: The good folk at Radaronline.com tracked down a hair expert to speak on Kim’s hair loss and her weave.
Here’s what the expert had to say:
“Birth and rapid weight loss are two factors that have triggered Kim’s thinning hair and made her opt for hair extensions to boost her diminished hair volume,” celebrity hair expert Tatiana Karelina tells Radar exclusively. . .
“In spite of giving instant full, thick hair, weaves put extreme pressure on the hair and scalp,” she says. “Often too heavy and tight, the pulling and weight [of the weave] can cause severe migraines and traction alopecia, which actually increases hair loss, rather than helping to recover healthy hair growth.”
“I would not recommend that Kim keep that weave in her hair,” Karelina says.
Instead, she should “opt for lighter, non-damaging extensions,” she continues, “or a simple clip-in that can be taken out often to relieve the pressure on the hair follicles and the scalp.”
