Ashleigh Alqotaibi, 22, from Beighton, Sheffield, claims that she was under such heavy stress in a ‘toxic’ relationship that she started going bald.
According to AsianTown , the supermarket assistant started losing her hair in November 2014 and medics diagnosed her with alopecia, warning it was likely to have been brought on by stress.
Her hair fell out in chunks, and by February 2015 she had 95 per cent baldness.
Ashleigh, who was in a relationship at the time, was left ‘devastated’ and admits she was suicidal.
Some time later she met her fiancé John Robinson, 26, and her hair started to grow back just four months later. Now she has a head full of hair and a happy relationship.
She said:The Sun reports that realising her ‘unhappy’ relationship then-boyfriend was the source of her stress, she dumped him in a bid to improve her well-being.
“With every strand of hair that fell out, a piece of my confidence went with it.
“Looking back, I was unhappy in my relationship, but it took a while to link the silly arguments I was having with my boyfriend with the clumps of my hair falling out every day.”
Some time later she met her fiancé John Robinson, 26, and incredbly, her hair started to grow back just four months later.
