What new hair products are coming on the market this year? Are there any big changes or new products that you just can’t live without?
There are many trends that are coming up, not just new hair products but trends as well. As I’m sure you’ve seen over the past several years one very prominent trend is that balding men, and even those that aren’t balding, are shaving their heads.
Today, for many men, bald is beautiful. This one trend has really taken the pressure off a lot of guys. You can’t do much (well, you can’t really do anything) about your genetics so if you are predisposed to losing your hair, you are probably ecstatic about this particular trend.
Another trend that seems to be growing in popularity is hair color. I know, you’re probably saying to yourself that hair coloring has been around for a long time. Even the “unnatural” colors have been very popular for a long time.
What is a little new though is the age of the women who are adding the more “funky” colors to their hair.
It’s not uncommon to see a younger person, man or woman, to have some sort of hair color other than blonde, brunette and redhead.
Today, we see older women going with the blues and purples and greens too. I personally know two women who have added an unusual color to their hair. These are middle age, suburban housewives who have chosen to add some color to their hair.
One has added blue and green and the other has added green. It’s different, that’s for sure, but it is fun and both of them really enjoy the way it looks.
It’s kind of nice that even an older woman can still explore and experiment with her look. Today we are far less restricted by overly rigid societal pressure… and I think that is good.
Another very important change in hair care is that more and more products are touting all natural in their hair care products.
Today, we are more concerned with what we put on our hair because we realize that it can still end up in our bodies. The pressure to clean up and focus more on only all natural products when creating a new hair care product is becoming the norm rather than the exception.
Years ago, most top brands got a lot of flack for testing their new products on animals. It has become the norm to not test on animals which is a great move forward but today that is not enough.
Today, the top brands have to also offer all natural versions of their products, or at the minimum, less potentially toxic ingredients in their products.
