Would wearing a ‘head buff’, like they do on Survivor cause more hairloss?
as in suffocating the scalp etc. my whole head would not be covered I would wear it like a thickish headband. I am thinning all over/crown, and desperately need to cover up. They are microfibre with no seams. They are very light fabric, I would just wear it as a wide headband sort of thing.
I do not believe wearing a “head buff” or any form of head gear, bandana, helmet, or hat would cause hair loss. You cannot suffocate your scalp. If you want to go to the extreme and wear a very tight head gear everyday for hours at a time, you would (over the course of several weeks or months) cause traction hair loss.
