Is Naomi Campbell going bald?
London: Supermodel Naomi Campbell shocked onlookers when she accidentally revealed a bald patch beneath her long wig while shooting in New York.
The 40-year-old star was shooting for designer Dennis
Basso`s in New York when a gust of wind caught her off-guard
and revealed signs of a receding hairline.
It seems that years of wearing tight hair extensions
have taken as toll on the model`s natural hair, causing severe
breakage. Hair loss associated with hair braiding, weaving,
and extensions is known as `traction alopecia`, Daily Mail
Celebrities like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton,
Victoria Beckham and Alexandra Burke are all reported to have
suffered similar symptoms as a result of their extensions.
While prolonged traction can cause permanent loss of
hair in the affected areas, it is reversible if caught early.
She wore a green swimsuit and also paraded a series of
fur coats for the shoot.
Campbell, a PETA campaigner who famously declared in
the 90s that she would rather go naked than wear fur, had a
change of heart in recent years. PTI BK
