A woman who lost her hair to cancer has revealed she was only 22 when she first took part in the hit Australian television show The X Factor.
Melissa Lohani, who is now 34, says she went through the process of losing her hair for the show.
“I was 23 when I started, and it was really, really difficult to lose my hair,” Ms Lohan said.
She said the process involved a lot of trying on various hairstyles, getting the right shade of hair colour and having to get a full beard.
Ms Lohanian said she did not lose the same amount of hair on The X-Factor as on other shows, because she only did two seasons.
Her hair colour change was a long-time goal for her.
In 2009, Ms LOHANI said she went to the doctor after noticing her hair was growing thicker.
“[The doctor] told me, ‘Oh my god, I’ve lost my hair, I don’t know what to do’,” Ms Lofani said.
“And I said, ‘I don’t care, I’ll lose my whole head.'”
Ms Lohlani said she was given a wig, two thinning hairs, a pair of surgical scissors and some styling tips to make her look more natural.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) said the ABC could not comment on a subject which was “private and confidential”.
