"Love Island" star Tyla Carr felt "horrendous" when her hair fell out after the birth of her son.
The 25-year-old beauty - who appeared on the ITV2 dating show in 2017 - started losing large clumps of hair and developed bald patches when she stopped breastfeeding her seven-month-old baby Archie.
She said: "It was horrendous. I had always had lovely thick hair and it grew even more luscious when I was pregnant with Archie. But that all changed when I stopped breastfeeding.
"I began to notice clumps of hair coming out in the shower in the morning, blocking up the plughole.
"And there was so much hair around the house I used to joke that I would fill up the Hoover bag. Your hair is such an integral part of your beauty routine and it was devastating to see how thin and lacklustre it looked with bald patches around the temples."
Tyla - who split from Archie's dad Rossco Edmonds last month - has now taken steps to restoring her locks by taking new supplement GROW by Hair Grain after getting tipped off on the treatment by a friend.
She added: "My friend had lost her hair by the temples just like me and I couldn't believe how quickly it all grew back after she took Hair Gain. I have had to change how I part my hair to cover it and I want my lovely old bouncy hair back."
The reality star admitted it was "upsetting" to lose her "fantastic hair", but she has total confident that Hair Grain - which promises thicker, fuller hair in a month - will help it grow back.
She said: "I had read about women losing their hair after stopping breastfeeding but I never thought it would happen to me.
"I had always had fantastic hair so it was particularly upsetting to see it all falling out. I am confident that it will grow back quickly now that I am taking Hair Gain."
