The use of these professional hair care products provides nourishment for the hair and scalp as well as an attractive haircut and appearance. Additionally, both young and old consumers are becoming more and more accustomed to using grooming items including hair straightening and perming products, hair colorants, and styling agents.

Moreover, customers' worries about hair protection, hair fall, hair density, and the quality of hair that needs to be periodically maintained have increased over the past few decades. The need for numerous professional hair care products, including shampoo, hair color, and others, is consequently increased. The market for professional hair care products including hair color, hair wax, hair straighteners, and others is boosted by factors like rising celebrity influence and ongoing self-consciousness over face attractiveness and appearance. Profits in the professional hair care sector are anticipated to rise as youth self-awareness about following fashion trends increases. Additionally, the availability of these professional hair care products through a variety of distribution channels, such as online shops, salons, and others, contributes to the expansion of the professional hair care market.

Due to the competent staff at salons and spas, customers are increasingly favoring professional hair care treatments. Most of the customers are fans of different celebrities, models, and industry leaders. Similarly to this, one of the biggest trends on social media platforms is DIY hairstyles and hair grooming videos. Customers who follow these leaders and celebrities on social media can thus observe how hairdo trends and grooming practices change among the large number of young people using these platforms. Due to changes in their needs for hair styling and grooming, these customers are the primary consumers for the professional hair care market. However, the cross-linking bonds of the hair structure can be modified by customers using professional hair care products, such as strengthening and perming products, which are widely accepted for this purpose. The use of professional hair care products has dramatically expanded as a result of the do-it-yourself (DIY) hair styling trend's popularity among consumers. Additionally, the hair structures of different human races vary, necessitating the use of expert hair care services and products when clients demand particular hairstyles. The majority of professional hair care products are simple to apply and use, and as a result, household use of these products has expanded.

Increased disposable income has significant effects on consumers' lifestyle awareness and purchasing power, which inevitably results in an increase in the use of goods and services. The rate of employment growth drives a quick rise in consumer disposable income.  The professional hair care market is expanding as a result of the economy's improvement and the rise in disposable income. Customers who are fashion- and appearance-conscious and willing to pay more for hair maintenance and style tend to favor professional hair care services. Due to their high costs, professional hair care treatments are regarded as luxury services. Additionally, consumers who care about their scalp health, hair color, and styling select professional hair care products to keep a nice appearance. These goods are superior to alternatives and have high-quality ingredients. People with large amounts of discretionary cash tend to favor professional hair care products because of the high cost of these items.

The mortality pattern in emerging and developed countries has radically changed, which has led to a rise in the number of young and aging people. This has been caused by changes in population composition as well as improvements in public health policies and the medical sector. Additionally, the aging population drives the expansion of the hair care industry because there is a greater need for treatments for issues with grey hair and the scalp.  The majority of women who utilize long hair have a variety of issues, including increased hair loss, split ends, and tangled hair; as a result, the demand for professional hair care services and products among female consumers has greatly increased.

A sizable portion of customers worldwide, according to OMICS, have sensitive scalp syndrome. In this instance, the patient experiences issues with the scalp, including itchiness, dandruff, an oily scalp, and pain in the hair roots. The exposure of the scalp and hair to air pollutants, such as particulate matter, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), nickel, lead, arsenic, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and ammonia, is the cause of sensitive scalp syndrome. Environmental contamination has always mostly been caused by industrialization. Rapid industrialization has accelerated the rate at which dangerous chemical vapors and gases are released directly into the atmosphere, contributing to air pollution. Additionally, growth in the number of automobiles and the dangerous gases they emit, such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide, has worsened air pollution. Air pollution is caused by an excessive amount of dust particles, risky fumes and gases, and other poisonous materials, all of which are bad for people's hair and scalps.

Different scalp issues can be treated with professional hair care services and products because unhygienic environments and direct skin contact with pathogens and dangerous substances are the main causes of these issues.

The growth of the global professional hair care market is significantly driven by fluctuation in hair style trends, rapid increase in disposable income, population growth, and rise in air pollution across the world. Moreover, increase in usage of professional hair care products in developed regions and growth in adoption of organic ingredients are expected to create a lot of opportunities for the hair coloring products, and shampoo manufacturers to create a mass customer base. However, the high cost of such premium and professional products, and involvement of hazardous chemicals to soften hair hamper the growth of the global professional hair care market.
