Kim Kardashian is experiencing some hair loss, seven months after giving birth. On Jan. 8, Mail Online posted a picture of Kim wearing her hair up in a bun. In the photo, her hair thinning (read balding) is very noticeable and evidently it is something that she has been struggling with.
"'It is well known that during the later stage of pregnancy you lose less hair due to hormones, making it thicker and lusher, but when you have the baby most women find they seem to be losing a lot more hair than normal. What with the rapid amount of weight Kim lost and dieting in the months after the birth, this may have accelerated the hair loss, giving sparser looking patches, we can clearly see how thin her hair is around the hairline," explained hair extension expert Tatiana Karelina.
Kim Kardashian's hair loss is common but could Kim be making the condition worse? By adding extensions to the hair, the scalp doesn't really get a chance to recover according to Karelina -- and Kim has allegedly been relying on a "weave" to keep her hair looking thick and luscious, although a rep for the reality star has denied that Kim wears extensions. If you compare photos of her, however, you will easily see that her hair is actually quite thin -- and when she wears it very voluminous, it doesn't look like her "real" hair at all.
Anyway, Kim's hair loss will hopefully be temporary and is not any more serious than any other woman who has had a baby. The media is going to jump all over Kim because that's what happens when you're famous.
