ALL NATURAL: Holiday Hair Accessories for Thick Curly Hair
Credit: Courtesy

Having thick curly hair is truly nothing but a blessing. However, when most hair accessories were made with fine strands in mind, it can be quite a pain to try to find clips that don't automatically pop out as soon as you snap them in, or headbands that don't get lost in your hair.

Trust me, I know firsthand.

So because I've already been through the struggle, I knew I had to put a little something together for my girls with thick manes right before the holidays. Now, we can all be as extra as we want to be before entering our holiday Zoom parties with the video on.

All of my favorite accessories for thick curly hair, ahead.
