The Best Hair Products For Your Christmas Shopping List

By Jenna Brooks

Spending the holidays with friends or family but have no idea what to get them this year? Here are some perfect gifts to keep every member of your girl or guy gang looking perfect for this special time of year!

Whether or not you’re going to be having a snowy holiday season, it likely isn’t going to be perfectly sunny, 80-degree beach weather, so your hair will need some hydration if you’re headed out. On the budget-friendlier side of things, also coming in a one-ounce bottle for plane travel, if needed, there’s the L’ange Salt & Sea Texturing Spray. This product can keep your friend or family’s hair hydrated, protecting their ends from being stripped down and split during the harsher weather. They will absolutely fall in love with the Fresh Ocean scent and the beautiful bounce and thickness it brings to their curls. Coming in at only $12, this is the perfect hydrating product for any type of hair and any type of friend or family member you want to find a gift for!


Next on the list is a great bundle deal for your friend with hair on the kinky or more textured side. Perfect to add into their shower routine if they didn’t have a great shampoo and conditioner combo, is the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo comes in at only $22 for both and can easily be ordered and shipped straight from Amazon or found in person at Ulta Beauty. These products keep hair looking healthy, hydrated, and gorgeous, bringing out the full potential of their curls, and, perfect for the holiday season, it has a delicious peppermint and apple cider scent to evoke those warm winter feelings. 

Next we get into the mid-range budget section. We have a great styling crème for stepping out of the house into the cold with your natural hair on display. This styling crème from Pattern Hair Care comes in a fairly large container, holding a total of 15 ounces, and comes in at $25 per tub. It has a fairly sweet scent of floral roses, perfect for your friend or family member who loves lighter, sweeter scent products for any type of hair they can throw at it. The product is designed to be light and keep their hair bouncy, protected, and strong during the unpredictable weather, depending on where you live climate-wise. The product feels and smells pleasant and clean and is sure to be a favorite in your friend’s beauty routine every morning. The crème will last all throughout the day, through both family drama and family fun, and will leave you looking naturally gorgeous for all of those family photos.

Finally, definitely on the higher budget end, and maybe a gift you will want to purchase exclusively for yourself, is a massive holiday bundle from Ulta Beauty. Also, from Pattern Hair Care, this $90 bundle comes with five different products to perfect their shower routine and keep anyone feeling fresh and hydrated throughout the day. It contains a hydrating shampoo and intensive conditioner, with a shower brush for the conditioner to reach all the way to the roots. After your shower, there’s a leave-in conditioner to apply while the hair is still wet, and a spray bottle, to keep anyone’s hair looking healthy all day long. This bundle is definitely more expensive, yet definitely is worth the price, the value for all of these products separately is $100+ and they will last quite a while, so the investment is definitely there!

While friends and family are usually hard to buy for this holiday season, these are gifts that will show you much you care, which will mean the world to them. Whether you’re looking for something more budget-friendly or looking to go over the top, there are so many options to find for any hair type!
