When it comes to hair care, Millennials have distinct product, style and shopping preferences, according to the 2017 Cloud 10 Millennial Hair Care Report.
The survey polled 1000 women, ages 18 to 35, from across the country at all income levels. It was commissioned by Cloud 10 Hair Care, a pioneer in customized hair care. The survey revealed:
- 59 percent of women polled wish they had someone else’s hair, or are only happy with their hair sometimes.
- 77 percent prefer shampoos and conditioners customized for their particular hair care needs.
- Only 15 percent of Millennials choose to wash their hair daily. Most prefer to wash it 2-3 times per week.
- An overwhelming 88 percent say scent plays a factor in purchasing shampoos and conditioners. In that group, about half say it’s “very important.”
- 22 percent of Millennials say they would never use a shampoo or conditioner that contains sulfates or parabens, while 34 percent have no idea what they are.
- Stronger hair topped Millennials’ hair care goals. Reducing dryness and taming frizz followed in importance.
- Millennials shop everywhere for hair care formulas, with nearly a quarter shopping online.
- Bad hair day? 30 percent opted for a bun!
