An actress' hair is falling out, and she's blaming it on hair dye. "I have been every color, and now my hair is falling out in clumps," January Jones of "Mad Men" said. "I've been blonde, red with extensions ... then blonde, then black, and now blonde again. I'm going to have to shave it off and wear a wig."
The 35-year-old is known for her good looks and her blonde hair. In her 1960s clothes, as her character Betty Francis in "Mad Men", she resembles the classic look of a Tippi Hedren or a Grace Kelly in an Alfred Hitchcock movie. However, at the recent SAG Awards, on Jan. 27, the blonde wore her hair pulled back in what TV Guide called "Ziggy Stardust-inspired." Some may feel she would have looked better with a hairstyle she's known for in "Mad Men."
Can Jones blame hair dye for her hair disaster? According to Philip Kingsley, in his article "10 Truths About Hair Coloring," the answer is "no." "During my many years of practice in my London and New York clinics, I have never been able to associate hair loss with coloring. I did an eight-month study involving 30 women and three men, who all underwent various types of hair coloring, and none showed signs of extra hair loss. A bad color job, however, can cause hair breakage, which may be confused with extra hair loss."
Did January receive some "bad color jobs" in her past? Is that what's to blame for her hair loss?
