When it comes to hair products, tools and accessories to care for curly hair, sex is irrelevant. You know it if you are a male or female and you love your curls. You’ll use whatever you have to in order to give your hair the best.

Below you’ll find my recommended gifts for curly hair by category. Prices are not mentioned because they are always subject to change.

I. GIFT SETS

A curly hair gift set can contain myriad of items that cover the actual cleansing and conditioning of the hair to the styling of it. A collection of hair oils, especially precious oils like Argan oil is very nice too.

You can even assemble your own gift set by purchasing items across categories and gifting them in a large gift basket or gift bag. The possibilities are endless!

II. INDIVIDUAL CURLY HAIR PRODUCTS

Hair products formulated for those with curly hair make great gifts. Especially when you know the exact brand or ingredients your curly girl or guy loves to use. However, if you are buying for someone new to embracing their curly hair, the products you’ll find recommended below are tops.

Of all the gifts for curly hair you can buy in the category of hair products, conditioners are ones that curly-haired people (ladies and gents) would love. They are so beneficial for hydrating dry hair and ultimately preventing hair breakage.

This is because unlike stylers which can greatly vary based on the type of style being done, conditioners are universal. It doesn’t matter if you have wavy hair, curly hair or any curl type. Everybody needs them!

The conditioners you can buy include:

  • Leave-in conditioner
  • Deep conditioner
  • Specialty hair masks

If someone is on the Curly Girl Method, make sure none of the conditioners contain these ingredients:

  • Sulfates (unless you are buying a shampoo to help them clarify their hair to start the Curly girl Method)
  • Silicones
  • Parabens
  • Mineral oil
  • Waxes
  • Drying alcohols (isopropyl, denatured alcohol, ethanol, isopropanol, propanol, propyl alcohol, SD alcohol 40)

THE RECOMMENDATIONS


Conditioners



Oils


III. PREMIUM STYLING TOOLS

Of all the gifts I’d want to receive from someone, styling tools has to be tops for me personally. That’s because as a veteran at caring for my natural curls, I typically know what hair care products I like and always have them in abundance.

Styling tools however, are those items that I may or may not have. They are the necessary items that will help any curly to elevate their hair routine.

THE RECOMMENDATIONS

Why Take My Gift Buying Advice

As someone who has had naturally curly hair for over 20 years, I am very particular with the products and hair tools I use in and on my curls. It’s about a knowledge of what curly hair needs, plus the quality and efficiency of the products. You can’t have one without the other in my curly girl “handbook.”

Yes, there are products that may be effective for completing certain hair care routines. However, are they the best products? Will they cause curl damage with extended use?  It’s better to go with a higher quality (sometimes more costly) option than to settle for the cheaper.

That’s why the product gifts for curly hair recommended above were selected to be featured in this Curly Girl Gift Guide for 2023.

These gifts for curly hair can be used for gift giving year round. But, the holidays that come to mind at the writing of this guide are Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah.
