May it be Leonardo DiCaprio’s or AvanJogia’s, man buns is the latest trend in the fashion world.
We cannot deny the omnipresence of man bun especially on the Tumblr and Instagram pages. But, do you know that these hairdos can leave you bald eventually? Quite shocking, isn’t it?
To all the male fashionistas out there- the hair experts say that these top knots can cause traction alopecia. It is a kind of alopecia which leads to gradual hair loss due to the pulling of the hair strands while wearing the hairstyle. If you, like some of the Hollywood celebs, go on wearing these man buns for months, then you are destined to a chrome dome.
The constant pulling of the hair follicles over long periods of time causes premature baldness. According to the dermatologist Sabra Sullivan, the issue is very common. ‘Every week, I met at least 2-3 patients who are losing their hairs due to traction alopecia’, added Sullivan.
Our follicles cannot withstand the pressure created by these tight hairstyles. As a result, they get uprooted. The traction leads to the death of the follicles and also causes permanent scars.
So, is it the time to say good bye to man buns? If your hairline starts receding, then it’s definitely is the right time to stop wearing it.
With traction alopecia becoming a common hair problem nowadays, most of the style icons are giving up wearing this hairdo. The man buns may appear chic to you, but it’s the wrongdoer, and you should avoid it when you still have time in your hands.
The owner and co-director of Mankind grooming studio for men- Caleb O’Donovan pointed his finger at Beckham to popularize these man buns. As Europe is the mother of these hairstyles, O’Donovan regards David as the main culprit.
‘Whatsoever set foot in as being counter-culture, when it becomes widespread, then the men who made it counter-culture don’t want to wear it any longer,” commented O’Donovan. He thinks the same will be happen with the man buns too.
Actually, he was right to some extent in saying so. Leonardo DiCaprio has already got rid of his tight buns.
