Afrobella’s Holiday Favorites Giveaway #5 – Beautiful Curls Gift Baskets for Kinky or Wavy Hair!

In case you missed it — giveaway #4 is for Facebook fans only. Click to join!

Around this time of year it’s a beautiful thing to be given a gift — but it’s even more beautiful to be the gift giver. I reached out to some of my favorite brands to arrange special holiday giveaways for Afrobella readers, and I hope you love the products as much as I do! Fifth on the holiday giveaway list? The Beautiful Curls Holiday Gift Basket.

Beautiful Curls hair products

My hair is getting longer and the weather is cold and dry. Not a great combination for natural tresses that tend to get matted together if you wait more than a week for a thorough detangling. Sometime in mid-fall, I got a beautiful package in the mail that helped to solve my seasonal hair blues. Beautiful Curls by Alaffia is a nourishing, creamy, shea butter based hair care line that offers moisture to hair that’s curly to kinky, wavy to curly, or even for babies and up!

I’ve been using the curly to kinky variety and the Curl Activating Shea Butter Shampoo and Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment have been great for keeping my hair detangled and moist when I let my hair get to the point of no return. The shampoo, conditioner, and curl activating cream are my favorites thus far. I will admit that I don’t love the smell of the Shea and Coconut Hydrating Curl Oil but when my hair looks super parched, it helps to replenish my gloss.

For the holidays Beautiful Curls has been selling beautiful Alaffia handwoven African grass baskets filled with hair products especially chosen for your texture. And now the kind folks of Beautiful Curls are offering FOUR baskets to lucky Afrobella readers!!

How do you enter, how do you win?

Leave me a comment telling me what your hair texture is like (curly to kinky? Or wavy to curly?) and tell me which of the Beautiful Curls products you’re most looking forward to trying, and why.

This contest will be open until December 27 to contestants within the US, so you have lots of time over the holiday week to enter (and hopefully win!)

Thanks to the Alaffia Beautiful Curls for this opportunity — click here to follow Beautiful Curls on Twitter and Beautiful Curls on Facebook!

Good luck and MERRY CHRISTMAS, bellas!

  18. Hello Afrobella,
    I am so overjoyed to see these giveaways you’re offering. I am a college grad who has yet to find a job so my soon-to-be 1year of transitioning as been done with the same products used when I was relaxed. Other than Herbal Essence shampoo, I can’t afford to buy anything with no income.
    My hair texture is curly to kinky (mostly kinky). I would love EVERY product in the curly to kinky category.
    The Shea Butter Curl Activating Shampoo would definitely help me get through the process of washing my scalp and some product residue very well without stripping my hair of natural oils.
    The Shea Butter Curl Activating Leave-In Conditioner, I would love to have something in my hair that will leave moisture and help enhance my curl pattern. I have a few curls so this will help with the other confused natural strands.
    The Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment would help repair my strands with the stress of being half relaxed, half natural. My hair needs this to keep from breaking everyday, the damage of shrinkage and some amts of shedding.
    Shea Butter Curl Activating Cream this would definitely help me get the twist-out results I stress over and never receive. I currently hate twist-outs and braid outs but hopefully this will help me get the results everyone else gets.

    I have very curly hair and I think that the “Shea-Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment” would best suit my hair type & needs; curly hair has a tendency to be dry…

    For myself, i have kinky hair, But that is not the end of the story. The back of my hair appears to have less kinks than the rest of my hair. The front of my hair looks strait but is kinky at the same time…:/(I don’t know either) The middle is thin and the middle back is where it is its most kinkyiest, but thats my favorite hair texture throughout my whole head. With all the crazyness in my head, I still love my hair.

    I would LOVE to try the Curl Nurturing System for Babies and up, the entire line. This is because the ingredience are great. One of them are said to be an anti-cancer agent! And i figure, if it is good for a child, then its good for me too.

  63. musiclova90 says:

    i have Nigerian kinky/curly hair and I love it. It’s had it’s up and downs and while i’ve put it through a lot with tight braids, expired perms, BCs, and what have you, it’s still stubbornly beautiful. I would be interested in trying the Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment because I’ve read about the wonderful benefits of shea butter live in the Northeast and the weather has no love for my natural hair

  64. ErikaRenae says:

    I have curly to kinky hair and very dry. So that is why I am looking so forward to trying the Shea butter deep conditioning treatment. This is my first winter being natural and it is a lot harder than it looks to maintain luster and shine on my natural locks.

  65. Hello bella!
    Like so many other Afrobellas on this website, I’ve got a few different types of curls on this crazy head of mine but I guess it would fall under the curly-kinky side of things. I’ve been stuck in a rut with my hair and so I was really excited to learn about this giveaway. My hair just feels like it’s being a bit stubborn this winter season and it would be great to not only give it some lovin’ with the Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment, but to revamp my hair care routine with the Beautiful Curls system.
    Happy Holidays!

  70. I’d love to try the curl activating cream. My hair is kinky-curly.

  73. I have kinky and curly hair. I look forward to trying the deep conditioning treatment because my hair is dry from getting frequent blowouts.

  74. I want to share my testimonial on how Beautiful Curls has truly made my hair get noticed.

    I started using Beautiful Curls Shea Butter Curl Activating Cream this spring when I was down in Austin Texas for SXSW. I was doing last minute errands before the trip and the place where I get my hair styling product was completely out of stock. I headed over to Whole Foods and a staff person encouraged me to try it. They said they’d seen wonderful results. The jar was about $11 and I could return it if I didn’t like it (great return policy at Whole Foods!). Well I tried it and immediately loved the smell of it! It contains no water so after washing and conditioning my hair (I have tight curls), I put on the Curl Activating Cream and twisted my hair. It was around this time I also got a blow dryer with a diffuser and all I can say is wow!

    I get compliments on a daily basis now about my hair. I’ve had people come up to me at restaurant, in the city, on planes and even at the post office complimenting me on my curls!

    One thing I especially like is that this product doesn’t weigh my hair down or make it sticky. It smells great, is touchable and controls frizz. Now that I’m doing the “no poo” program which includes a low sudsing shampoo from Jessicurl and weekly washing, my hair style is low maintenance but high on the fabulous scale.

    Afrobella made a great video on how to put up curly hair at night in pantyhose and this solved my problem of crushed curls!

    I’d recommend everyone with curls try the Curl Activating Cream. I have the deep weekly conditioner and daily conditioner as well but my favorite is the cream.

    Happy holidays!

  75. I have locs but my 10 year old has Kinky Curly hair. I would love to try the Shea Butter Deep Conditioning on her hair.

  76. My hair is kinky and I look forward to using the deep conditioning treatment.

  77. NaturalNesha says:

    I have combination hair, the front and crown area are kanky (kinky, lol) while the sides and back are curly. I would love to give the hydrating curl oil a whirl. My hair is healthy, however, I just can’t seem to get that sheen thing going and this oil just may do the trick. :)

  78. Hi. I have wavy to curly hair. I just found out that I am expecting my first child, so I am looking for products that will are natural and good for me and my baby. I am especially looking to try the Shea and Coconut Hydrating Oil. Good work with the blog. Very informative.

  79. Nikita Harris says:

    I have a curly to kinky hair texture. I would love to try the Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment.

  80. I would love to try the curl nurturing system for my two year old, biracial granddaughter. She has the most beautiful head of wavy to curly hair. The issues I am having with her hair is it gets dry and frizzy so easily. Most products I have tried, even the ones for biracial hair, are too heavy for her fine hair. But the products for caucasian hair don’t provide enough moisture! I have spent hundreds of $ on hair care products for her with limited success. Hopefully these products will be the “ones”. Thanks!

  81. My hair is kinky and I look forward to using the deep condition treatment. To soften and condition.

  82. Hi Afrobella,

    I would love to try the Shea and Coconut Hydrating Curl Oil to lock in the much need moisture for my curly to kinky hair. It is tough keeping my hair moisturized and hopefully this product can lock in the moisture and add a little bit of shine as well. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  85. Andrea Jackson says:

    My hair is kinky and I am most interested in the curling cream :)

  86. My hair is afro curly. The strands curl, but the texture is kinky. I have seen these products in Whole Foods. I am interested in the Leave in Conditioner. One of my favorite natural celebs, Hayley Marie Norman, uses it.

  87. Qiana Lawery says:

    Hi Afrobella! Here’s hoping you had a fab Christmas holiday and the New Year kicks off with more great things for you!

    My hair is wavy to curly in the front and curly to kinky in the back…and dry all over, so I’m most looking forward to trying the Hydrating Curl Oil! Maybe that will keep my hair from turning to straw in the winter, lol.

  88. NaturallySusan says:

    My tightly coiled hair is thirsting for the Shea Butter Deep conditioning treatment. I usually wear a super TWA, about 1/4 inch long, but the cold Connecticut winter has persuaded me to let my hair grow to provide my head with some much needed warmth–I hate wearing hats. I’ve been growing it out since October, only slightly snipping it here or there to keep it symmetrical, and it’s about two inches now. Even at this length, I know I need a good conditioner that will allow me to wash, go and stay soft. I am hoping that the shea butter conditioner is it.

  89. Our hair is curly kinky more kinky than curly! We need to try natural hair products instead of products like pantene. we are interested in all to help our hair

It is FAB that she can get it back home in NOLA and I here in the PAC NW, home of Alaffia. What an awesome local company! We would love to try the shampoo or oil or anything they make. We’ll share the loot. I use the body lotion and body wash. My husband uses the bar soap. It is a family affair!

  93. My hair texture is kinky and would love love love to win this contest. I am interested in trying the Shea Butter & Coconut Hydrating Curl Oil. I’m one year into my natural hair journey and have been trying to find products and build season hair regimes that work for my hair.

  94. My hair is pretty much curly to kinky. I’m most interested in trying out the Deep Conditioning Treatment! My thick hurr can always go for that! LOL

  95. Both saturated and trans fats, sodium and magnesium and nearly had heart attacks and
    blood clots. Researchers have also patuatary gland found that the treatment
    is limiting protein intake. The Weight Training Myth You might have noticed,
    there are still plenty of clone iron options on the market that stimulate
    other hormones that trigger additional testosterone production.

    vitamins and minerals. This is because the
    less you weigh the fewer calories it takes to function.
