Navigating the holiday gift-giving frenzy can be tricky. Of course, you want everyone on your list to unwrap the perfect gift––but this can be easier said than done. So, what to do after unsuccessfully browsing hundreds of search results for “Christmas gift ideas for best friend”?
We say start with “hair.”
Yes, you read that right. Winter can do a number on everybody’s hair, and most would rather keep their locks healthy through chilly temps, than not. So, if you’re ready to “sleigh” the gift game this season, take a peek at our best hair care gifts.
Why Hair Care Gifts Are Perfect for Christmas
Winter can be harsh on hair. The cold, dry air tends to strip moisture, leading to dry strands and potential breakage. Indoor heating systems can contribute even further to dryness. Knowing this, hair care Christmas gifts can feel especially timely.
Types of Hair Care Gifts
Fortunately for you, there really is no shortage of hair care gifts. They’re as diverse as the hair types and textures they cater to. Here, find a few of our favorites to gift.
A strengthening shampoo is a shower routine’s unsung hero. Look for a sulfate-free one with ingredients that help cleanse without stripping moisture.
Bonding conditioners are your shampoo’s trusted sidekick. Choose one that is repairing, frizz-fighting, and hydrating. Bonus points if it’s color-safe.
Better yet, make it a bundle with a shampoo and conditioner duo. Hair care gifts sets are the best way for your recipient to discover their perfect routine. They’re the gift that keeps on giving.
For added moisture, surprise them with a leave-in conditioner. Not sure of their hair concern? This essential covers them all by hydrating, detangling, fighting frizz, repairing split ends, protecting against heat—all wrapped up in one flexible formula.
Bundle the leave-in with a shampoo and conditioner for a full Wash Day routine. This trio is the ultimate in damage repair.
Especially necessary in colder months, a nourishing hair oil is a win-win gift. It helps fight frizz for up to 72 hours*, adds mirror-like shine, repairs damage, and deeply moisturizes thirsty strands. Thanks to you, they’ll enjoy healthy hair that sways, bounces, and moves naturally.
Seal the deal with a deep hair repair treatment. A hair mask provides intense hydration, deep nourishment, and an increased resistance to hair breakage.
How to Choose the Perfect Gift for Hair-Loving Friends
First, consider their unique hair concerns. What is the hair type and texture? You can most likely tell just by studying a photo of them. Then, do some research about common issues affecting their hair type.
You really can’t go wrong by shopping for the season. Everyone (regardless of hair type) needs extra hydration in the winter. A moisturizing product is a no-fail gift.
Multipurpose products are also universally loved, like a lightweight leave-in conditioner that's also a detangler and heat protectant.
Scope out ingredients so you can make sure you’re giving them an effective, safe product. Look for nourishing ingredients and avoid chemicals like sulfates and parabens.
Like we mentioned, bundles are the perfect Christmas gift for friends and family. Not only do they provide a range of products (usually at a value), but they also tend to come in eye-catching packaging that may not even require wrapping.
You can even go further with eco-friendly packaging and then elevate with thoughtful accessories like a stylish detangling comb or silk pillowcase.
Finally, make it personal by choosing a product in their favorite scent or including a handwritten note.
