TOWIE Star Jessica Wright Reveals Signs of Hair Loss

Jessica Wright Hair Loss The Belgravia CentreJessica Wright, star of hit ITV2 show ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ has been photographed with a large bald patch on the right-hand side of her head. The 26-year old lingerie store owner has yet to reveal the exact cause of the sudden hair loss, but there are several credible explanations for her predicament based on recent circumstances in her highly publicised public and private life.

Hair extensions harming hair health

As with many other TOWIE cast members, Jessica is well known for wearing hair extensions on a near-permanent basis. Although great for providing volume and body to the wearer’s hair, extended use of extensions can damage the wearer’s own hair causing it to fall out in patches similar to those in the photographs of Miss Wright.

Extensions place the wearer’s own hair under great tension caused by the way that they are fitted. Over this time, the strain causes the wearer’s hair follicles to stretch and become misshapen, pulling the hair out. Unfortunately the damage to the follicle can result in permanent hair loss through a condition known as Traction Alopecia.

Stress-related hair loss

Women experiencing excessive hair loss may also be subject to a condition known as Telogen Effluvium which stems from their hair follicles entering a resting phase (known as Telogen) prematurely and continuing to lie dormant. Hair attached to follicles which are in Telogen falls out and does not grow again until the follicle is reactivated.

Men and women undergoing periods of severe emotional stress may develop Telogen Effluvium, resulting in patchy hair loss like that seen in Jessica Wright. Apart from being under constant media scrutiny, troubles at home may have placed Miss Wright under additional stress. Fortunately hair lost due to Telogen Effluvium tends to grow back of its own accord.
