Do you still take the time to care for your hair? Or does it feel like a lost cause? 5

We recently raised the subject of hair styling with the Starts at 60 community. The responses could not have been more varied.

Today we’d like to ask our readers:
Does it still feel worthwhile to spend time on your hair?

Is it a daily ritual, or an afterthought? Does a trip to the hairdresser feel like an indulgence, or an obligation?

Do obstacles like hair loss take away the joy of styling your hair?

For some, it’s all about practicality: a monthly haircut, a wash twice a week, and little more worry than that. For others, it was still a point of pride: a chance to continually define and reinvent your own identity.

Only one thing is abundantly clear: hair does not get any easier to maintain with age. For all too many in our community, thinning hair and hair loss are an unfortunate reality.

In men, hair loss can lead to baldness. In women, the effect is a more subtle and gradual effect resulting in thin, sparse hair. (For more information, please see our recent guide: Why is my hair thinning?)

While this is natural, it is not necessarily inevitable. In fact, for many, it can even be reversible.

  1. I care for my hair every day I style it with hot rollers. It is a must. I go to hair dressers once a month for hair cut & a bit of pampering. I do not go out unless my hair is tidy as I call it.

    • I style my hair – hair cut about very 6 weeks – colour my own hair – just changed my hair style !!! and I get a good comment nearly every day – stoked !!!

    • I’m with you Kathy. Drives my husband mad that I won’t leave the house, even to pop to the local shops, without getting my hair just right and with at least some makeup. See too many friends just saying “she’ll be right”

  2. I would be lucky to spent more than 10 min every couple of days on my hair. I comb it after I wash it and that is all the attention it gets from me. When it is so long it annoys me I go for a hair cut, that’s about every 10 to 12 weeks.

  3. I love my visits to the hairdresser- not only does she do a great job on my hair and make me feel good about myself but it has become a social event as well!!!
