Consumers for Brazil’s cosmetics industry are being influenced by increasing trends of utilizing organic products. A growing proclivity towards veganism is being observed, and this largely millennial trend has slowly seeped its way into the cosmetics industry in the form of ‘cruelty-free’ hair products that consist of ingredients that are neither derived directly from animals nor tested on them before initial launch. This has positively impacted the Brazil professional hair care market, This consumer trust in the cosmetics industry has helped the Brazil professional hair care market grow, supplemented by consumers’ growing inclination towards experimentation. For instance, L’Oreal, one of the leading hair care brands in the world has released two products in Brazil called EverStyle and EverCreme, both of which obtained a vegan trademark from the British organization ‘The Vegan Society’ Both products have gained immense popularity especially amongst Brazilian women who predominantly have dark, wavy hair. Similarly, Todecacho is a regional brand that has released a series of vegan hair products specifically for wavy and curly hair. Some of their most popular products, which make use of vegan ingredients locally available in the country, include coconut milk conditioner, apple cider based hair cream, and others. Though hair straightening had become a prevalent phenomenon in Brazil some years back, Brazilian women have now collectively begun embracing their curls: a factor that will affect the range of hair products available in the country. Serums, conditioners, shampoos and other hair products will now be manufactured with the primary objective of maintaining curly and wavy hair. This trend will impact the Brazil professional hair care market profoundly and will be its defining factor in upcoming years. By the end of 2023, the Brazilian professional hair care market is set to earn revenue amounting to $631m and will advance at a rate of 2.3% during the forecast period of 2018-2023.

Acceptance Of Identity Amongst Colored People In Brazil: A Trend Affecting The Hair Care Market

Brazil is a unique country with minorities eventually becoming the majority as documented by recurring census conducted in the country. The 2010 Brazilian census revealed that people of mixed race and black people account for more than half of the country’s population with 50.7%. This officially made African-Brazilians the majority population group in the country, a finding which has significantly impacted hair product trends in the country. The hair of Black women is naturally and predominantly curly, which has inspired growth of some of Brazil’s key salon chains. Though straightening of hair has normally been a westernized trend that professional women had indirectly applied to their lives, colored women are now changing this by associating curly hair as a part of accepting one’s original identity. Beleza Natural, Brazil’s most dominant salon chain with 33 operative salons is founded by a Black woman who has opened the chain with the exclusive idea of making hair products suitable for ‘afro’ hair. They sell products segmented on the basis of different kinds of curls including soft clumps, loose cachos, inner curls, vibrant bunches, and others. Moreover, curly hair requires additional care which has also inspired hair product services in salons. Beleza’s dominant services include providing volume and increasing the definition of curly hair. These characteristics are reflective of the rising acceptance of African-Brazillian identity in Brazil that is majorly impacting the hair care market.
