Actress January Jones seems to be in somewhat of a hair crisis, although to the public, she looks as flawless as ever. Jones has been blonde, brunette, and a redhead, but now she is sharing the hard truth about the color changes and the toll it has taken on her hair.
The 35 year-old actress, who appeared as a blonde at last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, says she's going bald. "I have been every color and now my hair is falling out in clumps," she said during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. "I like it all colors, it makes you feel different according to what color it is, but I prefer to be blonde. My son recognizes me in photos when I am blonde. He says, 'Mama’. I've been blonde, red with extensions for this film, then blonde, then black, and now blonde again. I'm going to have to shave it off and wear a wig."
Often times, hair stylists will defend color by stating factors, such as genetics and medical conditions like thyroid disease, can play a role in hair loss, but all will agree that excessive hair coloring is also a huge cause of hair loss. CEO of Grettacole Salon in Boston told ABC News, "The chemicals that are used and the over-frequency in coloring your hair can result in breakage and hair loss".
Surprisingly, January is not the only star to have had trouble with her hair. Pop singer Lady Gaga and daughter of Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, have also allegedly suffered hair loss as a result of hair dye. According to Osbourne, three years ago a colorist forgot about her in the chair, which resulted in the TV Personality having bald spots throughout her head.
So what's a girl to do if you can’t color? Monahan says, “"My advice to anyone who colors their hair too much would be to use the right products for what you are doing and also make sure you are conditioning enough".
