Bebe Rexha once had to wear wigs because her natural hair fell out due to bleaching.
In the May edition of InStyle magazine’s Style Crush series, the Meant to Be singer confessed to her music and fashion inspiration Debbie Harry that her natural dark brown hair fell out as a result of her constantly dyeing it a peroxide blonde.
The 30-year-old asked the Blondie star for advice on maintaining the bleached look and Harry suggested letting the dark roots show through for a bit longer before making a trip to the colourist.
“How did you keep your blonde hair from not falling out when you first bleached it? Because my hair used to be so long,” Rexha asked, and Harry replied, “I didn’t keep it from falling out, actually! One thing I’ve learned is to keep a little bit of your dark roots. You can’t always maintain that when you’re on the road, but if you don’t let the colour touch your scalp, it gives your hair more strength. It’s probably going to break no matter what, though.”
The star then admitted her hair was once in such a bad condition that she had to wear wigs, but her hairstylist saved her locks by using Olaplex, a formula which rebuilds broken hair bonds and prevents breakage and damage.
“Tracey Cunningham saved my hair with Olaplex because I was wearing wigs at one point,” she shared. “I’m going to do what you said and let it grow out a bit. Dark roots look cool with dark eyebrows.”
