To get the facts straight: Hair loss is nothing to worry about per se. On average, we all have around 100,000 single hairs. Losing 70 to 100 of them per day to your pillow, your comb or your partner’s fingers certainly won’t hurt your man bun. Because that hair will re-grow. In fact, that hair falling out just keeps you from looking like Chewbacca.
MORE THAN JUST GENETICS
The problem is, not all lost hair grows back again. This might be for genetic reasons: Statistically, 40 per cent of all men are genetically prone to hair loss. So, if you’re one of them, enjoy your man bun as long as you have it.
But even if you’re part of the lucky 60 per cent, you should take good care of your mane. That includes washing it on a regular basis with the right product, not wearing headgear day-in and day-out (difficult with a man bun, we know) and not exerting too much stress on it. Otherwise you might compromise both your genetic advantage and your trendy hairstyle.
