Bendo's hair

Is it an advantage getting out of chokes? Someone with BJJ experience please chime in.

He has that huge bunn of hair right on his neck, and when anyone gets him in a front choke etc.. they have a big ol mass of hair between their arm and his neck. It can't be as tight as a skin on skin choke.

I've rolled with people with longer hair, and I find it more annoying than anything else. Not really sure if it would hinder/help any significant amount.
