I say that it does need actual oxygen.



Why do women go around telling each other that tieing their hair too tight will lead to it falling out?  That's because when it is too tight, the hair does not get the oxygen it requires.



I say that the reason men loose their hair so much is because covering your head leads to oxygen deprivation of the scalp.  My hair will start to fall out relatively soon after wearing a hat for any length of time.



I think, maybe, some day the scientists will be able to figure this out but I will not hold my breath.
