Are Beauty Treatments Making Kim Kardashian Bald?

We all know that it isn’t easy to achieve Kim Kardashian’s hairless, poreless, and all-around fabulous look, but it seems as though the hours spent in the salon may be taking a toll on the reality star.

While the old adage purports “the higher the hair, the closer to heaven,” it looks as though Kim’s over-reliance on extensions and weaves to give extra oomph to her naturally straight, brown hair may only be getting her closer to the a hairless head. reports that, since giving birth to daughter North, Kim’s hair is thinner than ever, and her continued use of sewn-in hair is just making things worse.

“It is well known that … when you have the baby, most women find they seem to be losing a lot more hair than normal,” explains hair expert Tatiana Karelina. “What with the rapid amount of weight Kim lost dieting in the months after the birth, this may have even accelerated the hair loss, creating sparser looking patches that we can clearly see along the hairline.”

Tatiana adds, “Weaves put extreme pressure on the hair and scalp. Often too heavy and tight, the pulling and weight [of the weave] can cause severe migraines and traction alopecia, which actually increases hair loss, rather than helping to recover healthy hair growth.”

We’re sure that a few unflattering photos of a patchy hairline won’t convince Kim to give up her glam ‘do anytime soon — can you picture her in a pixie cut?
