Pixie Geldof’s hair has hit the headlines again. The Daily Mail yesterday revealed photos of the fashionista sporting new “straggly blond” hair extensions. The paper said the “straw-coloured” locks had been glued to her natural hair and, along with her baggy clothes, made her look “unfortunate”.
The paper suggested that Pixie, who has signed up with model agency Next, may have been forced to wear the extensions to cover up thinning hair and bald patches which they exposed in photos just over a month ago.
Back in July the Daily Mail ran a story with the headline, ‘Is Pixie Geldof Losing Her Hair?’ The paper showed pictures of Pixie with what looked like bald patches and said hair dye could be making Pixie go bald.
While hair dye does not make you go bald, unless it is left on too long (see our story on Pixie below), excessive overstyling can cause the hair to become weaker, making it more prone to breakage. Excessive tension can lead to a temporary form of hair loss called traction alopecia.
While we previously said Pixie was not going bald, her new hair extensions are not going to help the poor sate of her scalp and will make her more susceptible to traction alopecia. If she does not give her hair a rest, she may find a significant increase in shedding. But there is help at hand. There are proven hair loss treatments that can help the hair return to its former glory. In addition, hair growth boosters can help the hair follicles get back to normal.
