Planning to sport the latest trend in men’s hairstyle?

Before trying to copy the looks of celebrities such as Leonardo di Caprio, Brad Pitt, Jared Leto, and Orlando Bloom, you should first hear what experts have to say about man buns.

Experts have revealed that the hairstyle, which involves men “scraping” back their locks into a knot on the back of their heads, can actually make men go bald. They believe that wearing this hairstyle puts too much strain on the follicles causing hair to fall out.

Dermatologist Dr. Sabra Sullivan told Mic: “They’re putting traction on the hair follicles that the hair is not really meant to take.”

The hair trend that has taken male fashion by storm can make men go bald.

Moreover, the dermatologist explained that the practice can also result to follicle death as well as permanent scarring.

Known as traction alopecia, the condition is commonly observed among African women who wear too-tight braids or weaves. This type of hairstyle causes acute baldness around the forehead and temples.

Other dermatologists such as Dr. Francesca Fusco of Wexler Dermatology explained that traction alopecia is caused by wearing a hairstyle which continuously pulls really tight on the hair and hair follicles. She emphasized that it has to be continuous to cause damage.

But some experts think otherwise.

“With regards to the man bun, if they’re not pulling it tight, they’re not losing hair,” Fusco said.

When you're thousands of feet in the air and you witness a child having an asthma attack with no medication in sight, what are you gonna do? Create a makeshift nebulizer the McGyver way, of course.

This was the dilemma faced by robotic surgery doctor Khurshid Guru when he was on board an Air Canada flight from Spain en route to the US. Guru, who attended a medical conference in Spain, was returning home aboard the transatlantic flight when the incident happened. They were four hours into the seven-hour flight when he heard that a toddler was suffering from an asthma attack without any access to medication, since the parents mistakenly packed the medicine in their checked baggage. Although he usually didn't handle young patients, he didn't hesitate to help.

Dr. Khurshid Guru is the Director of Robotic Surgery at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in New York.
