Report Description


The hair colourants category has fluctuated in value in recent years as temporary colour products, which are typically priced lower than permanent products, continue to boom in popularity. Consumers are also showing a more relaxed approach to colouring, with colourant users extending the longevity of their colour as well as only targeting specific areas of their hair, such as the roots or areas of grey. With consumer attitudes showing an acceptability of some grey hair, there may be NPD opportunities in shade formulations for different levels of colour coverage to encourage users back into the permanent sector.
