How to manage trucker cap hair

So you’ve been wearing your GFOUR trucker cap all day? Hey we don’t blame you, we do too! Problem is, once you take off your GFOUR trucker cap for the day, you might find yourself with the dreaded cap hair line! 

Nobody likes having trucker cap hair, especially if you don’t have time to wash it before you go out at night. So what’s the solution then? Do you have to resort to wearing your trucker cap less so that you can dodge the cap hair? Or is there a way that you can get the best of both worlds? Ie: Great looking hair and more use out of your trucker cap? 

In this article, we’ll take you through how to manage trucker cap hair. Let’s get to it!  

How to manage your hair while wearing a trucker cap 

Back in the early 2000s, hat hair was all the rage. Folks intentionally wanted their hair to look messy - heck, do you remember that product called Bedhead? Nowadays, people are favouring a sleeker look for their hairdo - and trucker cap hair is no longer fashionable. 

So is it really possible to wear your trucker cap all day long and still have nice looking hair at the end of the day? Short answer: Yes, yes it is. All you need is the right hair products as recommended by hair stylists. Let’s take a closer look.

Condition your hair daily 

One easy way to beat trucker cap hair is to make sure that you’re conditioning your hair every time you wash it. Make sure you’re using a hair conditioner with nourishing ingredients to help restore moisture and make your hair easier to style. Believe it or not, this is an easy way to help prevent the dreaded trucker cap hair.  

Don’t wear your trucker caps too tightly

Did you know that hair follicles can become strained when circulation to your head is constricted? This can lead to hair breakage and excessive shedding if you aren’t careful. One way to avoid hair breakage and trucker cap hair is to make sure you aren’t wearing your cap too tightly. It should feel snug (like it won’t fly off your head) but comfortable at the same time. 

Wear your hair up 

If you have long hair, an easy way to avoid trucker cap hair is to wear your hair up in a ponytail, plait, messy bun or top knot. These pulled back hair styles can help to minimise the look of the cap hair ‘band’ that you might get if you wear your hair out with your trucker cap.

Use hair products

Using the right hair products in your hair can help to reduce trucker cap hair. Try using a water based hair gel or wax that provides a pliable texture. This way you’ll be able to quickly restyle your hair throughout the day as needed. 

It’s worth noting that hair products that claim to be ‘high shine’ or ‘rock hard’ waxes are more difficult to restyle. It might be worth carrying a small can of hairspray around with you if you’ll be taking your trucker cap on and off throughout the day.   

Make sure your hair is dry before wearing your trucker caps

Another way to reduce the dreaded trucker cap hair is to make sure that your hair is totally dry before you put your cap on. The last thing you want is your hair drying underneath your trucker cap, a surefire recipe for a hat hair disaster. 

If your hair is wet but you want to put your trucker cap on pronto, just spend a few minutes drying your hair with a hair dryer. Dry hair is easier to work with if you’re using hair products, making it less likely that you’ll end up with trucker cap hair.
