National Hair Day

National Hair Day is a day of awareness for those who want to have chic, healthy hair. It was founded by the hair products company Holiday NuMe and is observed on October 1st each year. The main goal of this day is to help people learn how to properly care for their hair, try out new cosmetic products, and learn modern methods of dealing with hair problems.


Throughout history, women have come up with various methods to strengthen their hair. For example, the famous Cleopatra used to wash her hair with donkey milk, and clay was widely used, diluted in warm water and applied along the length of the hair. In India, coconut milk and sage decoctions were also used for hair care.

National Hair Day was founded by NuMe, a hair products company.
