"your hair needs to move or else it falls out"





what? how do you figure that? wearing hats is a total myth.

my grandpa wore a hat everyday, all day for like 70 years till the day he died.

he died with a thick mop of grey hair

My Grandfather worked in a mine and wore a hardhat for 35+ years.

He's been bald ever since..

Plus, ask any hairdresser.

They'll tell you hair needs to be able to move freely, or it's going to fall out.

Puh-leeease!  No, baldness is not a growing epidemic.

The fact is that society in general looks at hair-thinning and male-pattern baldness under a stronger microscope.  There are infomercials, commercials, etc. that push this shit all the time.  Rogaine, plugs, transplants, etc.

Baldness rates are the same...it's the number of folks who see it as a"problem" that has grown.   Wink

btw, I've got a pretty damn good quaff.  From what I understand, you guys can bank on your hair-line/thickness by your mom's father.  Women's thinning hair is genetically based as well.  Yes, there are things that can cause hair loss, but most of the time, if they aren't genetic, if you change your ways, it comes back.  If it's genetic, oh well.

Funny how baldness rates have risen as people in general have become more vain/image-conscious.   Smiley


Axl4Prez2004 says, "Hey kids out there...and adults.  Be proud of who you are.  When you learn to look beyond the exterior and focus on the things that are most important, honesty, self-respect, kindness, etc. it will open up a whole new world."   love

I studied this in school last semester but I guess so far I've gotten lucky on the genetic train

My maternal Grandfather went bald when he was 20

My three brothers and I age 34-32 and me being 29 respectively stlll have thick heads of hair.

so how do u explain that one?


Did we just get lucky in the genetic lottery?

ya its hella complicated the gene can skip generations or not express itself even if you have it. of course there is no sure way to tell otherwise how would you explain cases of one brother having a full head of hair and the other being bald. there are tons of factors at work.

What about eskimos? They've been wearing hats for thousands of years. Winter athletes? Old dudes?

There's plenty of hair in those groups too.

Now, it may contribute but it's not a cause in itself.

Hair loss is genetic

Wearing hats and baldness is strictly coincidental and one of the oldest myths around.

It is absolutely not true though.

If hair needed to breath then how come u dont go bald on your chest or pubes?

whats your deal man. dont wear a hat if believe that strongly.

Uh, there's a difference between dying your hair using a box of hair dye you bought from a drug store, and going to a salon and having a PROFESSIONAL do it.

The dye you buy at a drug store is a far lower quality than what you'll get at a PROFESSIONAL salon Roll Eyes

Also, ever notice when somone dyes their own hair it usually ends up looking like shit?

That's because they aren't a professional, and have O idea what they're doing.

"Tight hats cause baldness."

While this may be a myth, hats do cause hair breakage and, to a lesser degree, split ends. Since hats are not washed as frequently as other clothing, they can also lead to scalp uncleanliness and possible Pityrosporum ovale contamination in men with naturally oily scalps.

Yeah, and do people go to school for years and years to become a dermatologist so they can know how to cut and dye hair properly?

No.

I couldn't care less about hats, and no I don't wear them.

Why?

Because I think people with hair past their shoulders look moronic with a hat on.

I stopped wearing hats when my hair got long.

Why were so many men all the way up to the 60's bald?

Because they never left home without a fedora on.

Hats at all times = your head not breathing, thusly causing hair loss.

I dunno, the reason I started this topic is because both my parents and a few other adults have commented on how many balding young people they see nowadays. My parents were kids in the 60s and according to them (not saying they are right) you just didnt see kids balding so young in such high numbers.

My dad siad his friend was starting to bald in university and he was the only kid he ever saw at that age losing his hair. I look around my university and spot too many to count without even really looking

so just got me curious.....

I studied this in school last semester but I guess so far I've gotten lucky on the genetic train

Did we just get lucky in the genetic lottery?


Hey R, of all places to have to hear this, a HTGTH forum of all places, this has to be pretty tough to stomach...
your maternal grandma banged that plumber with the full head of hair!   crying "No Grandma, NOOOOO!!!"  hihi

Seriously, somebody else mentioned it.  Genetics are a lot more complicated than just "getting baldness through one maternal grandpa."  However, the more male relatives you as a man have that are bald...that would probably put you at a much higher risk of being bald.  But again, who gives a shit?  It doesn't make you less smart, strong, or prone to dying earlier.

Please allow me to put forth some of my own personal observations working in a hospital.:
Alcoholics (or those temporarily completely drunk) seem to survive accidents sober folks don't. 
Alcoholics (^  ^             ^                ^           ^      ) seem to have a lot more accidents than sober folks. Smiley
and finally, I've noticed a lot of alcoholics tend to have more hair on their heads (males) at later stages of their lives.
I just thought those were interesting...again, like your dad's trip to campus, completely anecdotal and unscientific. Smiley
