You can tell when your hair has been left unattended.
When you notice your hair is standing up in the shower, at home or on the way to work, it’s probably time to go to your salon.
The Canadian Hair Care Association says about 5.6 per cent of Canadian women and 3.8 per cent a man have a habit of staying at home to care for their hair.
And if you’re one of those women, you’re probably not alone.
I do not want to leave my hair unattatched.
– Sarah McLeod, 27, from St. John’s, N.L.A.
Sources CBC News article “It can be pretty frustrating because you don’t know how long it’s going to take to get the job done,” said Sarah McLean, 27.
“If it takes 10 minutes, you can’t do it in the morning.”
McLean said she often sees her hair left in the salon for days, even weeks, before she’s able to get her hair in order.
“I have a lot of issues with the salon not being able to do the job,” she said.
McLeod said she recently had to do a lot more than just get her haircut done.
She had to get a wig made.
“[I] got a wig that I had to buy and it’s a lot longer than I had hoped,” she recalled.
A new study shows that the number of women who leave their hair unattached has doubled in the past decade.
For example, in 2006, there were only about 2,000 people who had left their hair alone in their own home.
Today, there are more than 40,000.
