KATIE Price opened up about how 'traumatic' it was to lose her hair after pregnancy.
The mother-of-five revealed she "started balding" after having her brood of kids and also from years of harsh treatments.
But even though she felt really upset when she first started losing her hair, Katie has learnt to embrace wearing wigs and the choice of styles they afford her.
"I love to change my hair every day. One day I'm blonde, the next brunette.
"But many people might not realise this isn't my real hair," she told host Steph McGovern on her C4 show, Steph's Packed Lunch.
"Me and wigs have a relationship. I absolutely love them. These days it doesn't matter if you wear a wig or not, who cares? You can have so much fun with wigs."
Katie appeared on the show on Wednesday to help break down the stigma of wearing wigs and revealed why she had to start wearing them in the first place.
She said: "Wearing wigs isn't just a fashion choice. Like millions of women I've experienced hair loss.
"When I started modelling I had really long hair and started colouring it.
"I had kids and started balding, had extensions, but do you know what, I have to give my hair a rest."
Katie added: "Hair is very important, it's your identity. For me it is a confidence thing.
"Losing your hair can be traumatic, whatever the reason. It could be genetic, stress related or the side effects of cancer treatments like chemotherapy.
"I'm going to be wearing wigs all the time and showing them off."
Hair loss was a small price to pay for Katie who today said she was "thrilled" to have been nominated for a National Television Award with her son Harvey for their BBC documentary.
In the much lauded doc, Katie gave fans an insight into life caring for Harvey, 18, who is partially blind and has Prader-Willi syndrome and autism.
Katie Price: Harvey and Me was praised by fans as they watched Harvey transition to adulthood and gain more independence.
It comes hot on the heels of Katie celebrating Harvey being nominated for Celebrity of the Year for his incredible charity work.
She recently shared the news that Harvey has been shortlisted for the gong at the National Diversity Awards.
Harvey is an ambassador for the charity Anna Kennedy Online and has helped to shed light on his condition.
The teenager enchanted the nation when he appeared alongside his famous mum in their documentary.
Viewers of the show loved the moment when the teen visited Waterloo station in London and recited train announcements just like a professional.
Since the documentary, Network Rail has asked if Harvey will do announcements for them.
Many heaped praise on the devoted mum-of-five for working so hard to keep Harvey happy.
The star gushed over her "unbreakable bond" with her eldest child, saying: "Together we have built our private world, a bond between mother and son which goes deeper than most – we are unbreakable."
Harvey, whose dad is former footballer Dwight Yorke, is Katie's eldest child.
She also shares Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with ex-husband Peter Andre and Jett and Bunny with Kieran Hayler.
