Victoria Beckham received a lot of praise for her luscious locks during her pregnancy, but it seems that ever since she gave birth to daughter Harper Seven, the British socialite has lost a big chunk of her thick, luxurious mane, so much so that the phenomenon – a common occurrence among new moms – is causing her a lot of heartache.
“Victoria's always felt her hair is her biggest problem,” an insider reveals. “She used extensions for years, which left her with some patchy bald spots. When she fell pregnant her hair got shinier, thicker and stronger than it had been in years. She loved it and experimented with lots of different looks. But it's starting to fall out and she's heartbroken.”
Apparently the increased levels of oestrogen in pregnant women result in thicker hair; however, after delivery, once these levels start to decrease and return to normal, so does the quality of the hair. Word has it Posh has been so upset over her massive hair loss that she has been trying all sorts of remedies, ranging from hair loss supplements to herbal milkshakes, in an attempt to keep her rich locks.
