"My hat made me go bald"

The myth: Wearing a hat makes you go bald

I'm sure we've all once heard going bald can be a result from wearing a hat. In most cases when your told this you quickly take your hat off.

But how does one go bald? Balding can be the result from genetics, stress levels, diseases, medical treatments, and poor life choices like smoking. Probably the most popular is male/female pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) has DHT (dihydrotestosterone) to blame. DHT absorbs nutritionist hair follicles should be getting which causes miniaturization. Miniaturization in return makes the hair you once had into barely noticeable peach fuzz.

It's all hormonal. So if you've had a hat you've been wanting to wear go out and wear it! There's no one to blame but yourself, genetics and stress which produce the DHT. The correlation between going bald and wearing hats is really just that. Balding was probably in the works and the hat is taking the blame. If you are already thinning and wear a hat to cover it up, you may just be furthering your baldness by stressing about it. The hat is just the innocent bystander.
