Historically, hats were associated with a gentleman’s fashion, but today it seems like fewer men wear hats. It is unclear why men are losing interest in the accessory, but in the majority of cases, it seems to be because many people think that wearing bucket hat can alter their hair in ways that they wouldn’t like.
Certain people believe wearing hats pulls out their hair, while others dislike having hat hair after removing a hat. Many men today often associate their appearance with how good their hair looks, which explains why they don’t want to wear anything that could damage their hair, but what if they didn’t have any reason to avoid hats?
Solving the “Problems”
One of the biggest problems people face when they wear hats is hair falling out, but what if that was just a myth? Many scientists have recently suggested that wearing hats often has nothing to do with going bald, but may simply reflect genetics at work, or it could be a result of aging. You should be careful when wearing your hat, as there are some ways to wear it that can harm thinned hair. When wearing your hat, you should not wear it too tightly, as this can cut off circulation to your hair follicles. In addition, you shouldn’t wear hats that pull your hair tightly, such as very tight beanies or swimmer’s caps that cause your hair to fall out if worn too often. Similarly, if your hats are dirty and you keep wearing them, you could get a scalp infection and hair loss could result. The good news is that if you wear clean hats in your size, you have nothing to worry about.
I now turn to the subject of hat hair. A hat is one of the most annoying things to wear, but remove it and your hair will be flat, frizzy, and ugly. It is not easy to avoid this problem, but there are a few things one can try to resolve it. First of all, hat hair is usually caused by wearing tight hats, so make sure the hat you wear fits you correctly.
Secondly, before wearing your hat makes sure your hair is completely dry, not even damp. Otherwise, your hair will dry out and take the shape of the hat, which probably isn’t what you want. Moreover, spray a volumizing product on your hair before wearing your hat to give your hair long-lasting shape. Additionally, you can try applying leave-in conditioner, which also helps prevent getting hat hair. It is recommended to spray a bit of healthy hairspray (natural oil based hair spray) on your hair every now and then to prevent static build-up and frizz.
There are a few things you can do if you have hat hair, but you’re not at home or you have limited time and you want to fix it. When your hair gets in this condition, you should not comb it, even though it may seem logical. Rather, run your hands through it and brush the hair. Take a towel and soak it in very hot water, if you’d like to go one step further.
After that, rinse it well and wrap it around your head. Towel steam should help you restore your hair to its original form, much like a clothes steamer steams out wrinkles on your clothes. If none of these methods work for you and you still want to restore your hair, wash your hair as you normally would in the sink.
Having a problem is nothing to worry about!
Even though you can’t always avoid accidentally pulling out a few hairs when wearing hats or getting hat hair every now and then, that shouldn’t prevent you from completely forgetting about hats. Interestingly enough, some men who are losing hair or have already gone bald actually prefer to wear hats. They admire how they look and feel on them, not to mention the many controversial debates about whether the natural oil produced by the scalp does anything to protect the hair.
No matter how much hair you have or how much it means to you, remember that hats aren’t as bad as you might think. They can also improve your overall appearance as long as they are kept in good condition. Just follow our suggestions and you should be fine. Do you like and care about this article? Please share!
