New gaskets, new head bolts, change all fluids and most of all, make sure you find the reason it overheated. Head gasket is the result of overheating, not the cause.

Dear Nadeem,

Hi, I am Safdarm indian working in Kuwait (965-55316702). I want to talk to you if you can just miss-call me.
Actually, I also replaced the head gasket due to overheating issues. I want to ask that what fault did you find causing the overheating in your car.
Thanks!

The head should be checked for warp and cracks, do not just replace the gasket only.
