Warning to LongTerm Weave/Braid Wearers: Let Naomi Campbell's Huge Bald Spot Hair Loss Be A Lession! (PHOTO) (7441 hits)

Naomi Campbell's modeling career has definitely stood the test of time, but sadly we can't say the same about her hair. All those years of wearing hair extensions and weaves have really caught up with the British bombshell, who was spotted in Ibiza by paparazzi this week showing off a massively receding hairline and mangled mane. We've seen bald spots on the British beauty before, but this is way bigger than a spot. In the past Naomi has done a pretty good job covering up the patches and jagged edges with her classic bone straight weave and blunt bangs.

But this week the bikini clad model was spotted splashing around in the ocean with her Russian billionaire beau Vladislav Doronin, which isn't conducive to keeping her hair in place--thus exposing her shocking hair loss to the prying photogs. Many believe the 42-year-old model is suffering from traction alopecia, a hair loss condition that is often caused by wearing weaves and extensions over an extended period of time.

Karen Mitchell, hair extensions expert and owner of True Indian Hair, agrees with that assessment. "It's surprising to see Naomi like this--but we see this all the time," Mitchell told The Huffington Post. In fact, several celebs including Serena Williams, Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian are rumored to have suffered from the condition as well. Naomi's case seems pretty severe. "At this stage it's probably permanent and irreversible," said Mitchell after studying the picture of Naomi with her tattered edges. "It looks like she waited too long to treat the issue and that her follicles are now totally damaged."

If Naomi has any chance of saving what's left of her hair, Mitchell says she should probably lose the weave that's currently attached to her natural hair. That'll prevent further breakage, she said. Mitchell suggests that the supermodel invest in a fitted custom wig, which will alleviate the strain on her remaining hair and completely cover her bald patches. Naomi has a bit of time to pull herself together before she makes her reality TV debut on "The Face." And with an estimated net worth of $48 million, she can certainly afford the best wigs that money can buy.

You can also see the same thing when looking at Valerie Simpson because of her long term braid wearing has done to her hair line.

Uh oh...this happened to a friend of mine as well.

OMG! This has to be warning to those who are using tight braids for long term periods. I have seen siutations like this too often. Braids are beautiful, but also not worthy of scalp damage to a head hair. I'm sure she may choose to wear wigs, or do as Brother Rich said, SHAVE IT ALL OFF! Bald is looking great on women. One of my co-workers went bald only a week ago. She's stunning!

Hello Misrael,

I think it's alright to have different looks, but women must do so in moderation or face the consequences.... Alopecia and irreversible scalp damage like Campbell.

Baldness isn't pretty guys except if it's on Kojak.

Hey Jen...I don't know about that...some women have that something that lets them pull it off. It turns heads and makes them look...stunning...cool...definitely avante guard. Not many can do that...but some can.

@ Brother Rich,

I think I'll have to agree to disagree with you on this baldness notion... I haven't known a man yet that would rather rub his hand on a bald woman's head rather than his fingers through a woman's hair. I suppose if a man has no other choice, he'd just have to do what he has to do. Ha!
