Hi! I'm new to the forum. I have a balding spot too and I'm just wondering if it caused by wearing caps too often. I usually on the field, unloading what's behind the truck bed cover. I have a collection of hats and I wear different ones every day, even when I get to work. Anyway, is it true that wearing a hat strains the hair follicles which cause the hair to fall out?

Wearing hat doesn't make you bald if you wear it sometimes, But wearing tight hat everyday can cause damage to the skin and it could break the hair follicles and create bald batches which is also known as friction alopecia.

Try wearing hats that have a mesh construction...they allow air to penetrate the cap and thereby allow to head to breathe.

Wearing a hat doesn't cause any hair loss but your hat should be clean otherwise, it can cause a scalp infection. Due to which you may face hair fall.

It's an old myth not rooted in science... No different than the wives' tail that future hair loss can be determined solely by looking at the state of your grandfather's hair on your mother's side.
