Hair is one's crowning glory, and it surprisingly gives clues about one's health, habits, lifestyle, mood, and even culture. Today's hair trends favour the natural look, which means working with rather than against the hair texture, density, and colour. Working with various types of hair to match the wearer's desire has never been easier. The most recent hair care tools are simple to use, portable, and can help you achieve your desired hairstyle in a matter of minutes. In addition, the availability of both high-end and low-cost hair accessories has increased the popularity of these devices.
Hair care accessory innovations necessitate the use of advanced materials such as thermoplastic elastomers, allowing manufacturers to develop premium products that meet the needs of discerning consumers and help them avoid bad hair days.
Thermoplastic elastomers or TPEs can provide aesthetic, functional, and design element in hair care accessories such as anti-frizz combs, straightener and curler devices, hair dryers, shampoo brushes, hair extension pliers, and more.
KRAIBURG TPE, a global TPE manufacturer of a diverse range of thermoplastic elastomer products and custom solutions for a variety of industries, provides high-quality and custom-engineered compounds with mechanical and physical properties suitable for hair care accessories and other consumer and industrial applications.
