Beleza Natural is one of the biggest hair care players in the Brazil market, serving over 100,000 customers every month, something company executives believe has lent itself an expertise in kinky or curly hair and creating a ‘think tank’ focused on curly hair.
The result is the creation of the bn. BIO Collection, a customizable hair care and hair styling line dedicated to caring for naturally curly hair, with a focus on optimizing the hair health.
Five-step customizable process
What’s different about this line is that it takes a holistic approach to hair care by incorporating a five-step process that also targets hair health from the inside out.
The comprehensive new hair care line is being launched throughout the Americas, including the US market, and has been designed to also incorporate nutritional expertise to bring consumers stronger and healthier hair that also fits in with the lifestyle.
To that end, the Beleza Natural development team worked with the Think with Google team to narrow down what consumers are looking for in both their hair care and lifestyle needs.
Brazilian women already customize hair care
What was interesting is that the research found that 44% of Brazilian women are already customizing their hair care products with natural ingredients to make them more effective.
According to the Beleza Natural development team, the research it conducted with Think with Google confirmed that textured hair customers are actively looking for products that include natural element to give their hair regimes greater efficacy, resulting in greater hair control.
The result is the development of a line that gives customers greater freedom of choice to decide what goes into their hair by picking from a range of products incorporating a five-step process that incorporates high quality natural ingredients.
The range is also cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and has a gentle cleansing action that means hair will not dry out.
