The hair care aisle is being primed for a slew of new items, hitting mass stores in the first half of next year. The estimated $5 billion category, which is holding its own despite the economy, with flat sales in the styling segment and a 1 percent increase in shampoo and conditioner sales, is set to receive products that target everything from layers to waves to consumers seeking fuller hair. Some highlights include a sulfate-free range from L’Oréal Paris, one that might help the brand get a foothold on the category, as well as an entire line that addresses layers, complete with a snappy tag line that might inspire women holding onto their purse strings to try something new.


TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Collection

Defining characteristics:
A range of prep, styling and finishing products created for women seeking voluminous styles.
