I need a change!
Most sites I scroll have photos of "lifted face" Hollywood types, who we know don't do their own hair, or those under 30.
Hair has gone finer with some gray I blend with foils now, any heavy layering goes flat, spiky won't stay up. I guess I'm heading toward a Helen Mirren.
Looking for over 50 styles with shake-it in place ease.

You might look through this bunch of photos. Sure, you will a lot of famous lifted faces, but there are also pics of many ordinary women, and links to information about these styles.

On the whole, it appears that one has the choice of variations of the Helen Mirren, the Judi Dench, and the Vanessa Redgrave.

Personally, I have the basic Helen Mirren bob, and it serves my fine hair well--looks pretty much the same no matter what the wind or weather.

Just take a look around you and see whose hair you like - among friends etc. That really pans out sometimes with a hairdresser and a style. I just told my hairdresser to "Dench me" but then I had to tell her about Judi Dench?! The woman works too hard. ;)

I always thought that by the time I was this age that I would cut my hair short. But it's still long. I just look better with it this way, and decided I might as well enjoy having long hair while it's still thick and mostly its original color. I can always get a pixie cut if this changes (even though I'm no pixie).

Re-boot this, can't find the Thread on graying now.

Time...the hair of youth (sob!) changes with more graying.
What "Senior" shampoos/conditioners have you changed to?
Need some conditioner for winter static and flyaways, but many make it flat. Do any shampoos only work--moisturizing ones or those with certain chemicals?

It seems most of them are blonde! Is that the new colour for grey??
I would love a Judi Dench haircut, but I have a gnarly exostosis on my forehead. (just like Jean Claude Van Damme.

As regards shampoo/conditioner, I've recently switched to a no shampoo ("no poo") regimen. I "shampoo" with a solution of 1 tbsp baking soda to 1 cup (250ml) water (the mixture should feel slippery) -- massage well into the scalp (if you have long hair, concentrate mostly on the scalp, rather than the ends); rinse well (really well -- and extra special well if you have pierced ears and wear earrings into the shower); condition with a solution of 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar to 1 cup water; rinse well. I towel dry, then apply a small (very small!) amount of my favorite hand cream (organic, with a variety of plant oils) and let dry. No flyaways, the texture of my hair has improved (I have very fine hair) and, more importantly, my scalp is VERY happy. I do this every second or third day, although I'm trying to cut the baking soda solution down to every other shower. Don't get me wrong, I still wash the pertinent bits every day, but overall, my skin is happier and less dry for not showering every day and my scalp, which even now at 47 still tends to be a bit oily, seems more balanced and less prone to breaking out.

I find that, in addition to having better texture, my hair behaves better without stripping away all of the natural oils. I don't use any other styling products -- just relying on a halfway decent haircut (short) which works with my light curl and direction of hair growth. Even after sleeping on my hair, a good fingertip massage of the scalp generally brings it back into a publicly presentable state -- I couldn't do that when I was using expensive shampoo and conditioner!

To ramble a bit more, even, I started down this path about three years ago by simply dropping my shampoo and only using conditioner, then running a smidge of the same conditioner through my hair after towel drying as a leave-in product. That was fine and I would have kept on using it, but the company changed the product and now, even as just a regular conditioner, it makes my scalp flake and break out. So I tried a different, more "natural" brand: same thing, *plus* heavy, greasy hair. Yuck. So after talking to friends and doing some reading online, I decided to take the plunge and go wtih the baking soda/apple cider vinegar. It's been about six weeks and I'm still happy, so I plan to continue. I had one day of itchy flakiness, on the second day, but a good, gentle massage in the shower, followed by conditioning with the cider solution cleared that up.

The only downside I foresee is when traveling. I don't relish carrying baking soda through airport security (plain white powder? Um, yeah). :/
