Best Shark Tank Products For Hair Growth
Shark Tank has been home to some of the most wonderful innovations when it comes to hair care products. With the global hair care market estimated to be worth about $87.73 billion dollars in 2018, there is a reason why a good idea in this market segment could easily lead to a multi-million dollar Shark Tank success story. Here are some of the best products related to hair care to appear on Shark Tank.
The Sleep Styler
The Sleep Styler is a hair care product which allows the user to go to bed with wet hair and wake with perfectly styled curls in the morning. Designed by self-taught inventor and entrepreneur Tara Brown, it was Shark Lori Greiner’s investment which helped the Sleep Styler to make $100 million in retail sales in 6 months.
This innovative product is so much more than just hair curlers. Sleep Styler rollers are soft and comfortable, designed for wearing in bed. After an evening shower or bath, towel dry hair and set the Sleet Styler rollers. When you wake, just tidy your perfectly formed curls. Available in a range of sizes depending on the desired curl size, the Sleep Styler won’t damage hair like traditional heat-based hair-styling products. Plus, as the style is set from damp, it will hold longer too.
In 2013, after only 5 months in business, Rachel Bernstein and Melissa Barone pitched Cashmere Hair Clip-in Extensions to the Sharks in the Shark Tank. Although they left the Tank without a deal, the company has risen to the top of the hair extension industry and has become known for providing some of the best quality clip-in hair extensions available.
Cashmere Hair Clip-in Extensions can be styled and clipped into the hair in just matter of a few minutes. Using 100% human hair, this high-quality hair extension lasts up to a year and blends very well with your own hair. The easy “Do-it-yourself, Snap and GO” extensions are undetectable and look like your own hair. Their product range has now grown to offer over 30 shades, including lavenders and pinks, as well as offering different length options and ponytails. With Cashmere Hair Clip-in Extensions, there is a perfect match for every type of hair.
Controlled Chaos anti-frizz and curl taming products, created by curly-haired stylist Alanna York, were presented on the Shark Tank in 2016. York had spent decades refining her hair care formulas to create soft, touchable, frizz-free textured curls. Her curly-haired clientele loved Controlled Chaos, and so did the general public when they saw it on Shark Tank. “I’ve had women cry when they see how well it works for them,” says York.
From its rave reviews, Controlled Chaos seems to work wonders for those with extremely unmanageable curls. The company is also reassuringly eco-conscious. Controlled Chaos products are made with U.S.-sourced organic ingredients and packaged in BPA-free bottles. Plus, one percent of all sales benefit the environment through “1% for the Planet”. They even offer a “Curl Happiness Guarantee”, offering customers their money back if the product doesn’t fully satisfy. If you struggle with unmanageable or frizzy curls, there is nothing to lose in giving Controlled Chaos a try.
CreaProducts brought innovation in home hair cutting to the Shark Tank with the CreaClip. The CreaClip, along with a range of other home beauty products, was presented to the Sharks in 2016 and Lori Greiner snapped up the opportunity to invest $200,000 for 22.5% equity in the company.
The inventor of the CreaClip is Mai Lieu, a professional hairdresser who studied under Toni & Guy, Sebastian and Wella, and Vidal Sassoon, and is the proud recipient of 7 first-place international hairdressing awards. The CreaClip is a gripped hair slide which is placed around the section of hair to be cut. Using the connected spirit level, you can always ensure a straight line. The CreaClip is then tilted to the desired angle to create beautiful bangs or a perfectly trimmed fringe. It is even suitable for cutting or trimming shorter hair. The CreaClip is easy-to-use, small and compact, and incredibly precise.
DrainWig Hair Catcher
Not so much a product designed to care for your hair, DrainWig is a hair related product nonetheless. This nifty little device very simply catches hair in the drain and prevents clogs. Jennifer and Gifford Briggs presented DrainWig to the Sharks in late 2017. Loving the product, Kevin O’Leary, Mark Cuban, and Lori Greiner all fought to make a deal with the pair. After agreeing to a $300,000 investment for 15% of the business from Kevin O’Leary, DrainWig has since made over $14 million in sales.
Its simplicity makes DrainWig so popular. The DrainWig Hair Catcher features a small, star-shaped piece of plastic with a small chain dangling beneath it. When placed into the drain, the chain will catch all hair going down, preventing clogs and the need for using harmful unblocking chemicals. The DrainWig is then disposed of and replaced after a few months. Simple, clever, and it works! Everything that a good Shark Tank product should be.
Laid Brand Rockin’ Multipurpose Hair Oil
Adam Rauch and David Hensley brought Laid Brand to the Shark Tank in 2017, and presented their range of hair products enriched with pheromones. The pheromones in Laid Brand products can help enhance color, in addition to protecting and hydrating hair.
The entrepreneurs failed to land a deal with the Sharks, who were put off by the provocative nature of the name. However, the general public were less concerned about the name, and more interested in how well the product worked. And Laid Brand Rockin’ Multipurpose Hair Oil works. The ingredients chosen in the Laid Brand range all feature health promoting properties. The pheromones not only condition and nourish the hair, they are also designed to give a boost of confidence. These products will leave you and your hair feeling fabulous!
There is unfortunately one hair care area which hasn’t seen many related products coming through the Shark Tank, and that’s hair loss. With hair loss affecting 80% of men at some point in their lives, we thought it important to include a reliable product for combating hair loss on our list. Our research found Folexin.
