Unfortunately for Tamara, that long blond hair could be at risk. The star of This Morning, Watchdog and countless reality TV shows has been pictured with bald patches at the side of her head.
The effects of extensions
Traction alopecia is hair loss caused by excessive amounts of tension on the hair shafts. This causes the hair to be pulled and can damage the follicle. Over long periods of time, under these circumstances, the condition will cause the production of hair to slow down and finally cease.
Although it is mainly extensions that cause this condition, traction alopecia can also arise after too much usage of weaves, glues and tight hairstyles. As we all know, many celebrities have different and unnatural hairstyles every time they are spotted in public, so it’s no surprise that traction alopecia is a growing cause of female hair loss among rich and famous.
