Description

The haircare market has seen little change between 2006 and 2011, with sales of $6.5 billion in 2011 just $10 million more than in 2006. Fluctuations in the interceding years have been by and large a product of the faltering economy, with increases in 2009 a result of consumers tired of constantly scrimping and saving every penny. Subsequent decreases in haircare sales were a product of those same consumers realizing the extent to which the economic slowdown would continue.
