There's a reason why the phrase “bad hair day” has become shorthand for a day when nothing seems to go right. Hair reflects how we feel about ourselves and how we want others to see us. DSM's European Hair Study1 found that women often change their hairstyle when facing major life changes. A special event can also be an incentive to overhaul one’s look, as can the realization that the hair is looking tired and listless and needs a revamp.
The DSM study revealed that changing one’s look is generally seen as a positive, yet only a third of the women in the survey regularly mixed their hairstyles while 64% said they wished they were more experimental. So what's holding them back? Change can be daunting and people tend to stick to what they know to hold onto a feeling of control. Conversely, going for a new style is an opportunity to express creativity and mood. It can provide a confidence boost – and with the right support it can be fun.
As manufacturers of hair care ingredients and personal care active ingredients, we are uniquely positioned to take the fear out of experimenting with hair and to empower women to get creative and show the world who they truly are.
Our research found that discovering a new, appealing product often provides the impetus to try something different. New hair needs testers and samples, in particular, appear to offer an inducement and opportunity to experiment.
