According to the News of the World tabloid newspaper, former glamour-model Katie Price, also known as Jordan, has allegedly developed several bald patches.
Ms. Price’s spokesperson stated: “Katie has lost some hair after an unfortunate situation with a hairdresser in the States.” However, it’s likely the problem is more extensive than that, as years of peroxide and extensions have begun to take their toll.
Relentless dyeing and bleaching, as well as hair extensions weighing 3 times the recommended amount, have made Jordan’s hair dry and weak, according to the Daily Mail, which also ran a story about Katie Price’s hair loss. This ‘over-styling’ has allegedly caused Ms. Price’s hair to begin thinning, with bald patches starting to appear.
The distraught celebrity is by no means the first to suffer from female hair loss, with plenty of women, famous and otherwise, bleaching their hair regularly. Thankfully, this damage is reversible to some extent. The hair can sometimes be restored if it is allowed to return to its natural colour, thereby replenishing the moisture that was removed by the peroxide chemical in bleach.
Traction Alopecia is also a risk for women who tug on their hair follicles by constantly styling or tying back their hair. The hair extensions that Jordan famously wears carry a real risk of Traction Alopecia when used over a sustained period of time.
