It’s a Question of How Much | Men’s vs. Women’s Hair Care


Hair Care WhatnotsMen have been puzzled for years as to how much women spend on hair care products. They don’t understand the amount it cost to keep up on the style, keep long hair healthy, and everything else that goes into it. On average, women spend around $700 a year on just their hair. Surprised? Something that isn’t so surprising is that men spend about one third that, or even less, than women do.

To help men understand what women go through, lets pull back the veil for a second. Women do everything they can to keep those pesky grey hairs from peaking through. And blondes do whatever they can to maintain those roots. So hair coloring adds to the price per year a good amount. Then there are all the other products that go with hair. There’s curling irons, straighteners, blow dryers, and more that can range from $20-$300 each. And we can’t forget about how expensive it can be to find the right shampoos (organic, sulfate-free products).

If a woman has beautiful hair, she will regret nothing about the cost. To many people, keeping their hair maintained and looking great is just the same as staying in shape and eating right. In the grand scheme of things, it evens out because hair loss is more common in men than it is in women. So looking good and keeping hair healthy becomes more of a priority to men when they see it leaving.
