The question of whether wearing caps or hats can lead to hair loss is a common concern that has persisted for generations, predominantly among men but also among women. This enduring myth has been passed down through the years, largely unquestioned. However, it's time to set the record straight: scientific evidence, medical experts, and hair care professionals unanimously agree that wearing a cap does not accelerate or cause hair loss.
What often raises suspicion among cap enthusiasts is the discovery of fallen hairs inside their favorite headgear. While rough handling of caps can pull out hairs, much of the hair found inside a cap has naturally shed. With or without a cap, it's entirely normal for 80-100 hairs to fall from our heads each day. To maintain both personal hygiene and the longevity of your cherished cap, it's essential to inspect it regularly and keep it clean. Over time, a well-worn cap can accumulate hair, sweat, and hair products, potentially impacting hair and scalp health.
Another common mistake is wearing caps too tightly. If your cap is too small and squeezes your scalp, it can impede blood circulation, leading to hair damage and, in extreme cases, traction alopecia—a condition causing temporary hair loss in the affected area. To avoid this, choose a cap that fits your head comfortably without excessive tightness.
At Stiksen, we prioritize quality and the well-being of our customers' hair and scalp. That's why our caps come in various sizes and feature adjustable straps for a customized fit. We recommend regularly adjusting your cap to ensure it isn't too tight, especially after haircuts or changes in your hairstyle. With a well-fitted cap from Stiksen, you can enjoy style without compromising the health of your hair.
