Hair Statistics For 2021
Throughout the year HairBrushy collects interesting data about hair. These studies and data collections are based on real people and real data from this site. Sometimes we come up with some interesting hair facts. So interesting we like to share them. 2021 was a great year to collect data about how people damaged their hair and when hair static conditions happen the most. The data presented below was collected during 2021 from January through December.
How Was Your Hair Damaged?
When asked “how was your hair damaged,” the overwhelming majority of respondents said it was due to color treatments. Just the color process alone caused harm to 34 percent of the hair population. This proportion rises to 51.4 percent when paired with heat generated by hair styling techniques. When chemical treatments are included, the total number climbs. A total of 54.3 percent of the hair was damaged as a result of chemical treatments and heat exposure.
When Does Static Happen The Most?
When asked “when does static happen the most” the overwhelming majority of respondents said during Winter. A small number of respondents said Fall. So as you can see there is a trend. As the weather gets colder static conditions are on the rise. This is most likely due to being indoors and hair being subjected to heated dry air. Surprisingly static conditions do not go away completely in the Summer. This is most likely due to air conditioning drying indoor air.
Hairbrushes have different classifications. Hairbrushes also have special purposes and features, making certain ones better for creating specific hairstyles. Knowing your hair type is beneficial in choosing a hairbrush. Depending on your hair type, the effects of brushing will be different. For example, curly hair, when brushed, will typically expand while straight hair will look smoother. A boar bristle hairbrush will excel at personal hygiene and adding shine, while a paddle brush will be the best choice for taming frizzy hair conditions and brushing through a lot of hair fast. Hairbrushes can be classified by the following characteristics, shape, bristle density, bristle firmness and purpose. Continue reading to find out more about hairbrushes.
