Do Man Buns Cause Baldness?

Man buns have been growing in popularity, thanks to celebrities like Jared Leto, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Chris Hemsworth, to name just a few. 

But are they causing men to go bald? They answer, they can. 

I talk a lot on the blog about women who put themselves at risk of traction alopecia, a condition that can lead to irreversible damage to the hair, as well as hair loss, but the risks extend to men as well. Men who constantly wear their hair in tight styles, like the man bun, are at risk of damaging their hair, and of permanent damage, such as hair loss. I recommend changing up your style regularly, to avoid constant tension and pulling of the hair, but the best thing for your hair is to avoid these styles, or limiting their frequency at the very least.
