Whether you’re shopping for your sister, mom or coworker, gifting something that will really wow is a challenge.

So, if you’re in the market for the ultimate gift for your curly-haired loved one, we’re happy to report that you needn’t stress. We’ve curated a thorough list of everything the curly girl on your list wants. Here, ten items to add to cart ASAP so you can win at holiday shopping.

1. A Killer Curl Shampoo

Since shampoo is essentially the foundation of any good hair care routine, she should be using best of the best, like HASK Curl Care Moisturizing Shampoo. Made with a curl-activating complex, this shampoo is the key to frizz-less, defined curls. Not only is it free of silicones, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten and more, but it’s also vegan and cruelty-free. And since it’s made with coconut oil, argan oil and vitamin E, it smells amazing and leaves her hair looking moisturized. What more could a curly girl ask for?

2. A Diffuser That Gets The Job Done

When it comes to drying curly hair, a diffuser really amps up the volume. And while a standard blow dryer is fine, using a diffuser attachment can take curls from limp and frizzy to bouncy and full. With nearly 11,000 reviews on Amazon, this Revlon 1875W Volume Booster Hair Dryer has an overall 4.5 out of 5 rating and is specifically designed to smooth and define natural curls and waves.

3. A Sleep Turban Fit For A Queen

If you’re looking for something a bit more luxe, this Grace Eleyae All Silk Turban is definitely the way to go. It’s incredibly chic, and can be worn to bed (to protect hair and prevent frizziness) or out and about as a statement accessory. It’s 100 percent double-lined silk and will make her mornings that much easier since byt combating dreaded bedhead. (And can you really put a price on a better start to her day? We think not.)

4. The Ultimate Curl Conditioner

When it comes to conditioner, curly girls need something rich and packed with moisturizing ingredients like coconut oil, vitamin E and argan oil. Luckily, this HASK Curl Care Detangling Conditioner has it all. As the name suggests, the HASK Curl Care Detangling Conditioner makes getting tangles out easy and damage-free. Not only will it breathe life into her curls, it’ll help keep them defined and bouncy all day long.

5. A Hard-working Detangling Brush

The other key to tangle-free hair? Ladies with curls definitely need a wet brush to work through knots without pulling or ripping-out hair. That’s why we love the Tangle Teezer Ultimate Detangler and its specially crafted bristles that reduce hair breakage. It can be used in conjunction with conditioner in the shower or after on wet hair.

6. A Microfiber Towel For Frizz-free Hair

Moisturizing shampoos and smoothing conditioners won’t do much unless curls are dried with the TLC they deserve. That means no harsh rubbing with rough cotton towels. Curls need gentle materials, like microfiber, to thrive. A towel like the Devatowel is ideal when trying to reduce frizz and protect the shape and vibrancy of her precious curls.

7. A Curl Cream That Won’t Quit

When humidity or poor weather strikes, curly girls need a powerful curl cream to keep their locks looking polished. The HASK Curl Care Defining Cream traps in moisture for long-lasting shine and frizz protection. Plus, it keeps curls from falling, no matter the curl pattern. It’s also lightweight and humidity-proof so tresses won’t look weighed down or greasy. It’s basically the icing on the cake.

8. A Wide Tooth Comb For Added Definition

While a detangling brush is a necessity for wet curly hair, a wide-tooth comb is essential for creating definition, volume and curl separation when hair is dry. The Pattern Wide Tooth Comb does all that and more. Suitable for dry or wet hair, it minimizes hair breakage and maximizes curls.

9. A Silk Pillowcase For Sweet Dreams & Even Sweater Tresses

Silk pillowcases don’t just make for a chic bedroom or a fine-line-free face, they’re also incredible when it comes to keeping curls smooth. Unlike cotton pillowcases, a silk pillowcase like this Slip one can make bedhead a thing of the past.

10. And Finally, A Chic Sprunchie To Hold It All Together

Not all ponytail holders are created equal. For ladies with curls, rubber bands just won’t do. Something thick that won’t tug at hair but has enough hold to make sure updo’s stay put is just the thing—and an ultra-luxe stocking stuffer, might we add. The Invisibobble Slim Sprunchie combines the utility of a scrunchie and the function of a coil hair ring for ponytail perfection. Plus it looks cute as a bracelet, too.
