amika’s 2022 holiday gift guide

It’s officially November, which means two things: first, time goes by way too fast; and second, holiday shopping is in full force (for some of us, at least). Buying gifts for loved ones can be overwhelming, especially with seemingly endless options available.  

Luckily, you have us! We’re here to make it simple by sharing our amika-approved holiday gift guide.  

for the one who loves a smooth blowout

This one goes out to the people in your life who love getting a smooth, shiny blowout. The smooth talker value set has everything they need to recreate that look at home. Even more, the entire set is the price of one double agent blow dryer straightening brush, so you’re getting 5 extra products for free (we love a steal!). Keep reading for more details about the set. 

smooth talker double agent straightening blow dry brush set: Can you say that three times fast? This psychedelic set features the double agent straightening blow dry brush, and pairs it with everything you need for a smooth blowout. Wash with the kure bond repair shampoo and conditioner, boost shine with flash instant shine mask, detangle and heat protect with the wizard silicone-dree detangling primer, blow dry with double agent, and keep the style fresh with perk up dry shampoo.  

for the one who doesn’t have a haircare routine

If you have a loved-one in your life who doesn’t have a haircare routine, or doesn’t give their hair much thought, the outta sight value set is the perfect place for them to start!  

outta sight nourishing must-haves set: These outta sight must-haves are easy to use, and great for people just dipping their toe into haircare. Including a normcore signature shampoo, soulfood nourishing mask, and perk up dry shampoo, this set will be sure to give them healthier-looking and feeling hair!  

for the one who hates washing their hair

We’ll be the first to admit it—we often prioritize sleep or social plans over washing our hair. Shampooing can just feel like…a lot. Plus, there are benefits to refraining from cleansing every day. That said, our perk up dry shampoos are the perfect remedy for the busy bees in your life who don’t like washing their hair too often.  

perk up dry shampoo: Infused with nutrient-rich sea buckthorn and natural rice starch, perk up dry shampoo absorbs oil, reduces odor, and restores your hair’s voluminous ‘oomph.’ 

perk up plus extended clean dry shampoo: Infused with gentle AHA mandelic acid, rambutan seed extract, and sustainably sourced arrowroot powder, perk up plus extends time between wash days even further! It helps to keep your scalp healthy and has an invisible finish free of grit.  

for the one who heat styles every day

Friends don’t let friends heat style without using protection! Show them you love them by gifting them one of our heat protectants.  

the wizard detangling primer: The wizard reduces frizz, cuts down on blow-dry time, protects against 450°F heat, and detangles all hair types.   

the wizard silicone-free detangling primer: Just like our original wizard detangling primer, but we swapped the silicones for squalane. If you don’t know which wizard you prefer, read more here!   

Just evenly mist the wizard throughout damp hair before detangling and blow drying, or mist through damp hair then style as usual!  

the shield anti-humidity spray: This spray shields hair from frizz, humidity, and 450°F heat. Spray on damp or dry hair!  

blockade heat defense serum: This glossy, lightweight serum blocks hair from 450°F heat and locks in moisture. Feel free to use on damp or dry hair. 

for your blonde, gray, or silver friends

For anyone in your life who has blonde, gray, or silver hair, we recommend our blonde boogie value set. It tones, targets damage, and reduces breakage!  

blonde boogie bust your brass toning and repair set: Say ‘peace out’ to brassy tones! This groovy giftset includes a bust your brass shampoo, conditioner, and intense repair mask. It’s essential for every step of a blonde, gray, or silver routine.

Don’t forget to give yourself some love and care this holiday season! We encourage self-gifting, so treat yourself by shopping our holiday value sets here.
