Does Wearing a Hat Cause Hair Loss?

Does Wearing a Hat Cause Hair Loss?

When you're a hat wearer who has just noticed that your hairline is receding or that your hair feels thinner, it's perfectly natural to find yourself wondering if your hat led to the hair loss. At this time, there's no evidence to indicate a link between wearing hats and hair loss. While there's no known direct connection between hair loss and hat wearing, your hat can cause some issues that directly impacts the overall health of your scalp, including:

  • Poor air circulation
  • Pores clogged from sweat and dirt
  • Damaged hair follicles

What Causes Hair Loss

The average person loses between 50 and 100 strands of hair every single day. If you wear a hat nearly all day long, it often looks like you've lost more because the fallen strands are matted on the inside of your hat. If you routinely notice more than 100 strands of hair caught in your hat or tangled in your comb it's time to talk to New Image Hair Clinic about why your losing your hair and the most suitable hair loss solution.

Reasons for this hair loss could include:

  • Genetics
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • An infection
  • Nutritional problems
  • A direct side effect of a medication you're taking
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Stress

Losing your hair has a direct impact on your overall happiness and sense of well-being, which is why it's so important to learn both the cause of the hair loss as well as hair loss solutions.

Men, Hats, and Hair Loss

Compared to women, men not only wear hats with greater regularity but are also more prone to hair loss than women, so it makes sense that they're more concerned about the connection between hair loss and hat wearing. In order to prevent some of the hair and scalp health issues connected to wearing a hat, men should:

  • Make sure the hat fits properly
  • Routinely clean their hat
  • Set aside periods of time when they don't wear a hat
  • Select a hat that is designed to promote air flow

If you've noticed that your hair is thinning more rapidly than you're comfortable with, you should know that hair loss doesn't necessarily have to be in your future. There are some options available to you.

The first step in reversing your hair loss is determining the reason it's happening. That's where we come into the picture. Once you schedule a free hair loss consultation, we'll determine why you're experiencing hair loss, and find the best hair loss solution that work specifically for you.
