Bleaching forced Zayn Malik to go bald

Zayn Malik had no choice but to go bald because constant bleaching wrecked his hair.

The former One Direction star stunned fans as he appeared hairless in a photo posted on his mom Trisha's Instagram account earlier this week (beg04Sep17). In the snap, Trisha is seen kissing Zayn's bald head, while his girlfriend Gigi Hadid smiles as he pouts for the camera.

And now the Pillowtalk singer reveals he had to adopt a drastic new look, telling the BBC, "I just shaved my head because I'd bleached it too many times and it was a bit destroyed. The bleach affects your hair doesn't it, so you've got to shave it off."

But he won't be bald for long, explaining he has already started growing his hair back.

"It grows back straight away anyways, so I've got hair now anyway," he explains. "It only took two days!"

Zayn has changed his look many times, dyeing his hair green, pink and rainbow colored in the past, and admitting he went wild with hair products after he quit One Direction in 2015.

"There were certain restrictions in terms of the way that we could come outside of that young teen boy look... I wanted to dye my hair when I was in the band, but I wasn't allowed to," he recently told Complex magazine about the styling rules in the group, revealing he rebelled by growing a beard.

"I wasn't allowed to keep it," he smirked. "Eventually, when I got older, I rebelled against it, and decided to keep it anyway. That was just because I looked older than the rest of them. That's one of the things that is now quite cool. I get to keep my beard."
