Naomi Campbell Losing Her Hair

Naomi Campbell Losing Her Hair – Naomi Campbell, who is famous for her temper tantrums, recently posed for a photo shoot with New York’s Dennis Basso. During the shoot it was revealed that she has a number of patches on the side of her head that is balding. Her hairline may be vanishing, but Campbell looked as good as ever.
Campbell, whose hair is naturally curly, has worn extensions over her natural hair for many years. This has apparently damaged her hair follicles, leaving her bald in a number of sections on her head.

One expert said; “It looks like traction alopecia, hair loss caused by the use of extensions.”
This occurs when the extensions pull on the natural hair and cause it to break off and damage the follicles. It usually affects the area just about the forehead, but can affect other areas of the head as well, as is the case with Campbell.


However, not all hope is lost for her hair. In some circumstances, the hair may grow back in the affected area in as little as three months to one year, given that she stops wearing the extensions.

A number of different celebrities including Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and Victoria Beckham have reportedly suffered from a similar type of hair loss. The issue is also common in individuals that wear their hair in tight buns and pony tails.
Any hairstyle that is worn tightly can cause this type of thing to happen. It is most common with the use of extensions as they constantly tug and pull on the person’s natural hair.

    No..She wears lace wigs and have her hair shaved in those areas to be able to glue the wig on in the best way and most natural looking possible. The wig just came off.

    Sorry, but you are wrong. Naomi Campbell has hair loss in those areas.Wearing a lace wig you do not have to shave your hair on the sides to get it to stay. There are a lot of ladies on you tube that demostrate how to wear a lace wig,. And non of these ladies shaves the sides of their head. The brush the natural hair back and put on a skin cap, then they position the lace wig in place.

    The best thing that Naomi can due is shave her entire head, and treat her scalp with castor oil and olive oil, and massage it in good. This should be done twice a day in the morning and evening before going to bed, massage the oils into her scalp. This will encourage healing and hair growth. In the mean time she can wear a whole wig with a skin cap. This will protect the scalp from further damage and will allow her own hair to regrow.
