Taking care of the hair, changing the style and even the look are part of the personality of women, and this moves the market for personal care products, which also benefits from the high prices charged by hairdressing salons. Both economy and vanity encourage the purchase of a product in the line, says Cristiane Clausen, executive director of Britânia. “Personal care items are a great investment, they increase the self-esteem of those who purchase them, because in a few minutes and in a quick and practical way, the consumer can style the look the way they want and get the same results from a salon at home. “
