Entertainment Daily recently reported that Kelly Osbourne was devastated to find out she was losing her hair after she changed her hair colour from black to blonde. The 24-year-old celebrity, who is engaged to model Luke Worrall, explained to FOX News: “I went to dye my hair blonde from black and it was going really well and then something happened during that last process where they put the toner on and it made all my hair fall out and I was just like, ‘Cut it!’
“Luke laughed at me and told me he wasn’t going out with me if I looked like that! He went and bought me some blue shampoo so that my hair would not be so yellow.”
This isn’t the first time that the daughter of notorious rock legend Ozzy Osbourne has suffered from hair loss. Back in 2003, the same thing happened when she dyed her hair.
“What happened was I went from black to a weird colour blond, and I didn’t like it. It was too orange. So I went and bleached it again and it fell off, so I just shaved it into a mohawk.”
At the time, Kelly was only 18 and found the experience quite a shock. Hair dye does not always lead to hair loss but over-colouring can stress the hair and may cause breakage. Then again, Sharon Osbourne was rumoured to be experiencing hair thinning so perhaps it simply runs in the family.
Female pattern hair loss is hereditary and is most common in post-menopausal women. However it’s not uncommon in younger women and any number of factors, such as a lack of nutrients, hormonal changes, stress, and even damage caused by over-coulouring could instigate an earlier onset.
