Unexpected Physical Changes That Occur as You Age
Younger people love to play with their hair. They style it differently, grow it as beards, and even color it. They use it as a beauty accessory and have fun doing so.
However, hair isn’t quite so much fun to deal with when you start aging because hair starts to do its own thing.
Sometimes, it shows up in the strangest and most embarrassing places!
Women start to develop whiskers and a heavier growth of hair on their faces. Men’s ears sometimes fill with hair, and their eyebrows become thick and bushy.
While most people have hair that turns partially or totally gray, just about everybody notices that its consistency changes.
For some, it thins. Others find themselves losing it altogether. Many have to tolerate a brittleness that did not exist in their younger years, which makes it difficult to properly style.
This is why you see so many women “perming” their hair or wearing it quite short and why you see men trying to hide their bald spots by trying to comb whatever hair they have left over the thin areas. Some women go partially or completely bald as well.
These issues are not fun to deal with because they make people look older and constantly remind them that they are aging.
I once went to an afternoon concert that was attended by older people. I sat in the back row which was higher than the rows in front of it. When the theater filled up, and everybody was seated, it donned on me that what I was looking at what appeared to be rows of cotton balls!
