Hair is very much a part of our culture, whether it be the type of hair, the length, or how it’s worn. Many people choose to grow their hair long for comfort or style reasons. However, if you choose to keep your hair shorter, the decision may have been made out of necessity due to damage caused by wearing hats regularly. While many people think nothing about putting on a ball cap at the beginning of summer, over time, this can cause significant damage to their hair, resulting in thinning or baldness if they continue wearing hats as part of their daily attire.
The benefits of wearing the hat for your hair
As women, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our appearance. One way to do this is by wearing hats that complement our hair. Hats can provide many benefits ranging from protection against the sun and wind to adding volume and shine to lackluster locks.
The warmth that it gives: this is probably the closest you’ll get to feeling like your hair got a new keratin treatment and not dyed at all. Wearing a hat creates a sort of insulation for your hair, keeping them warm and protecting them from harsh weather elements such as wind and cold.
It’s protective: there’s no way around it; wearing a hat will protect your delicate strands from UV rays, pollution, and such harmful things without making you look like those older women with white veils on their heads (which do look cute, though).
It can create a fantastic hairstyle: I mean, come on, take a look at these handsome gentlemen above! They’re rocking their hats so well that it looks like the hats were made for them! Using a hat to create a hairstyle is easy and fun.

So, if you’re curious about how wearing a hat can affect your hair, keep reading!
Hats may be protective and keep us warm, but they aren’t kind to our locks. When you take off your hat at night, there is no doubt that you will see the condition of your hair has deteriorated significantly. The struggle is real. So why does hat hair look so bad?
A shiny forehead and a messy bun or ponytail are tell-tale signs that your hair has been crushed by the weight of your hat all day long. If you wear a cap under your helmet while cycling, playing tennis, or at work in air-conditioned rooms, there is no doubt that your hair will have lost volume and shine once you remove them. You can also suffer from split ends if it isn’t removed correctly.
