Health and wellness are also now playing a huge part in consumers lives that are craving looking and feeling their best. They have now made hair care part of their self-care routine, and this has resulted in a move away from basic shampoo and conditioner regimes to focus more on wellbeing and taking a moment to relax. These routines are not just about cleansing, but also consider the importance of hair and scalp hydration when looking to keep hair in good condition.
Consumers have also started to embrace their natural hair textures, specifically for curly, textured hair, empowered by inclusive cultural movements and a desire to express their true self. There is also space for fun and experimentation, as consumers look for solutions that allow them to change up their styles with freedom, with effective products that deliver the results they desire.
