Oftentimes we overlook our best CURLfriend...our hairstylists! They hook us up with fly hairstyles, they care for our tresses and they are there for us, listening and offering valuable advice. Why not show our appreciation by getting them a gift that keeps on giving! Dr. Yolanda Lenzy is a board certified cosmetologist and dermatologist who has put together a comprehensive guide to teach hairstylists how to identify signs of hair loss which is an epidemic with African American women. This is a must-read for any hairstylist so why not empower her or him to be able to tackle any problems in the early stages!
Miss Jessie's Bogo Sale
You know any Naturalisa gift guide wouldn't be complete without having some natural hair products featured!

Haus of Swag & The Doll Haus Project
Oftentimes Naturalistas are thought of as having to look and dress in one particular way which totally opposite of what it means to be natural. Being natural represents the idea of being free to be yourself. Founder of Haus of Swag, Toni Scott-Grant, knows this to be true and embodies this idea in her line of fashion and accessories. Not only can we wear fashion that represents us but now with the Doll Haus project we can have dolls that are customized in our imagery and our aesthetic which is very much needed...not only for young girls growing up but for the little girls inside of us who never had this level of representation!! Haus of S.W.A.G. stands for Sisters With A Grind and is representative of women owning their power. Every one of her products are packaged with care so spread love...its the Brooklyn way!
We hope you enjoyed our guide and have given you some gift ideas that will show how much you care! Let us know if you've brought and tried any of the gifts ideas on our list...we'd love to hear about it!
