Turbans, Caps and hijab hair loss/ Thinning

Hairloss is a real problem for men/women who find that the constant wearing of a turbans, caps and hijab impact on their hair growth.

This turban is known as ‘kesh’. The turban is a length of material which is tightly wound around the head. The Sikh religion requires men to wear a turban at all times that pulls the hair to such an extent that it weakens it, leading to hair loss. This enables them to be recognised by other Sikhs as well as ensuring their visibility. One way of maintaining long hair is to wear a turban but what does happen is that this pulls down on the hair over a period of time which damages the roots and causes hair to fall out. Hair can also be lost when the turban is taken off or replaced back on the head.

Caps, helmets, or general covering of the hair weather it is for work or social reasons can also be one of the leading reasons as to why one may start to lose their hair. The constant stress on the hair especially when it is damp or wet due to sweat has a profound impact on the growth cycle of the hair. Hair is much weaker when it is damp or wet and must be handled with more care due to it being fragile, however any impact on the hair at this state can cause further hair loss and hair thinning.

Hijab hair loss / thinning can also be some of the reasons why hair loss or thinning can occur. Often ladies may wear their hijab too tight on their scalp or under caps are too strongly tied, which can lead to hair thinning. This can inevitably put a lot of stress on the individual, but please rest assured that our consultants will find solutions for you without you having to compromise on your hijab.
