Can Wearing a Hat Cause Hair Loss?

Question:

Is it true that wearing a hat or baseball cap all day can cause hair loss or shedding?

Answer:

Since I was a teenager, I've heard that wearing a hat for an extended period of time can cause hair loss. But after researching various hair loss facts and myths, I'm pleased to say that wearing a hat cannot cause or facilitate baldness. Feel free to support your favorite sports team or arrive in style by wearing a snazzy hat :-).
