Aging and Hair Loss

I went to visit my mom the other day for the first time in a few weeks. She had just gotten out of the shower, so her hair wasn’t done up as it usually is. I was kind of shocked to see how thin it is on top. She has a very noticeable line down the center of her scalp where the hair isn’t growing in anymore. It looks like a doubly wide center part, if that helps you picture it better.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised because she is 63 years old, but still. I know my mom takes great pride in her appearance, so I want to look at hair loss products for her. Then again, she might get offended or embarrassed if I bring the subject up, so maybe I should just step back and mind my own business.

Aging sucks.
