What is Causing Nicole Kidman’s Hair Loss?

Nicole Kidman With Bald Patch The Belgravia CentreWhen most people think of hair loss, it’s usually male heads that they have in mind, but the recent stories linked to A-list actress Nicole Kidman show that the issue is in no way a single-gender one.

Kidman was last week photographed in Los Angeles sporting what appeared to be a bald patch on the side of her head. Speculation has arisen already as to the causes of this; with some suggesting that years of regular straightening and bleaching have taken their toll. Nicole has also not been averse to wearing hair extensions over the years, which can have a weakening effect on hair when repeatedly used. Either way, the photographs demonstrate clearly that when it comes to hair loss in women, fame and fortune are irrelevant.

Treating her hair with Malice?

When Kidman first appeared on the Hollywood scene in the late 1980s and early 1990s it was her curly red locks that gave her a truly distinctive appeal. Over the years she has experimented with a series of lighter, straightened cuts, meaning that it’s a long time since we associated her with her initial frizzier look.

Lifestyle, diet and genetics all have a part to play when it comes to female hair loss and thinning, but there are several options available to reverse these trends, that are both reassuringly inexpensive and most importantly, safe.

Are Kidman’s Eyes Wide Shut to the causes of thinning?

It is possible that Nicole is experiencing the effects of Traction Alopecia. When tension is placed on the hair shafts regularly and over long periods of time, the follicles that the hair grows from can become damaged. Traction Alopecia can lead to hair growth coming to a complete stop after a period of slowing down dramatically.

Another possible explanation for Nicole’s current follicular situation could be a condition known as Telogen Effluvium, where hair follicles become deactivated in the Telogen or resting phase of their growth cycle leading to shedding of hair about three months later.. Telogen Effluvium is often related to stress, and the reality of being consistently in the public eye could certainly be a contributing factor.

Should Nicole Just Go With It?
