In an emotional video she shared online, the Loose Women star revealed she was starting to go bald after going through perimenopause – the phase which takes place before ovulation stops.
Nadia was filming the video to show off a product she loved to use on her hair but it quickly became clear she was finding it upsetting.
She then bravely opened up about her hair loss and cried when she showed parts of her hairline that was thinning.
Nadia, 52, said: “I used to have the most amazing hair. It was my crowning glory. It was my favourite thing about myself.
“My hair is not like that anymore, my hair really started to change after I had my kids. Bloody kids. I lost a lot like a lot of new mums do but it started to change a lot, the texture…having gone from naturally curly hair. It would go frizzy.
“But when I started going through Perimenopause I think I lost a third of my hair.”
Leaning in to the camera, Nadia pushed her fingers to her forehead and ran her hair along her hairline.
She continued: “People always say my hair is so thick and amazing. This is where it’s balding. I’m losing it all over.
“It sounds awful saying it as people lose all of their hair to alopecia or cancer treatment but it doesn’t make it any easier, the fact that I’m losing my hair.”
