Keira Knightley Confesses She’s Been Wearing Wigs for Five Years

'Begin Again' Director Apologizes for Dissing Keira Knightley
"From a director who feels like a complete idiot..."

Like most actresses in Hollywood, Keira Knightley is constantly changing her look.

And like most actresses Knightley relies a lot on wigs and extensions to get into character for her various roles, but it turns out the actress actually relies on wigs in her everyday life too. Knightley recently confessed that almost 20 years in the business left her hair so damaged, it began falling out!

“I have dyed my hair virtually every color imaginable for different films. It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head!” Knightley confessed Instyle UK. “So for the past five years I’ve used wigs, which is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to my hair.”

Now that Knightley’s locks are on the road to recovery, she’s facing a whole new hair problem. “I have naturally crazy, curly hair, and since I’ve had the baby it’s become 10 times thicker. So now I’ve been finding quite a lot of dreadlocks,” she joked. Knightley’s solution? Tangle Teezer. “It’s the only thing that works for detangling my dreadlocks. It gets rid of the kinks without snagging my hair out,” she shared as a recommendation to other moms with the same issue.
