Jourdan Dunn is losing her hair.

The 24-year-old model has taken to wearing wigs to give her natural locks a break from styling because her tresses were becoming so damaged, they started falling out at the front.

She said: "My hairstylist Renda Attia is really important.

"My hair has been so damaged with heat and styling because most hairdressers still don't know what to do with Afro hair. So last year Renda said to me, 'You need to give your hair a break and start wearing wigs.'

"I mean, I had no hair around my hairline - it was like baby hair, it was so damaged.

"So I've been wearing wigs and having them changed every month, having lots of conditioning treatments and, finally, my hair is growing back."

Despite her slender figure, Jourdan insists she hardly ever exercises, unless she has a big show coming up.

She told HELLO! magazine: "Here's the thing - I don't really do anything. But for the last Victoria's Secret show I did Barrecorre, because, trust me, those Angels work hard for their bodies.

"Barrecore is really hard core - you do squats on your tippy toes until your legs shake and burn.

"But it really works, so after the fashion weeks are finished I'm going to get back into it again. It's an intense mix of ballet, Pilates, yoga and cardio."
