New Market Study, Hair Care in Colombia, Has Been Published

hair cae researchHair care products which aim to protect, nourish and reduce hair damage inflicted by perms, colourants and environmental conditions made significant progress in 2013 and are now expanding to a broader concept, hair anti-agers. 

Pantene Age-Defy and Dove Hair Tips Restructuring Treatment are some examples of the advances in this trend. Hair care professionals (stylists) are greatly involved in this diffusion process.

Brands, such as L’Oreal, are actively seeking salons as a showcase of their products and training stylists to actively recommend products. L’Oreal has products for retailing and for the institutional channel enabling consumers to easily purchase products at salons (representing a business opportunity for hair care professionals) and also a look for similar products at retailers.

Competitive Landscape:

Unilever with the addition of its Sedal, Clear and Dove Hair brands is the leading company in hair care. The company has remained active in new product development for its brands and Sedal, which is the more affordable option, launched new products in 2013, such as Clima Resist, which launched in 2011.

This claims to protect hair from climate and external aggressions. Sedal has also made inroads in the natural trend with Sedal Naturals “Hidratacion Sedosa” and “Revitalizacion y Fuerza”, which are endorsed by Hernan Zajar, a famous Colombian designer who assures the importance of naturalness both in personal care and fashion design. The products are targeted at increasing awareness of the importance of hair health in personal appearance. Sedal’s promotion is working to combine hair health, fashion and general wellbeing to project an overall good personal image.

Industry Prospects:

Hair care is likely to continue heading toward the development of more pre- and post-bath solutions. Some years ago, bath targeted products (shampoos and conditioners) and to a lesser extent, styling agents comprised most of the offer in Colombia.

Attempts were made to combine shampoos with conditioners in the same product, a move that worked better in baby and child-specific products for convenience reasons, but which is mainly split for adults.

It is in fact the specialisation trend that is boosting hair care and driving the development of a wider range of solutions and products. The cleaning and conditioning benefits of hair care products will remain the more important functions, while those basic needs will continue evolving over the forecast period.

The category is ready to embrace more sophisticated pre- and post-bath solutions, such as anti-agers, specific hair care products for coloured hair, and hair loss solutions embedded in beauty and personal care products (coming from the consumer health industry).
