Emmerdale star Laura Norton horrified as her hair ‘falls out in clumps’
EMMERDALE star Laura Norton has opened up about the terrifying moment her hair fell out “in clumps”.
The Kerry Wyatt actress, 38, bravely spoke about her battle with hair loss – which began when she was just 16 and dealt her a devastating blow when she joined the soap opera.
Laura explained in an open letter published in New magazine that she started taking synthetic hormones to combat her “terrible” periods.
She said, “What they never told me was that certain pills are high in testosterone and attack hair follicles, causing the hair to become thinner and weaker and then fall out.”
The actress revealed things got really bad when she joined the ITV soap.
Laura wrote: “I got my dream job as Kerry Wyatt in Emmerdale and boom my hair fell out in clumps.”
She added: “Thank you Universe, great timing! It wasn’t good for the old self-esteem.”
However, Laura said things improved massively when she contacted her local trichologist – a hair doctor – in Newcastle, where she was living at the time.
She said she was given drops for her hormones and ferritin stores, which help your body store iron.
The star was also given a “hair friendly” version of the pill to replace the pill she was previously taking and her hair started to recover.
