(Thinkstock) A bad hair day can ruin everything!
Have you ever had a bad hair day so bad that you've been tempted to throw in the towel and crawl back into bed? You're not alone. A recent study commissioned by the hair experts at John Frieda found that nearly 40 percent of women in Canada have "worked from home, stayed home from a party, or worn a hat because of a bad hair day."
Other fun facts from the study:
- Over 60 percent of women said they spend significant time on their hair with 49 percent spending over 30 minutes. When asked what top three events hair matters the most for, 72 percent of women said a wedding, 68 percent said a job interview and 37 percent said a first date.
- Over half of Canadian women (58 percent) color their hair and 16 percent have done so in the past but aren't maintaining it
- Of women who currently colour their hair, 51 percent colour their hair regularly at home
- Almost half of Canadian women (45 percent) reported having straight hair, 39 percent said wavy and 15 percent said curly
- Over one quarter (30 percent) of women with curly hair said the biggest challenge they have with their hair is it gets frizzy
- If women were able to choose their hair type, 30 percent said they would prefer straight hair
- When asked what they think is important to maintaining healthy hair, 85 percent said using good quality hair care products and 62 per cent said using good quality styling and finishing products
- Of women who currently colour their hair or have coloured it in the past, 87 percent said that great hair colour makes them feel more confident and 77 percent said it makes them feel more noticeable. While 78 percent of women who colour their hair reported that doing so at the salon is too expensive, 55 percent said they could not live without hair colour.
