If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities manage to look so perfectly coiffed, you may derive a little guilty pleasure from this latest candid snap of Britney Spears. The troubled pop star was spotted shopping in Sherman Oaks, California this week with possibly the worst hair do ever seen on a former style icon. Her dark roots are visible, her hair extensions look ratty and she even appears to have bald patches where her extensions have damaged her own hair.
Traction alopecia has been in the news a great deal lately, as unfortunate celebs such as Naomi Campbell have been captured on camera with obvious hair loss where extensions have taken their toll. The constant tension and pulling on the hair can damage the follicles, causing hair production to slow down and eventually stop. The condition can be reversed with suitable hair loss treatment, provided no further tension is applied while it recovers – so constantly renewing hair extensions is not a great idea.
