Yikes! A survey by Tresemme shows that women spend $50,000 (on average) on their hair upkeep in a lifetime. That might seem like a scary figure, but when we did some calculations, our stomachs twisted even tighter because we realized that for some of us Frisky staffers, 50k might be a freakin’ modest sum. Think about it — just a few salon visits a year adds up, as does the stuff you buy for your coif, from shampoo to bobby pins. Even the most low-maintenance ladies among us still shell out cash on a regular basis for a variety of things.
So—rough estimates from you guys? Does 50k seem like a too-high number? Or do you pay for hair maintenance the same way you do for health care? [Stylelist]
