I’m lucky enough to have my mother’s hair. It’s strong, slow-growing and mostly neat and tidy (I am going grey as well, but I kind of like it!) but some people are not as lucky as me. I have several friends in their 40’s who are going bald or have already gone bald, but none of them seem to care, they have simply accepted it is going to happen and there is nothing they can do about it. Maybe like these animals they should consider wearing a wig…
