Lady Gaga has revealed that her hair has started to fall out as she constantly dyes it.

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, talked about her hair loss and beauty secrets to PEOPLE magazine (via Daily Mail).
Gaga, a natural brunette, said that she misses her dark hair when she goes to "get a chemical haircut because my blonde hair is falling out."
She also said that she sleeps with her makeup on seven days a week. "That is not good for your skin, but I'm blessed with good genes."
The singer revealed that she always uses sunblock on her face, saying that she does not like to tan her face as it is bad for wrinkles.

The 'Born this Way' singer said that Princess Diana was one of her beauty influences along with her mother Cynthia Germanotta.

Gaga advised fans that the best beauty tip she could give would be to "Just go with your gut." She added, "Whenever you try to be someone else, it's boring."

When asked what was the one treatment she would likely get from a spa, Gaga immediately revealed it would be a foot massage. She says she would need it to relieve her aching feet from constantly wearing her outrageous sky-high heels.

Last month Gaga revealed that she stays slim by following what she called 'The Drunk Diet.'

"I am on the drunk diet," Gaga said. "I live my life as I want to, creatively. I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I am working. But the deal is I've got to work out every day, and I work out hung over if I am hung over. And it's about the cross-training and keeping yourself inspired. I have to say, I do a ton of yoga."

Basic Healthy Hair Tips From NYC Dermatologist Dr. Channing Barnett

Chemical damage from hair dyes, perms and products that straighten the hair are major contributors to hair damage that occurs over time. However, Dr. Barnett says what many people don't know is once hair is damaged you can't repair it.Once hair is damaged, the protective lipid layer is gone, causing frizz, "bad hair days", dryness and a dull appearance. For women with damaged hair, Dr. Barnett says moisturizing conditioners are necessary. “One of the most common misconceptions about hair is that it is alive, when in fact hair is nonliving and does not heal itself once it is injured,” said Dr. Barnett. “For this reason, once the hair is damaged it cannot heal itself except through new hair growth at the scalp. Women need to understand that the very things that they do to hair to make it appear beautiful, such as using hair dyes, perms and products that straighten the hair, will eventually end up damaging the hair’s structure and ultimately affect its appearance.”Products to minimize the effects of hair damage include conditioning shampoos in combination with hair conditioner during the rinse. Dr. Barnett also says hair products with dimethicone can restore shine, reduce static electricity and make hair more manageable. Serums applied to the hands and run through the hair – but not the scalp – are also recommended. If you wish to dye your hair, use colors as close to your natural shade as possible and go darker rather than lighter. Natural hair color is always best though says Dr. Barnett. Frizzy ends, hair breakage and the smell of burned hair signals damage from too much heat. Dr. Barnett explains the condition is known as "bubble hair".

“Think of hair like a piece of steak – it starts out nice and soft and flexible. But when you cook it, the steak changes texture and becomes hard. Similarly, hair transforms when exposed to heat over time, resulting in brittle hair that breaks easily. Protecting hair from too much heat is essential to maintaining healthy hair.”

The only way to repair heat damaged hair is to get it cut and let it regrow, but moisturizers can help some. To prevent more damage,, let hair air dry. whenever possible. Use low heat settings at first when using a blow dryer then gradually increase the heat. Buy hair dryers with variable temperature settings. To avoid damage from a straightening iron, use a moist towel between the iron and the hair.

Barnett warns salon straightening with keratin is even more damaging because of strong chemicals. Women considering should not do s if the hair is tightly kinked. Avoid frequent treatments and use plenty of conditioner. When it comes to styling, Barnett says, “It is best to choose a hairstyle closest to your hair’s natural structure and color as possible, which will minimize hair damage. Be sure to consult your dermatologist for any questions about styling products, concerns about the appearance of your hair, or unexplained hair loss.”

Tips for maintaining healthy hair include wearing a hat to avoid sun damage, choosing shampoo and conditioner for your hair type and applying conditioner on the hair ends rather than the scalp. Make sure to wash the scalp and wash more often if hair is oily. To keep hair looking healthy, avoid processing, straightening and dyeing and be generous with the conditioner to minimize the effects of damaged and brittle hair.
