Can Wearing a Hat Cause Your Hair Loss

When you first notice your hair getting thinner, you may ask yourself “what did I do wrong to cause my hair to fall out?” There are many causes for hair loss and one that has been thought to contribute to the problem is wearing hats. Is this true? Read on…

Hair loss may start with just a few hairs falling out or it may fall out in clumps. Either way, losing your hair, no matter if you are a man, woman or child is a frightening experience. Once it starts, you may feel more comfortable wearing a hat or head covering over your head to hide the embarrassment. But are you contributing to the hair loss by wearing a hat or head covering?

You may think that only elderly people lose their hair. This is not true, young and old alike can experience hair loss. Sometimes because of job requirements you must wear a hat or hair covering. Jobs such as welders, policemen, firemen, waiters, cooks, baseball/football players and etc. require the wearing of hats or head coverings. What can you do if you are required to wear a hat and does it really cause hair loss? Let us examine the facts.

Placing undue stress on the hair can cause hair loss. No matter what age, pulling or twisting the hair can cause it to become brittle and fall out. Wearing hats can put stress on the hair if they are worn too tight or in the process of putting it on or off. Wearing a hat day in and day out can stress the hair and speed up your hair loss.

Constantly pulling your hat on and off or adjusting it can place enough stress on the hair and hair follicles to cause it to be brittle and weak. Pushing or twisting your hair to put it up under your hat can also cause stress on the hair. Weakening or damaging the hair follicles may cause it to not only fall out but to not re-grow either.

Wearing a hat or hair covering too tightly may cut off the circulation to the hair roots possibly causing hair loss. A constant blood flow is essential to nourishing and revitalizing hair roots causing it to grow strong and thick. Interrupting this flow may weaken and damage the roots, causing hair loss.

Wearing a hat or head covering too long in a warm climate can cause more sebum and oil to be excreted onto your hair. Sebum, a wax type substance is secreted by the sebaceous glands in your skin onto the hair follicles. The build up of sebum into the hair follicle can cause it to become plugged. This plugging effect can block oxygen from the hair follicles as well as accumulating dirt and bacteria. This plugging can contribute to your hair loss.

On the other hand, wearing a hat or head covering can block over-exposure to the sun on the hair and scalp, so there is a plus side to wearing a hat occasionally.

What can you do if you must wear a hat or head covering? First, wash your hair more frequently to stop the build up of sebum, oil and bacteria. Make sure you wash your hat, hatband or head covering frequently to alleviate the build up of oils or bacteria that can get into the hair follicles. Next, do not wear your hat or head covering too tightly. Wearing it too tightly may keep the blood flow from the hair roots.

There are more simple steps you can take if you are experiencing hair loss.

What Does Coconut Oil Have That Gives Your Hair Instant Volume and Shine?

Females who want to achieve that natural volume and shine to their hair I recommend using coconut oil as hair treatment. Men who are going bald and aim to reduce their baldness the healthy way, I also recommend using coconut oil as hair treatment.

Have you ever noticed why Asians and Islanders have thicker and shinier hair? It just looks healthy in every way. Well it’s because they use oil from coconut as a daily treatment on their hair.

Healthy hair that consists of volume, shine, no dandruff and a clean scalp is a combination of genes, diet and hair treatment.

The one thing we cannot control in any way is a person’s gene, but we can control our diet and hair treatment.

Eat plenty of vegetables and nuts that provide the protein and nutrients needed for healthy hair.

There are products out there that harm hair and strip away the protein, nutrients and health. Be careful when applying certain products like hair spray, gel, wax and shampoos as these are known to strip away the essential proteins and nutrients.

Here are two indicators you can use to determine how damaging a product is to your hair:

1) When having a shower, notice if the hair product you applied (hair spray, gel or wax) is hard to wash off. If it is hard to wash off, then it is most likely damaging your hair and you better use another easier-to-wash product.

2) Also, notice if your hair starts falling off or breaking off during a shower or after the shower. This is another indicator your hair is not in good health from the current products you are using. You will need to restore the health and vitality immediately. One of the best treatments to restore health and vitality is coconut oil.

How you treat your hair also does further damage to it. Whenever you are scrubbing your hair too hard the individual strands are being broken off. Instead, it is a good idea to be gentler when using your hands to wash off the shampoo and conditioner.

If you towel dry your hair, make sure you are not applying too much pressure on your hair. Applying hard pressure to pat dry your hair pulls your hair out very easily.

A better solution is to gently pat dry your hair as much as you can and let the air dry out the remaining water. Of course remember that during winter having wet hair can lead to you being sick so it is best not to dry your hair naturally in those moments. Instead, use a blow drier but set it to a softer blow. It is also advisable you don’t have the blow drier so close to your scalp.

If you have dry, damaged hair use coconut oil for hair restoration as it provides the essential oils that will restore shine, moisture, protein and vitality.

Coconut oil contains lauric acid, capric acid and vitamin E that feeds into your hair and provides you the volume, shine and clean scalp. It is also great for eliminating dandruff.

The other benefit it provides is that it stimulates growth for baldness; it strengthens each strand and enhances hair roots. Using it is very inexpensive and one of the most effective treatment products out there that nature provides.

You will notice your hair will increase in volume and shine and it will eliminate dandruff and leave it looking healthy in every way.

Hair Loss – Wearing Hats Causes Hair Loss

You may have heard that wearing a cap or hat can cause your hair to fall out. Just look at most bald men. Most wear hats. Did wearing their hats or caps cause their hair loss or did they wear their hats to cover the embarrassment of their balding head? There is some truth to hair loss being caused by the fact of wearing hats. Let us take a look at the truths and myths.

There are several main reasons men and women have thinning hair. Some could have wearing a hat as a contributing factor, whereas others do not. Let us look at each to see which could be contributed to the wearing of hats.

#1. Hereditary. Yes, sometimes hair loss just comes from your genes. If men or women in your family became bald, there is a likelihood that you could too. Sometimes thinning hair is just hereditary, and there is not a lot you can do about it. In this case, pay attention to the other contributing factors to help lessen your chances of hair loss.

#2. Lack of oxygen. Yes, a lack of oxygen to your roots can cause your hair to fall out. This can be contributed to wearing a cap or hat to tightly. If you are going to wear a cap or hat, make sure to wear it only snug enough to stay on your head. Wearing it too tightly can definitely cut off the oxygen supply to the roots.

#3. Lack of blood flow. Here again, this could be contributed to the wearing of a hat. Wearing your hat too tightly can cause the lack of blood flow that nourishes the roots. Make sure you only wear the hat tight enough to stay on your head but loose enough to allow blood flow to the hair root.

#4. Build up of sebum and oil. Sebum is a waxy substance that is secreted by the sebaceous glands in the scalp onto the hair follicles. This substance is used to protect the hair and the hair follicle. The build up of sebum or oil onto the follicle can plug the root causing a lack of oxygen used to nourish the root. Make sure you wash your hair and hat often to eliminate any build up of sebum and oil.

#5. Bacteria. Bacteria can grow on the scalp and kill the root. Here again, make sure you keep your hair and hat clean. Cleanliness can give your hair a better chance of staying in and not falling out.

Conclusion: as you can see, wearing a hat can contribute to hair loss. In order to lower the chances of your hat causing your hair to thin or fall out, you should do the following:

  • Make sure you wear your hat loose and comfortable. Only wear it tight enough to keep it on your head.
  • Make sure to wash your hair often. Keep the hair and roots clean of oil and sebum.
  • Wash your hat or headband often. Keeping your hat clean is very important as this will also keep your hair and roots clean.

Suppose you have been wearing a hat for a while and have hair loss. Now what?

How to Loosen Tight Braids in 6 Ways

You get home after a day of braiding. Your head still hurts. You thought your braids would eventually loosen up on its own but it’s as tight as it was in the hair salon. Suddenly you wish you had the superpower to turn back time.

But you can’t, so how do you get rid of the pain?

There are ways to loosen tight braids. Ideally, you will want to loosen the braids without destroying the box braids, cornrows or other African braid styles that cost you time and money. Here are some things that can help:

  • Massage
  • Shower
  • A pencil
  • Moist heat
  • Leave-on conditioner
  • Braid spray

Lucky for you, there are ways you can loosen your braids. Simply follow any of these tips below.

Massage your scalp

The relief that comes from massaging is not foreign to us. By gently massaging the exposed areas of the scalp, we are effectively pulling hair away from the scalp and loosening the braids. However, try not to get carried away as you still want to retain those braids.

Hop in the shower

Taking a shower immediately after installing the braids can make you question the longevity of the braids. But isn’t it much better than thinking about how long your hairline will last? Get into the shower and let it rain on your braids. As warm water runs down your hair, rub your scalp gently but not vigorously. You can apply a moisturizing conditioner at this stage. Pat your braids with a towel and leave it to dry naturally.

Stick a pencil or other object in

To loosen braids individually, stick a pencil or something cylindrical and smooth into the center of each braid. Use a thinner object like a skewer for smaller braids. Alternatively, combs can also be used to loosen the braids that are close to the scalp.

Get some moist heat

One effective way to loosen those tight braids is to apply moist heat to it. By placing a towel wet with warm water, you separate the small braids that are very close to the scalp. Leave it on your head for an hour. Another way to do this is to apply steam onto your head directly. You can do so using a handheld steamer or by running hot water inside a closed bathroom and just standing there. Be sure to save the water and use it for something else, like watering your plants or washing your clothes.

Apply leave-on conditioner

A fuss-free way to loosen tight braids is by applying leave-on conditioner. The conditioner will smoothen hair and reduce the tightness of your braids. However, use moderately. An excess of it will make your scalp oily faster and cause itchiness later.

Apply braid spray

Braid sprays come with many functions. Some relieve the itchiness brought about by keeping braids; others help in the removal of your braids. Regardless of which type of spray you use, braid sprays will help to ease tight braids by softening your hair. As the main function of a braid spray is to alleviate the negative aspects of installing braids, introducing a braid spray to your hair care regime will ultimately serve you.

The easiest way to prevent tight braids is not let it happen in the first place. Don’t hesitate to let your hair stylist know that your braids are hurting and they are too tight!

Can Hair Tonics Treat Hair Loss and Thinning Hair?

A few decades ago, hair tonics were very popular in styling hair but they have been replaced by products such as gel, serums and mousse. They are scantily available at some salons and drug stores, for the die-hard fans. These days, hair tonics have been made so that they perform more functions than giving hair a shiny appearance and holding it in place. Modern day tonics contain ingredients that combat hair loss and thinning.

The hair is the crowning beauty of a woman. Unfortunately this beauty may fall or thin due to several factors like stress, pregnancy, medication, diet deficiencies, strain on the follicles due to tight hairstyles and fatigue. Loss of hair can affect a woman in many different ways. That is why solutions to thinning and losing hair are being sought daily.

It is important to understand the reason hair is falling out or becoming thin. Hair loss caused by stress, medication, pregnancy, illness, and diet deficiencies usually stops once the pregnancy, stress etc is over. Eating a healthy diet rich in protein usually restores hair to its original condition in a few weeks. If the cause of thinning is due to tight hairstyles then finding a new way to style the hair will reduce the strain on hair follicles and allow them to recover.

Hair tonics strengthen weak hair and in so doing makes it more resilient and less likely to break. They can also contain vital ingredients to boost hair growth by reviving slugging follicles. Some hair tonics that are believed to reduce hair loss and stop thinning are:

Rene Furterer RF80 – this is a patented plant based formula that is very effective for treating thinning and weak hair. It is enriched with plant peptides and vitamins which restore the scalp’s nutrition to give hair more body and shine. RF80 should be used once a week for three months. After the scalp has been cleaned, apply it evenly onto each part. Massage the scalp to aid penetration and blood circulation. A test was carried out on women using this product and the results were overwhelming. In three months, 78% reported that their hair had been strengthened.

Plantur 39 caffeine tonic is a leave-in tonic designed to treat hair loss in women. Its main target is women who have reached their menopause. It contains caffeine derived from plant based sources which stimulates hair follicles to increase the rate at which hair is growing. As hormones are responsible for the menopause, Plantur 39 caffeine also offers hormonal balance to the hair and scalp. This hair tonic is so mild it can be used as an everyday treatment. In addition to treating hair loss and thinning, it also treats other scalp problems like oily scalp and itching and is safe for use by men and women with male or female pattern balding.

For maximum benefits from hair tonics, apply to a clean scalp and use them as directed by the manufacturer. Always massage the tonic into the scalp. Massaging the scalp helps to evenly distribute the tonic to the entire scalp while stimulating blood circulation. Do not be tempted to apply too much tonic as it will leave your hair greasy, and mess your clothing and bedding.

Both Rene Furterer RF80 tonic and Plantur 39 Caffeine tonic are best applied as part of an overall strategy to combat thinning hair or hair loss. For women in the menopause or suffering from other hormone related hair loss like female patter balding, the manufacturer recommends using the Plantur 39 Caffeine shampoo regularly for a more effective treatment. Caffeine counteracts the effects of testosterone on hair follicles and is used in hair loss shampoos targeted at men with male pattern baldness.

Rene Furterer RF80 is more suitable for strengthening weak, thinning hair. It is designed to be used once a week for twelve weeks. Each dose to be massaged into the scalp comes in a phial so there is no risk of using too much. It is best applied after using the Rene Furterer Follicle Stimulating shampoo which contains micro beads to gently remove dead cells on the scalp, unclogging follicles in preparation for the application of the tonic.

Itchy Scalp and Thinning Hair? Tips and Advice That May Help

The other day, I received similar emails from both a man and a woman who described having an itchy, tingling scalp with hair loss that seemed accelerated and was accompanied by thinning.  Both wanted to know what they could do about their scalp (which hopefully would also help the hair loss.)  In truth, there are several reasons that these two things occur side by side or simultaneously.  I will discuss these things in the following article.

The Most Common Cause For An Itching Scalp Accompanied By Shedding Or Thinning Hair: By far, the most common cause for this condition is an over reaction to your scalp to the androgens that are on it.  Now, this may be a sudden onset of symptoms because either your hormones are changing, the androgens are increasing, or your sensitivity to the androgens is increasing.  All three of these things generally occur with age.   And, these things tie into genetic or androgenic hair loss, meaning your standard, run of the mill, patterned baldness or thinning.  Sometimes this is patterned (typically with more loss happening at the temples, crown, or top) or it can be more diffuse (especially in women.)

The treatments depend on how aggressive you wan to be and how bad the thinning really is.  Some people will only seek relief for the itching.  Tea tree oil is good for this as are anti inflammatory shampoos.  If you want to address the thinning, you will need to address the sensitivity at the follicles. However with that said, you will want to try things gradually and you should be very careful about any treatment that can affect or change your hormones, as hormonal vulnerability might just be what caused this. I often recommend starting with things that are placed on your scalp rather than going internally and taking things into your body.

Itchy Scalp Accompanied By Telogen Effluvium (TE):  Sometimes, for whatever reason, your follicles will go through a shed or a sort of spring cleaning.  This can occur, again, because of changing hormones, changing medications, illness, stress, and many other things.  Often, you will get shedding that will sort of run its course, and hopefully, end after a few months.  In the meantime though, since so many follicles are being shed out at one time, you can get a tight, itchy, or painful scalp while this is happening.

Now, sometimes, the thinning is caused as a result of the shedding, but sometimes miniaturization takes place. What this means is that your hair is growing back thinner and finer as the result of being affected by the androgens that I discussed above.  If your regrowth looks fine though, you’re typically over the TE hump and can just focus on reducing the inflammation of your scalp.

Other Considerations: Dermatological Conditions Of The Scalp: Sometimes, your scalp itches or looks angry because it’s having some reaction due to injury, allergic reactions, yeast, infections, or products that are injuring it.  This is typically something that your dermatologist can pinpoint with a sun lamp.  Sometimes, you will have reactions on other parts of your body other than the scalp.  You might see sores or bumps on the scalp.  Ask yourself if you have changed products or regimens. Thinning with these conditions is somewhat rare, although I have heard of this happening.

Tips For Treating Children With Traction Alopecia Hair Loss

Children are just as susceptible to traction alopecia as adults are. The causes of traction alopecia in children are similar to grown ups. Hairstyles such as pigtails, cornrows and braiding can cause hair loss in kids. When a child’s hair is repeatedly styled tightly, over a period of time hair follicles become damaged and incapable of producing healthy hairs. The hair follicle may become so damaged that it stops producing hairs altogether. Hair loss occurs in the areas of the scalp that are pulled the most, usually at the front hair line, the nape of the neck and crown.

Traction alopecia in children can be treated in a similar fashion to the way it is treated in adults. In fact children have a much better chance of regrowing hair from damaged hair follicles if treated correctly. It is worth bearing in mind that children have more sensitive skin than adults and certain rules should be followed in order not to cause more damage to their delicate scalps.

Tip number one – avoid tight hairstyles

Avoid hairstyles that cause any sort of pulling whatsoever on hair follicles. Don’t use rubberbands, headbands, clips or any accessories that may cause tension on the scalp. If possible let the child wear their hair down.

Rule number two – do not use harsh chemicals

It is not uncommon for people that have children with unmanageable hair to be tempted to apply some sort of texturizing treatment to tame their wild unruly hair. Texturizers and relaxers contain powerful ingredients to chemically restructure the hair and can damage the scalp of an adult, talk less of that of a child. Although some of these products are made with gentler formulae and aimed at children, it is best to stay clear of any products that might interfere with the health of the child’s hair follicles.

Rule number three – maintain a clean scalp

A dirty scalp is an ideal place for fungus to grow which results in conditions such as dandruff. Ensure the scalp is kept clean by washing it several times a week. A clean scalp will also help remove any dirt and sebum blocking the hair follicles. Most shampoos, even those designed and made for children contain sodium laureth sulfate, a cheap detergent that is also an irritant. It’s a cheap foaming agent that “cleans” the hair by stripping away grease and your hair’s natural oils. Aim for a shampoo that is sulfate free and if you can afford it organic or plant based.

Rule number 4 – apply a hair promoting topical treatment

Hair loss treatments can be applied directly to the scalp to stimulate hair follicles into producing new hairs. While products like minoxidil are suitable for both adult men and women, it should not be used on a child. Instead other hair promoting topical natural treatments can be used. Bhringaraj has been used for centuries in India to promote hair growth and can be safely used on a child. It is a plant and can be applied on a child’s scalp without fear of any adverse effects. Bhringaraj is popularly sold in both its powder form and as an oil. Simply add some water to a teaspoon of powder and mix it into a smooth paste which can be applied to the areas where hair loss has occurred.

Rule number 5 – regular scalp massages

A regular scalp massage will increase circulation and also stimulate damaged hair follicles. Getting into the habit of gently massaging the child’s scalp will speed up their hair regrowth. It is best to use a lubricating agent such as oil to eliminate any friction which may cause further damage to the scalp or hair follicles. Bhringaraj oil or virgin coconut oil make excellent massage oils for the scalp and can also double up as deep conditioning hair treatments.

Following these rules will ensure more hair doesn’t fall out because of the excessive force applied to the hair follicles and that further harm isn’t caused to the follicles by the use of unsuitable hair products. Stick with gentle products and stimulate hair growth by increasing scalp circulation through regular massages to give the hair follicles a chance to heal themselves and start producing healthy new hairs.

Top 6 Ways Aloe Vera Can Make Your Hair Turn Heads

Aloe Vera, or the ‘wonder plant’ as it is often called, is a succulent cactus-like plant that grows in arid climates. It is most commonly known for its ability to moisturize and revitalize as it is comprised of 95% water. The ‘wonder plant’ is also a great source of nutrients, as it provides a number of essential vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Here are some ways the ‘wonder plant’ can be used to help revive your hair, bring back its luster, and moisturize like no other product on the market, naturally.

1- The Ultimate Moisturizer

Mix 1 Tablespoon of Aloe Vera Gel into your conditioner, or nix the conditioner altogether and let the Aloe revitalize your hair as it replenishes its moisture.

2- The Need For Speed

Does it take forever for your hair to grow? The ‘wonder plant’ provides hundreds of nutrients and enzymes that stimulate hair growth. Try gently massaging some Aloe Vera Gel into your scalp and letting it sit for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and a mild shampoo. Repeat as needed. You can also try adding some concentrated Aloe Vera juice to your favorite smoothie. Whether applied externally, or taken orally, extracts from the ‘wonder plant’ can help speed up hair growth.

3- Thicker is Better

Thin hair is more prone to damage and breaking, and looks a little wimpy in a pony tail. Beef up your locks by adding a little Aloe Vera into your life. Try a daily supplement, or stick with some Aloe Gel rubbed into your scalp and transform those puny ponies into luscious locks.

4- Shine, Shine, Shine

Wish you had shiny locks? No problem! Aloe Vera’s moisture-rich composition will help nourish your hair and help you achieve that shiny hair you’ve always dreamed of in no time.

5- Flake those Flakes

Many of the hair products on the market dry out your scalp and cause dandruff. The ‘wonder plant’ can help reduce dandruff, naturally. Try combining a few tablespoons of Aloe Vera Gel with some coconut milk and wheat germ oil. Massage into your scalp. Rinse. Repeat as needed.

6- Less is More? No way!

Did you know that Aloe Vera (in the form of a gel applied topically, or as a dietary supplement in the form of a capsule or concentrated juice) can help prevent hair loss? Among its other super-powers, the ‘wonder plant’ is an anti-inflammatory which helps stop hair loss.

Incorporate some Aloe Vera into your lifestyle and your beauty routine and watch as your hair is naturally rejuvenated.
