Celebrities are often idolized. We think they have it all together and some of us want to look like them or even wish to be them. And while most of your female celebrities may seem to have it all, even female celebrities suffer hair loss. Whether it’s after having a baby, alopecia, or even stress – here are some familiar names who have or had hair loss issues.
Hair Loss Due to Alopecia
A common form of hair loss is from alopecia. According to Healthline:
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition. An autoimmune condition develops when the immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign substances. Normally, the immune system defends your body against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria.
Some claim it is caused by stress but rather than being the cause, stress may trigger it in people who have the predisposition for alopecia.
Female celebrities who have suffered from hair loss with alopecia include Tyra Banks, Viola Davis, Neve Campbell, and Jesy Nelson from Little Mix.
Female Pattern Baldness
It’s not just men who suffer from pattern baldness even though you may most commonly hear about male pattern baldness. This is a hereditary issue and affects forty percent of women who have visible hair loss by the time they are age 40, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
Female celebrities who have dealt with female pattern baldness include Rosie O’Donnell and fitness Instagram star Kayla Itsines who revealed that she has a family history of female pattern baldness, which is why her natural hair is much shorter and thinner than most of her followers think.
Sometimes hair loss is caused by things like multiple dye jobs, hair extensions, and treatments. Celebrities who have had hair loss from a variety of overworked hair situations include Keira Knightly, Kristin Davis from Sex and the City, and Naomi Campbell
