The Best Gifts For The Hair Fanatic In Your Life

Gifting to a friend who's a hair-care-extraordinaire kind of person? The first step is to think about their hair care motivation. Hair has always been an opportunity to express yourself, whether to create a signature look like the slick cropped locks Cleopatra is known for or just to convey a certain mood. Sometimes, it's simply about wanting healthy, shiny hair. So when you're buying a gift for your fave hair fanatic, remember to think across all the beauty categories, from self-care refresh moments to long-term hair health — and even glammy Fri-yay out with the girls.

The best gifts for the hair fanatic in your life are easy to find; it's choosing from the plethora of products that can be a time-consuming challenge. So here's a curated collection of hair care products that do everything from ensuring healthy locks to making your hair smell like dewy spring breezes and butterfly kisses. 

Give this gift because no one ever said 'stinky hair, don't care'

One of the mane challenges — other than delightful puns — is keeping locks smelling fresh. According to the hair care experts at prose, hair's protective oils wear off. Hair gets more porous, making it inevitable that odors such as car fumes, smoke, and kitchen aromas get absorbed.

Gemmist's hair freshener leaves hair smelling fresh, which makes for the perfect mid-day spritz after jaywalking through car exhaust on your mandatory latte run. Great for all hair types and celebrated by Popsugar, it's the perfect on-the-go hair gift.

The gift of drama is easy with Overtone's temporary color conditioners

Um, yes. Definitive yes. First, this temporary hair color bundle from Overtone is called Berry Smash. It's named after a cocktail! So, right away, yes. What's more, it takes 15-minutes to use and contains a 100% vegan and cruelty-free formula. The brand also has options for everyone. Its inclusive formulas are great on pin-straight to kinky hair alike. And because Harper Bazaar predicts graphic hair color trends, you better jump on it! Gift across a glorious rainbow of color options, including ginger, purple, teal, and even colorless for a quick pop of shine.

Grab Hidden Bar's curling bar for the perfect in-between washes hair care solution

Chrishell Stause of "Selling Sunset" fame has gorgeous locks, for sure. And, according to People, her stylist uses Hidden Bar's curl bar. Achieving Strause's smooth and shiny twirls with minimal effort is easy and fast. This magic wand heats up in just 60 seconds — perfect for last-minute plans or a quick touch-up. Hair fanatics often skip a day in their hair wash routine. A few "I woke up like this" curls are a fave fix for day-two hair. Put a bow on it, baby. 

The power ponytail is the gift that goes from the gym to the boardroom

With online love from everyone from Seventeen to Cosmopolitan, the clip-in ponytail extenders from Irresistible Me are making waves. It's no news that a power pony is a versatile style that can go straight from the gym to the boardroom. They even offer a choice between wavy and straight. Genuine human hair extensions are easy to customize throughout the year — dye it, curl it, have some fun! With over a dozen color-match options to choose from, this is an easy gift for hair fanatics.

Banish the brass with the toning shampoo every hair-obsessed friend will swoon over

The only place there should be a lot of brass is in a marching band. If you're scrolling through your friend's fierce selfies and notice a bit of brass, you're morally obligated to help. Give your mane maven Chita Beauty's Bye Bye Brass Purple Toning Shampoo. It helps neutralize unwanted yellow-ish tones in natural or highlighted hair as well as gray. Gorgeous hair is a lather away. And guess what? This brand's no animal testing policy is just beautiful!

Velcro hair rollers are super giftable and always a win with hair fanatics

Some big 'ol velcro rollers add oodles of volume to hair. Look for rollers that come with non-creasing clips, though. These Luxy Velcro Hair Rollers are among the best, according to Allure. If you've got a friend who's all about some 90's hair or just wants a little bounce in her crown, snag this 18-piece set. 

Remember, the best gifts for the hair fanatic in your life are also pretty awesome for self-gifting too.
