These products are designed to provide nourishment and prevent hair damage; these are mainly comprised of shampoos, conditioners, grooming products, etc. The products have gained prominent deliberations across the globe due to increasing issues of hair related problems. As these problems are enhancing at a greater rate, use of hair care cosmetics should be regulated in order to make them safe and effective to the consumer. However, manufacturers across the globe are conducting safety analysis to ensure the safety, non- irritating potential of these products and that the product should not cause any allergic reaction.
