Will Wearing Hats Make Me Bald?
At Hairline Ink, we understand just how many myths are out there regarding hair loss. Especially for men, it can feel as if everything you do will eventually lead to baldness. For example, many people believe that if you habitually wear hats, your hair will fall out more quickly. Rest assured, this is a myth. Wearing hats all of the time can have other effects on your hair, but it won’t cause balding.
Like any other garment, it’s important to keep your hat clean, especially if you wear it all the time. Since hats facilitate a dark, damp, warm environment on top of your head, a dirty hat will expose your scalp to excess bacteria which could cause an infection. Scalp infections can cause a variety of problems with your hair, including hair loss. Additionally, covering your hair all day with a hat can temporarily flatten and diminish the volume of your hair.
What is Causing My Hair Loss?
Whether or not you are predisposed to hair loss is determined by genetic factors, stress, and hormone levels. Male pattern baldness begins occurring as men mature and their production of the hormones testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). These varying hormone levels can cause the follicles in your scalp to diminish in size and grow in shorter cycles. These effects of altered hormone levels, coupled with the fact that the shedding cycle of hair remains unchanged, facilitate conditions that, for many men, lead to hair loss. Though some hair loss can be reversed or mitigated, some is permanent.
