself is a statement that can be personalized from person to person. Styling one's edges in detailed swoops and curves is a staple in the natural community and has always been a way to make your style stand out. Our Smoothing Edge Control Glazes not only lay down your edges and flyaways with a medium hold, but they also are pigmented to fill in your hair line for a fuller look. 

Made with Acai and Flaxseed (and available in Black or Brown), our superfood-packed Edge Control Glazes are moisturizing, flake-free, and perfect for sleek ponytails or protective styling. 

If you’re looking for a stronger hold with the appearance of fuller edges, the glazes can be used in combination with our Flaxseed Gel Edge Control in Extreme Hold to give you the perfect look! 

 

The 4C Natural

We know it can be difficult for our kinky-coily NaturAllistas to find products that work with their hair. Luckily, our Hydrating AvoKiwi 4C 4-Step Recipe was crafted with this in mind! Including a shampoo, deep conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and twisting paste, this bundle will work to hydrate, nourish, and moisturize 4C tresses whether they’re going to be styled or shaken out in a wash and go.

The Hydrating Shampoo is sulfate-free and won’t leave your coils feeling stripped and brittle. The Hydrating Deep Conditioner is the perfect combination of protein and moisture and is great for detangling your tresses. The Hydrating Leave-in Conditioner is light enough to where it doesn’t weigh the hair down, but substantial enough to where it provides the hair with the nutrients needed to remain moisturized and healthy. The Hydrating Twisting Paste goes a long way and works to define, stretch, and hold your coils. 

 

Those in Need of A Protein Boost

Since hair is made out of keratin, making sure you’re providing your hair with enough protein is essential in making sure it’s strong enough to resist breakage, split ends, and other physical damage. Getting an adequate amount of protein also allows the hair to retain moisture better, as weak hair has gaps in the structure, making it extremely easy for moisture to escape and evaporate from the strands.

From farm to freese, our Ice Cream Deep Conditioner Treatments are made with fresh avocados and are the perfect mix of protein and moisture. With a variety of flavors to choose from, every natural can target their pain points and pick the flavor most relevant to their needs. 

In addition to being packed with protein and moisture, the deep conditioners also help to smoothen the hair strands, which helps to reduce frizz and allow the hair to remain moisturized for longer. With consistent use, the deep conditioners can help to grow, strengthen, and repair your curls.

Which to choose?

Experiencing painfully dry hair that just keeps breaking off? The Original Dry Hair Solution is a formula we’ve had since the start of NaturAll and it will aid in reducing dryness while providing the hair with protein to fight against breakage.

Needing a moisture treatment that isn’t so protein-heavy? The Hydrating Ice Cream Treatment with Avocado and Kiwi is the best of both worlds. With the protein-rich avocado and juicy hydration of the kiwi, this deep conditioner has great slip, making it perfect for detangling and moisturizing dry hair.

The Strengthening Ice Cream Treatment with Moringa-Monoi and Carrot is packed with antioxidants and works to restore weak, brittle, and dry hair. This treatment is especially great for those looking to promote growth, as it contains Jamaican Black Castor Oil – a rich, nourishing ingredient that feeds the scalp and stimulates growth.

Have color-treated, heat-treated, or relaxed hair? The Repairing Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioner with Wheat and Argan works to repair the hair follicle (improving the hairs ability to grow in healthily) and protect your cuticles (against breakage or further damage). 

Transitioning to being natural and need to bring your curls out? Our Curl Defining Ice Cream Treatment with Acai and Flaxseed will help to revive and elongate your curls! Made with two superfoods, this yummy formula is deeply nourishing and provides great hydration.


For Those Who are Protein Sensitive

Even though the avocado is the bread and butter of our brand, we know some naturals need a lighter option for their delicate curls. If your hair becomes brittle, dry, or hard when using protein rich ingredients, like avocado, our Restoring Sea Moss and Aloe Jelly Recipe is the perfect alternative for you!

Avocado free and made with nourishing sea moss and hydrating aloe, the Restoring Recipe consists of a creamy shampoo, softening conditioner, defining styling cream, and restorative deep conditioner. None of these 4 products contain avocado, but they do help to repair the hair and restore your tresses to a healthier state. 

Looking for a sulfate-free, conditioning cleanser that won’t leave your hair dry and stripped? The Restoring Shampoo is the perfect product to moisturize the hair while giving the feeling you are conditioning it at the same time. This would be a good option for those who prefer a cowash or non-traditional sudsy shampoo.

The Restoring Conditioner is a nourishing followup to the shampoo, providing more strengthening power to fortify your tresses and reduce breakage. Just like the rest of the line, this is a good protein-free alternative to our Hydrating Conditioner with Avocado and Kiwi.

The Restoring Styling Cream works to define your curls without weighing them down, making it perfect for everyday styling and maintenance and a protein-free alternative to the Hydrating Leave-In Conditioner and Hydrating Moisturizer.

Being the only avocado-free deep conditioner, the Restoring Ice Cream Treatment with Sea Moss and Aloe Jelly is a great alternative to the other deep conditioners, especially the Repairing treatment!

 

For the Loc’d Naturals

Our Hydrating AvoKiwi Ultimate Locs 3-Step Recipe was crafted for our loc’d naturals to use for retwisting and styling. The trio consisting of a shampoo, twisting paste, and oil will hydrate and help to seal in all the yummy moisture from the avocado and kiwi infused products!

The Hydrating Ice Cream Treatment Deep Conditioner with Avocado and Kiwi is also a must-have for those whose locs are matured and in need of a deep moisture treatment. Smoothing this treatment into your locs after shampooing will help to hydrate the hair and help it maintain moisture throughout the week.

For the Scalp Scratchers

An itchy scalp is a pain point for lots of naturals, especially in the colder weather. Consistent scratching can lead to more flakes, irritation, and even infection. Whether you’re dealing with a causal case of itchiness or you have an actual condition, like dandruff, our Revitalizing CDB Line is the soothing solution for you.

Comprising a deep conditioner, hair and scalp serum, and a hair oil treatment, the CBD infused collection helps to bring dull and damaged curls back to life. Additionally, the CBD will also work to regulate your scalp. 

If your scalp is itchy and dry, then it may not be producing enough sebum, the skin's natural oil, to keep it moisturized. If your scalp is itchy and irritated (and secreting oils from the irritation points), it’s likely your scalp is overproducing sebum. Either way, the Revitalizing Hair and Scalp Serum with CBD is a nourishing neutralizer that will help to get the skin of the scalp back on track.

Looking for something for a more oil based solution (the serum is more liquidy in texture), the Revitalizing Hair Oil Treatment with CBD is the better option for you. Formulated to penetrate the hair strands and smooth the cuticle, the oil treatment will help to repair and moisturize the hair!

 

We hope this comprehensive gift guide helped you pick out some good finds. With our unbelievably fresh ingredients, the gift of healthy hair has never been so easy to give!
