“Ethnic” Hair Care Expected to Become Growth Market

April 1, 2009: 04:05 AM EST
Natural and organic with a focus on maintaining and restoring hair health are the drivers in a burgeoning “ethnic” hair care market in the US, says Veronique Morrison, director of education for Mizani, now owned by L’Oreal. Packaged Facts estimated that ethnic-specific hair care products topped $1.2 billion in 2008, 4.6 percent more than in 2007. “Consumers want visibly shiny viable, healthy looking hair,” says Morrison.The biggest sector in the US is the African-American market, which also uses relaxers, weaves, wigs and extensions. Media focus on new US First Lady Michelle Obama is expected to help keep the spotlight on healthy hair.
