Guys, I know man-buns attract the ladies but continued styling may end in bad results for your hair. Scientific research has shown that those sexy buns are causing traction alopecia. Traction alopecia makes you bald.
Apparently there’s research out saying that the top bun/man bun will lead to baldness… This is such a sad day ?

When you wear a tight bun on your head, it causes stress on your hair follicles leading to PERMENANT damage. Which means those long, beautiful locks you have been growing for months will be gone with continued styling.
All you guys letting your hair grow out for the man bun better enjoy it because y’all won’t have hair later ?

However, don’t fret. There is a ‘new’ hairstyle trending among men. The ‘man-braid’ seems to be making a comeback straight from the 90s.

If you’re going to wear a hairstyle, adding the word ‘man’ in front of it really doesn’t make a difference. Just rock your braids or buns with pride (and maybe invest in some Rogaine early)!
