Lady Gaga's bleaching habit 'burns' her scalp

Pop superstar Lady Gaga suffers for her style as she experiences a "burning" sensation on her scalp every time she bleaches her hair.

The Poker Face hitmaker's signature blonde hue takes a lot of maintenance, and Gaga shared her pain with fans during a colouring session on Tuesday (10Jan12).

In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Bleaching my hair! Scalp burning like a champ. A real blonde loves a peroxide shot.

"Note to bleached blondes who are toning: do not fear the sting of toner! Wait five minutes and it's just so painful your scalp will numb."
