Naomi Campbell Reveals Bald Spots During Vacation
For years now, we’ve all known about Naomi Campbell’s severely damaged hairline, which has been balding, thanks to her love for hair extensions. But just when you thought the story had blown over and that her scalp had perhaps healed, new images have surfaced showing Campbell’s hairline is just as bad as it was two years ago.
RadarOnline, who first reported about the supermodel’s diminishing hairline in 2010, recently published new photos of Campbell vacationing on a yacht in Ibiza. In the photos, Campbell’s wet wig is pushed back, exposing her bald pate.
The website spoke to a few hair stylists and specialists about Campbell’s hair nightmare and they all seemed as perplexed as we are.
“It’s hideous, what did she do? It looks really bad!” said hair stylist Kazumi Morton from the Neil George Salon in Beverly Hills. “I have been doing hair extensions for years but I have never had a problem like this.”
“I think whoever put the extensions in they put them way too close,” Morton added. “Around the hairline and the neck, the hairs are very delicate and fragile and you need to avoid attaching extensions in that area. They are way too close to the scalp as well, they need to be at least a half inch away.”
Morton says that it’s not only the placement of the extensions, but the amount of time Campbell has used them.
“If she had been doing it correctly every time and not so often it wouldn’t have caused this problem,” revealed Morton. “Hair needs rest, at least every three months or so, so she is doing it too much.”
However, stylist Jennifer J. of Juan Juan salons in Beverly Hills and Brentwood, claims that Campbell can save her hair if she eases up on the weaves and begins proper hair therapy.
“There is a good chance that it can grow back again, but if the trauma continues, the damage is going to become permanent and the hair won’t return,” she said, adding that cortisone therapy prescribed by a dermatologist could help the healing.
Hopefully, Campbell will let go of the weaves for a while and treat her hair. But she’s not the only star who’s had a bad weave day. Check out some other hair nightmares below. –nicholas robinson
