Love Island contestant Tyla Carr was devastated to discover that she was a postpartum hair loss victim.
Postpartum Hair Loss
Familiar to many this is the type of hair loss that affects young mums. It is the body’s reaction to childbirth. A time when hormones, having run wild for nine months, begin to calm down again. The hair can be a highly visible casualty. Having been in full growth mode during the pregnancy it will play catch up with more shedding than usual.
Tyla Carr must have felt destined to appear on Love Island. A serial dater she claimed to have exhausted the supply of all the available men within 100 miles of her home in Chipstead, Surrey. She had already appeared on another TV show, First Dates, in an attempt to find love, or maybe fame.
She caused a stir as soon as she walked into the villa during the 2017 series of Love Island. As a newbie, she was allowed to choose any of the boys to go for a drink with, and immediately chose the one most likely to create problems. Johnny had been a partner for Camilla until her arrival, but one drink with Tyla was enough to give him second thoughts. Camilla and Johnny would reunite, but Tyla had made her mark.
Large elements of the show were staged she would later claim. Sharing what she said were rules that the contestants had to follow which were not disclosed to viewers.
Life After Love Island
Tyla began working as a model after leaving the show. On a photo shoot in Mallorca, she reunited with Rossco, who she had originally met on the island nine years earlier. The couple would announce the birth of a son, Archie, a little over a year later. Another seven months after that the couple had separated in the full glare of the tabloid media.
Postpartum Hair Loss
Postpartum sees young mums losing hair a short time after the birth of their child. During pregnancy, the hair goes into growth mode and becomes one of the reasons the mum-to-be will appear healthy. Tyla spoke about her lovely thick hair, her words, becoming even more luscious.
Her problem hair loss began, she told the Daily Mirror, when she stopped breastfeeding and her hair began to fall out in clumps. It is the perfectly normal path for postpartum. All the more likely if you have experienced, as Tyla did, a noticeable improvement during the pregnancy.
The Hair Ambulance
While the postpartum element of the hair loss was entirely predictable, splitting up with Archie’s father, Rossco, when Archie was just seven months old, was not. It is the sort of traumatic emotional event that can also trigger hair loss.
The great news for Tyla is that like the vast majority of postpartum mums she made a full recovery. A temporary condition that usually lasts only as long as it takes the body’s hormones to regulate themselves normally again. Those suffering from hair loss associated with traumatic events are sometimes not so fortunate.
