Holiday shopping can be a challenge for even the most creative gift-givers, whether you’re shopping for your work wife or your too-cool niece. Plus, gifting calls for new ideas year after year, making it all the more likely to feel like you’ve run out of options. Not only do they have to feel personal (no regifting here!) but they also need to be useful — rather than languish in a corner collecting dust.
That’s where gifts for healthy hair can be particularly helpful. They’re both intensely personal, playing a part in your giftee’s routine and catering to their beauty needs, as well as functional, helping to refresh styles, minimize frizz, and beyond. With that in mind, consider these great gift ideas for every type of recipient, budget, and occasion.
It’s hard to go wrong with a bestseller, even for people who (seemingly) have everything. Because there’s power in numbers — when a product is flying off the shelves, that’s a clue that it’s especially good. Take, for instance, the Perfect hair Day™ Dry Shampoo, which has been a fan-favorite for years; it remains in rotation because people can’t get enough of its hair-refreshing, style-extending power. Newer to the list is Triple Bond Complex; this more recent launch is a weekly, leave-in strengthening treatment that actually leaves hair 8x stronger*, smoother, softer, and more manageable in a single use. Your friend with the standing coloring appointment will thank you. Shop all the Bestsellers here.

The Lp. ambassador, who won a Golden Globe ahead of her role as Emily in the record-breaking Netflix series, prioritizes restoring her hair health between sessions in the styling chair. For that reason, you can find Restore Perfecting Spray on her list; it smooths, strengthens, and protects hair ahead of styling.
