8 Luxe Products You Need For A Very Hairy Christmas

Shopping

At this point in the game, I've redirected my excitement for Christmas from the expectation of gifts to just enjoying the season and all that it offers.


(Christmas music's been bumping since late October. Just sayin'.)

Now, the few gifts that I do get are all things that will make adulting a smoother process on a daily basis. And you know what? The adult in me gets ecstatic when I open that new electric spiralizer (family, if you're reading this *wink, wink*). I could think of a million teeny-weeny things that would make incredible stocking stuffers, and since big chopping my hair this year, my whole wish list of hair products have, without hesitation, been added to the list of valuable stuffers that one could gift me via stocking.

However, if it's your generosity that's on ten and you think I deserve a little more than a couple travel sized Shea Moisture products plus a few sample size packets of Miss Jessie's in my little red bag, then you should maybe definitely keep reading to check out this list of fancy fly hair necessities that will make for a very hairy Christmas and an even happier new year.

Add these 8 luxe gifts to your wish list and hopefully someone who loves you will bless you:

Caramel Silk Pillowcase by Slip, $85.

Protecting our hairdo is king to the culture of black womanhood. We turn down shower sexin order to do so, we have sex with our scarves on and then wake up with a knot the size of an egg trying to make sure that our scarves are secured. You do all of this only to wake up and your scarf is sitting at the top of your pillow, sitting pretty and clearly opposed to serving its purpose. Well, with this amazingly silky satin pillowcase you can throw the whole scarf away (on days when you don't need it to hold a swoop in place, of course).

Slipsilk has been developed to perfection over a decade with the highest grade (6A) of mulberry silk, "with a thickness of 22 mome." Now, I don't know what that means but damn it I'm sold. Sleeping on this pillowcase feels like sleeping on a miniature bed of clouds and with my natural hair, I don't even need to wear a scarf.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
