Wearing a helmet and hair loss

Question by Patrick B.

For the last 2 years, I've had to wear a helmet for several hours a day. I never had any particular problems with my hair before. Now I have the impression that my hair gets greasy faster (I have to shampoo more often), and I've also been losing a bit of hair since then. Is this possible? What can I do about it?

Clauderer's answer

Yes Patrick, it's quite possible that wearing a helmet could be the cause of the problems you're having with your hair. There's a simple reason for this: when you wear a helmet, your scalp can't breathe as well. As a result, the sebum that is naturally produced to protect your hair will tend to stagnate inside your hair follicles rather than flowing outwards. Its presence inside the hair follicles will therefore prevent your hair roots from nourishing themselves normally. All of this may explain why your hair seems to be greasier and less plentiful. We recommend that you perform a diagnosis to check and confirm all this. And yes, of course we have a simple solution. Regular application of Clauderer Milk will clean your hair follicles thoroughly and prevent sebum from sticking to them. The roots of your hair will then be able to "feed" normally and you'll be able to wear a helmet without noticing any discomfort!
