Keira Knightley Suffers Hair Loss: “For the Past Five Years I’ve Used Wigs”


The British actress explains that because she has constantly dyed and changed her hair, it has suffered a lot of damage. She admits she now wears wigs so her hair looks healthier and it has helped her natural hair recover over time:

“I have dyed my hair virtually every colour imaginable for different films. It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head! So for the past five years I’ve used wigs, which is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to my hair.”

Speaking on how beauty ideals differ depending on what country she is in, Keira says American women are often very polished and well put together, while British people are more inclined to go natural and low key with their look:

“I think we Brits are very low-maintenance. For good or bad, you rarely walk around New York or LA and see women as grungy as you do in London. In the US they always have their hair and nails done, which isn’t big culturally in England. I am not a sleek person in any way. When I look sleek, I feel like I’m pretending.”

Keira also recently welcomed her first child and says her beauty regime has changed slightly because for some reason she now has thicker hair:

“I have naturally crazy, curly hair, and since I’ve had the baby it’s become 10 times thicker. So now I’ve been finding quite a lot of dreadlocks. Tangle Teezer, £10.60, is the only thing that works for detangling my dreadlocks….My new approach is, “Do what you can remember, and don’t worry about it too much.”’
