The trend of going to salons for hair care and treatment has reduced due to high proliferation of easy and economic DIY hair packs and relaxants available in the market. Moreover, sales have been declining in traditional hair treatment and styling segment (setting gels, serums and sprays) because of an increased awareness towards the effect of chemicals on the health of hair. A number of DIY hair care recipes involving beneficial hair oils have been doing the rounds in the beauty blogs across the UK and other mature hair care markets. An increased awareness about active ingredients found in the most beneficial of natural ingredients has spurred a quest for picking organic products with high levels of active ingredients which do not damage the hair (using sulfates, SLES, parabens, etc.), and instead, strengthen it over time. Increasing focus on health of hair will drive the sales of utility based 2-in-1 products down.
Menâ€™s hair care has emerged as a high growth sector, as men become increasingly aware and conscious about how they present themselves. The market continues to be driven by incremental innovation in typical product classes like shampoos, relaxants, colourants, etc., while disruptive innovation can only be seen in the newly popular and high growth product segments of ethnic hair care, providing minorities in the UK with hair care custom-made for their needs, thereby filling a space that stood empty for a long time in the history of hair care markets in UK, US, and other mature markets.
Emergence of innovative appliances which involve high ease of usage and care has reduced the sales in salons.
