Anyone have hair loss wearing cpap headgear?

Hi Kellie, the only way your cpap could cause you to lose hair is from the straps rubbing and making your hair fragile so that it breaks off in mid strand. It would not cause your hair to fall out from the hair folicle. Hair loss can be caused by many things including medication, stress (physical and/or mental) and hormones etc. It can be difficult to find the cause or to treat so you should discuss it with your PCP. Good luck and hopefully it will stop soon. Skylar

I wear a sleep cap over my hair and it serves as a barrier between my head gear and my hair. I started wearing it because my head gear's velcro kept pulling at my hair. They sell sleep caps at beauty supply stores and sometimes even in the grocery store. You might try it out and see if it helps.
Best of Luck to you,
