If you have natural hair, you understand the winter struggles. Most of us don’t get to take advantage of warm wool hats because they’re not good for our hair — not to mention, they’ll result in a frizzy mess. These silk-lined beanies by Kink & Coil give us the protection of a silk bonnet, and the warmth, coziness, and style of winter beanies!
Perfect for game nights: Lyrically Correct ($25)

Card games like this have made a huge splash over the last few years, and for good reason — they’re a ton of fun, especially in a group. Lyrically Correct is owned by two black couples: Dee and Tiffany, and Julez and Nikki. The game tests your knowledge of r&b and hip hop hits from the 1990s and 2000s, so choose your teammates wisely!
