The United Kingdom haircare market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The haircare market has been affected by the COVID-19 crisis, as there have been widespread retail and salon store closures leading to the weakening sales of various beauty and personal care products in the global market. Since most of the sales for hair care products were from brick-and-mortar locations, the lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic initially dealt a blow to the UK market. Manufacturing halts significantly affected sales as companies were forced to stop their operations due to a lack of inventory. For instance, The Boots UK drugstore chain reported its overall sales fell by two-thirds between March 25 and April 3, 2020, with hair care and beauty product revenues contributing to the decline.

The market is majorly driven by the increased consumer concerns about scalp health, mainly problems related to hair thinning, hair loss, dandruff, and sensitive scalp. Furthermore, the introduction of new hair care products to target specific consumer groups (females suffering from hair loss problems), along with increasing per capita spending of the consumers in the United Kingdom on personal care products is gaining popularity, thereby eventually resulting in the growth of the market. In addition, the growing demand for organic/natural products for personal grooming has also become one of the primary concerns for individuals.

However, factors such as rising awareness regarding the potential side effects of hair care products are restraining market growth. Idealism due to the lockdown people gained more interest in self-care routine , which also drive the market for hair care market.
