We all know someone who has amazing hair. They’re the person we go out with, and every time, their hair seems to make a statement, attract attention and even express their personal vibe. And let’s be honest— they deserve all that positive attention. They take care of their hair to maintain its pride and joy factor. This holiday season, we’ve put together a list of the best gift ideas for all of your hair-honoring loved ones.
Best Hair Gifts
What should you give someone who is obsessed with their tresses? The best hair gifts will reflect the person’s lifestyle, priorities and individual nature. Because hair isn’t just hair. It’s an extension of the self and all the expressive details we want to show off to the world. Here are some promising ideas that’ll be sure to spark your shopping inspiration.
Best Gifts for Natural Hair
The all-natural friend likely styles their hair in all its “as I am” glory. Natural hair wearers want to keep things simple and avoid forcing themselves into shapes that don’t quite fit.
Hands down, the best gift for these natural folk would be a silk pillowcase. Because first: who doesn’t want to sleep like royalty? And second: a silky smooth pillow helps keep hair moisture in, tangles at bay and natural texture just as it should be.
TIY Pro Hair Ties
Hair ties can be a constant issue for people trying to love their real hair. Elastics break, scrunchies don’t fit right and too many brands pull at hair. The soft and customizable TIY hair ties work for any hair thickness, allowing natural strands to breathe while still optimizing hold.
Crave Naturals Detangling Brush
The biggest buzzkill for natural hair: knots and tangles. Nobody’s got time for that anymore. Gift your friend or family member the relief of easy detangling with this adult- and kid-friendly detangling brush.
Best Gifts for Curly Hair
Curly girls (and guys and grandmas and anyone else with curls) basically schedule their lives around their hair. Unless you have curls yourself, you simply won’t know. Trust us. Here are a few must-haves to get your coily, wavy or anywhere-in-between loved one.
The secret to good curls is treating them well. The not-so-secret enemy to good curls is FRIZZ. Help your curly friend out by giving them a microfiber towel to use straight out of the shower.
Wide-Tooth Detangler Comb
Curly-haired people can’t whip out any old hairbrush and call it a day. They need specific tools to promote lasting, healthy curls. A good-quality wide-tooth comb is a necessity, and to be honest, they’re easy to go through.
Best Men’s Hair Product Gift Sets
Let’s not forget the men who need hair gifts. To make it straight and to the point: buy him a gift set.
