Hello All,

I have a question about wearing beanies. How old is too old to wear beanies? I am in my 40s.

Thank you for your advice in advance.

It's not your age it's how you wear them.

Never too old! Especially hand knit ones

As long as there's no propellers on top, I think you're good.
2c-3a - med-coarse - normal-high porosity - high density

RO/LI: Aussie Moist, CJ Argan & Olive Oil, Hask Keratin Protein

One of my good friends is an 85 year old ex-nun and has a pink stripe down the middle of her spiked, silver hair. As long as you have a life, enjoy it.

A beanie is just a hat, people of all ages can wear hats.

Well you all know what I'll say to this - you are never too old to wear anything you want to wear.
--I'm located in Western PA.
--I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
--My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
--My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.
--My CG and grey hair progress --
Thank you so much ladies. I just do not want to look like I am trying too hard.

I am thinking that a silk beanie under my motorcycle helmet (although I ride a 49cc scooter in the warm weather) may be just the thing to preserve my waves/curls. I'll be getting one from here in the spring

My grandmother wore beanies at the age of 89!!! I wear them a lot now, since the weather is colder!

We are never too old to wear beanies. Don't over think this age thing. It really is just a number. I wear anything that I want to as long as it doesn't look slutty and that was my same motto when I was in my 20's. Just make sure YOU like the way you look. Haters do exist so there will always be someone to complain but don't worry about them. I love to wear beanies during the winter months, especially on a bad hair day!

Oh gosh..., I just ordered another beanie and I never knew I was doing something daring for my age I think they look better on me than any other style of hat, I get a lot of complements on my beanies too. I am completely fashion ignorant, so when I see something that looks great on me I grab it and wear it Age wise I trust myself not too like anything too crazy

CG since Aug 15, 3A/3B mix, normal/high porosity due to switching to permanent color, but otherwise hair never chemically treated or heat damaged.
Mostly Deva: No Poo, One Condition, Coconut super cream, Arc Angel; argan oil
Occasionally: DC with coconut + honey + condish, ACV rinse
HG so far: hard hat ionic dryer, shower water filter, octopus hair clips - these 3 products made so much difference!
