Do You Dry Shampoo?
Dry Shampoos continue to crash the daily shampoo-and-repeat party. According to Mintel, regular shampoo usage has seen a slight decline, as 85% (2016) of those polled indicated they wash their hair less, compared to 89% just a year earlier (2015). In addition to just washing their hair less frequently, consumers are purchasing more dry shampoos as indicated, with usage increasing by 4% in 2016(2). However, it hasn’t always been positive for dry shampoos. Their slow rise to fame is attributed to an adjustment in their marketing message. In 2006, dry shampoos focused on ease of use and UV protection. Now they are positioned as time savers and tout free-from claims.
Don’t expect this rise to fame to slow down anytime soon. As the world continues to deal with water scarcity, dry shampoos address this global concern.
Also, dry shampoos are perfectly positioned to go after the growing ethnic hair care market.
