She may have an enviable life, but she's harbouring 
a secret fear...

Victoria Beckham‘s luscious locks were her crowning glory throughout her pregnancy, whether scraped back into a slick ponytail for the Royal Wedding or in a loose chignon for a transatlantic flight.

So it’s no surprise that Posh is desperate not to fall victim to the post-pregnancy hair loss that plagues many new mums.

The 37-year-old is said to be so worried she’ll lose the thick, luxurious hair that became her trademark during her pregnancy, she’s trying out different remedies, from hair loss supplements to herbal milkshakes, to try to maintain her mane.

Increased levels of oestrogen result in thicker hair during pregnancy but as those levels return to normal, women go back to the locks – lustrous or otherwise – they had before falling pregnant.

Victoria’s always felt her hair is her biggest problem,’ an insider tells Now.

She used extensions for years, which left her with some patchy bald spots.

‘When she fell pregnant her hair got shinier, thicker and stronger than it had been in years.

‘She loved it and experimented with lots of different looks.

‘But it’s starting to fall out and she’s heartbroken.’
