Top Hair Trends in 2018
What hair care trends do you see taking off in 2018? Will they mimic skin care trends or evolve into something else? Do you see a continued demand by consumers for organic/natural hair products? And what will be the most popular ingredients for anti-aging scalp care and treatment of hair loss?
While going organic or all natural will still be the direction, I think anti-aging can often be more the focus of the consumers who care more about the look than their internal health. In my community, the majority of the age 50+, although starting to eat healthy and exercise, they can't accept grey hair on their head. Dyeing hair monthly is on their monthly to-do list, even knowing about the toxicity of it. I'll say color and safe ingredients are still the keys in 2018. People who choose grey coverage first may try to offset the harm from dyes by using natural/organic hair care products....at least they may feel better/safer that way.
I do not know the actual hair trends, being a Marine for 40 years basically kills that. I do know that the move will continue to be away from artificial additives, preservatives, dyes etc. that can and do go through the skin and into the body. These are bad for you just like when eaten in foods and can cause inflammation and many other problems. The trend will be to all natural and organic products, just as we are seeing with skin care.
As a Nutritionist, I continually get asked about hair care and hair care products. I agree with Keith Kantor that consumers continue to want products without artificial ingredients or ingredients, preservatives, and chemicals. They do get absorbed through the scalp and can trigger all sorts of health issues through inflammation. As far as hair trends that continue to grow as we move forward to 2018, it continues to embrace individuality when it comes to hair and hair styles - braiding and different hair colors still continue to lead the way.
Agreed. Coconut oil and natural products to enhance hair and scalp quality. Styling and treatment products working with both instant and long term benefits. Growth and volume with a focus on scalp health as well. Braided, dreadlocks, hair as an expression of creativity and personality. Color options both in salon and at home kits. Many companies have online options and home delivery convenience. Embracing variety.
There is a continuous movement on organic and all natural hair care products as people are being more mindful of not only what they put into their body but also what they are using externally. Conditioning and moisturizing products are becoming more popular as well as steam treatments. A lot of exfolients and oils are becoming popular such as coconut oils and jojoba oils.
Due to easy accessibility of internet, current days customers become very smart and intelligent. Plethora of open information making them cosmetics expert in one day. They look into the ingredients from benefits perspectives. Current consumers also looking for functional efficacy of the products than the emotive. Pharma-based products might get advantage over the cosmetics products. Therefore, time has came for making product claims carefully. As far as the current trends is concern, the term "Botanical" is picking up the market very rapidly. There are many ingredients pulled from the skin care regime and put into hair care products for claiming the benefits proven in skin care regime.
Daily diet in take plays very important role to the health one's hair health and this can not be taken lightly. Nutritional deficiency may impact both hair structure and hair growth. Effects on hair growth include acute telogen effluvium (TE), a well-known effect of sudden weight loss or decreased protein intake, as well as the diffuse alopecia seen in niacin deficiency. Patients with hair loss often inquire whether nutritional supplements can help restore hair growth or prevent further hair loss. Keeping all these, many patients seeking treatment for hair loss ask about dietary recommendation. In the current market there are multiple food supplements are available that are addressing different cosmetics needs.
