From what I know, during this period in France, rich men and even women shaving their heads and wear wigs.
It was for hygiene purpose. They were avoiding water because they were thinking that was the cause of illnesses and didn't wash often. To hide bad smells, they used perfume.
Fortunately, today, we take a shower every day!
