Don't wear them: 5 hats that make your hair dirty and weak
The appearance of your hair depends a lot on how you eat and whether you protect your strands with masks, conditioners, and permanent products (oils, balms, serums, sprays, etc.). It is equally important to choose the right hat.
The presence of a hat does not guarantee that your hair will be "thankful". It will be well-groomed, shiny, and less likely to fall out. Some of the products can harm both the scalp and hair if worn regularly. To know which ones and what is the best way to replace them, read the OBOZ.UA article.
1. A lot of decorative elements
Firstly, hats with rhinestones, sequins, beads and buckles reveal the bad taste of their owners and "cheapen" any look. Secondly, hair is constantly caught in these elements and mechanically damaged. Replace such models with minimalistic ones without decor and accessories.
2. Models not for the weather
Your head should not sweat or overheat as this is just as harmful as hypothermia. A wool or fur hat that is too warm will be appropriate in severe cold, but in other cases, it can lead to excessive sweating of the scalp. As a result, the hair roots become greasy and untidy. "Refreshing" them with dry shampoo is definitely not the best idea: it will take a long time to restore them. Choose hats according to the weather, and don't forget to take them off indoors (let the strands breathe).
3. Made of synthetic materials
Synthetics interfere with the skin's breathing: they do not allow air to circulate and create a greenhouse effect. Therefore, always pay attention to the composition of the product. The more natural it is, the less harmful it is to the head as it performs the function of thermoregulation. It should be noted that natural fur hats are great for insulation, but they can accelerate hair contamination. And 100% wool hats cause skin irritation. There's an interesting life hack: to keep your strands looking attractive, you can sew the inside of the hat with silk fabric.
4. Tight hats
Be guided by your own comfort. If you feel that the hat is tight or causes itchy skin, you should replace it with a larger one with a different composition. A hat that is too tight around the head impedes the flow of nutrients to the hair follicles (impairs blood circulation in the head), which affects the appearance and condition of the hair. In the worst-case scenario, hair can fall out more actively.
5. Knitted headbands and fur headphones
These accessories can be used for quick photo shoots, but definitely not as protection from the cold. Yes, these hats will keep your ears warm, but your hair will suffer and it will become dull, brittle, and require a long recovery. How to replace them? Choose hats made of natural fibers that completely cover the crown and ears.
