Does Shaving Your Head Cause Balding?

No, shaving your head will not cause your hair to fall out. The hair grows from the follicle, which is several millimeters underneath the skin. Even if you shave your head down to the skin, you are cutting that hair several millimeters above the follicle, and the follicle itself is not damaged at all. It is similar to a regular haircut- it doesn’t harm the hair or cause thinning/balding.

However, many people who shave their heads notice the thinning and balding process more significantly. Longer hair can help to disguise areas where the hair is thinning or balding. Once hair is cut short, there is less coverage and the areas that have started to thin become more apparent.
