Old Myth: “Men shouldn’t wear a hat all the time. Men who do will go bald.”
This isn’t true. Illness, medications, stress and definitely genetics all can play roles in when and whether a man will lose his hair. Wearing a hat has no bearing on the matter. Logic tells us that this is true,
or there would be regions of the country where nearly all the men would be bald.
Where there is a grain of truth to this myth is in the fact that sometimes men who wear hats suffer from scalp irritation due to the collection of perspiration on the skin and the degradation of the skin tissue as a
result. This kind of problem is generally seasonal and “comes and goes”.
