Rising Popularity of Hair Maintenance Products among Men to Create New Sales Opportunities
Hair care awareness among men is steadily rising around the world. The fashion of keeping long hair and hairstyling and grooming is increasingly being followed by men, especially in urban areas, the hair care market research states. In April 2017, a research study on scalp hair health was published in the International Journal on Trichology, which found that nearly 40% of male students from China and 12.5% male students from India colored their hair. The study shows that men are not just superficially interested in grooming themselves, but they are taking serious efforts to enhance their appearance through coloring, dying, and styling their scalp hair. Most importantly, personal grooming can now claim to be gender-neutral, removing biases surrounding cosmetics.
