Rita Ora Wears A Hairstyle That Risks Hair Loss

rita ora hair plaitedShe’s normally known for wearing her hair in Marilyn Monroe style peroxide blonde curls, but popstar Rita Ora changed it up this week by styling her hair in tight French braids with what looked like extensions attached at the back of her head.

The Hot Right Now singer was performing at the Lytham Proms Festival Weekend near Blackpool, Lancashire on Sunday night, and teamed her novel new hairstyle with a crop top and baggy leather trousers and a large gold belt, seemingly channelling boxer chic.

Boxing Clever

The 22 year old is known for her ever-changing look, and so it’s unlikely that her hair will remain in braids for long. However, if she becomes fond of the tightly pulled hairstyle, she should be aware of the risks that come with it, namely hair loss from traction alopecia.

Traction alopecia occurs when undue pressure is put on the hair follicle, pulling on the root. The result of this, over an extended period of time, can be hair loss. as hairs are pulled out and the follicles damaged. Ceasing to wear the hair in tight styles and not using hair extensions is the first step towards stopping the damage, but sometimes hair will not grow back by itself and needs treatment.

Belgravia have found that a high strength minoxidil cream can achieve great regrowth results for people with damage from traction alopecia. Minoxidil is a topical hair loss medication that has been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, and is applied twice a day in a matter of seconds.

Whilst the exact mechanism that makes minoxidil so effective as a hair loss treatment is still unclear, the fact is that it has achieved great results for many thousands of men and women at Belgravia, just take a look at the before and during treatment photographs on our success story blog.

Hair Loss from Braiding or Extensions?

At Belgravia, an initial free consultation will determine whether your traction alopecia is treatable, and realistically what results might be expected. The best minoxidil formulation is then decided upon by your dedicated hair loss specialist, in terms of both the strength and the added ingredients.

Alongside minoxidil, a truly comprehensive treatment plan contains a variety of hair growth boosters such as the HairMax LaserComb, which can speed up the regrowth, and Hair Vitalics, Belgravia’s specially formulated nutritional supplement that helps keep hair healthy and looking great.
