To help inspire and simplify your holiday shopping, here is a list of some of the best gift ideas for men and women with dreadlocks.
Naturalista Gift Idea #1: Love My Locs Dreadlocks Essential Kit & Gift Set for Dreadlock Maintenance

There’s also “The Original Ouchless Snagless InstaLoc” Hair Tool for dreadlock maintenance in the set, and it all comes in a natural linen reusable drawstring bag with a stylish Love My Locs graphic.
Natural Hair Gift Idea #2: Satin Pillowcases
Give him or her a New Year of less lint in their locs! Satin pillowcases are recommended for anyone with locs, as they produce much less lint than cotton and polyester. Using a satin pillowcase can even eliminate the need to wear a scarf to bed. You can purchase a satin pillowcase in a neutral, go-with-anything color or get that special someone two pillowcases to have one to put on the bed and one to swap out on washday.
Gift Ideas for the Curly Girl #3: Hair Butter
Keeping locs perfectly hydrated is important to ensuring that they look their best, and hair butters are the ideal way to provide that much-needed moisture to natural hair. Shea butter makes a great stocking stuffer for the holidays, particularly when you choose one that’s fair trade and made from natural, nourishing ingredients. You can add to the gift by picking up a clarifying shampoo for cleansing and placing both essential hair care products in a stylish gift bag.
Dreadlocks Gift Idea #4: Styling Accessories
Anyone with locs will be thrilled to open a box and find an assortment of loc accessories waiting to be discovered. You can purchase a ready-made gift set for locs, or you can make your gift one of a kind by creating your own set. Get some open-ended ponytail holders, loc cuffs and loc ties and place them inside of a reusable container that the lucky recipient of your gift can use for storage.
Natural Hair Beauty Gift Idea #5: Natural Oil Gift Set
Complete your natural honey’s hair care routine with the best of what nature has to offer! Give that special person on your list a set of natural oils like argan, coconut and shea to wish them healthy locs in the New Year. Not only can the recipient of your gift use these oils for conditioning their locs, but they can also apply them to their skin as a moisturizer, use them as massage oils and add them to the tub to transform an ordinary bath into a spa experience.
