And Trinny Woodall was seen hitting herself in her own head using sticks as she attempted an alternative method in halting her hair loss.

After admitting to seeking medical advice and trying pills, Trinny has been desperate to maintain her luscious locks and has tried her hand at an altogether different approach.

Tapping is said to encourage oxygenation, detoxify and encourage energy flow. 

While in Chinese medicine, tapping the abdomen supports the vital organs, which control the overall health of the body. 

And the stylist was seen being shown by Katie how to hit herself in the abdomen, groin and chest with two bamboo sticks before progressing onto her head and repeatedly hitting herself on the scalp with them.

Katie is the founder of the Hayo’u method which distils the remarkable holistic philosophy of Chinese medicine into easy but pleasurable techniques which users can implement in short rituals. 

Trinny said of the method: ‘In my quest to improve hair loss I called Katie Brindle and she has come into the garden to text me some tapping.

‘So we’re going to move our circulation with tapping and as Katie says two is better than one. Feeling the oomph with two tappers and detoxification and stimulating energy flow.’

The presenter has previously spoke about hair loss and in 2018 she shared an Instagram video where she spoke about her locks.

Trinny admitted that she used to have ‘over processed, broken off and thin hair’ but after overhauling her regime her locks were ‘twice as thick’. 

She said: ‘Many of you ask about the thickness of my hair, one day it was very thin, lank and over processed due to too many products on it with heat.’

Trinny then showed off her luscious brunette locks and added: ‘Today I feel like a Dulux dog in a sauna as there’s so much of it!’

The presenter listed the supplements she had been taking, encouraging her fans to seek medical advice before consuming if taking medicine.

Trinny revealed she was having biotin, Superior Hair and IoniCell capsules and that they were her ‘three favourite supplements’.

Research shows that hair loss effects 50 per cent of women at some point in their lives. 

It can be caused by a variety of factors including stress, a shift of hormones during menopause, low iron or a vitamin D deficiency.

In July,  Dr. Sandra Lee, best known as Dr. Pimple Popper, explained that people who are shedding a seemingly alarming amount of hair are likely experiencing pandemic-induced telogen effluvium, a form of temporary hair loss that occurs after stress.

‘Right now, we’re seeing a lot of people in our offices complaining about hair loss,’ she said in a TikTok video. 

‘People are noticing their hair is falling out. They are freaking out. That’s normal to freak out, but let me tell you why it’s happening and why your hair is going to grow back.’ 

The California-based physician explained that the hair growth cycle has three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen.

The anagen phase is the growth phase, which lasts about three to five years. It is followed by the catagen phase, a short transitional phase that signals the end of active growth and lasts a few weeks.

In the final phase, the telogen phase, strands are released and fall out. This ‘death’ phase, as Dr. Pimple Popper calls it, lasts three to six months.

‘People can have a condition — it’s really common — called telogen effluvium,’ she said. 

‘If you notice that your hair is falling out now, it could be from a stressful event you experienced three to six months ago like childbirth, like COVID, like stressful events related to COVID. We are seeing a lot of this now.’

In January, Trinny revealed she was recovering from COVID-19 after spending Christmas looking after loved ones who had the virus.

The presenter revealed she’d had a difficult start to 2021 after spending several days confined to her bed ‘feeling horrible.’

Trinny went onto share with fans some of the supplements she’d been taking to recover from the virus, as she joked it ‘wasn’t the way’ she hoped to kick off the New Year.  

Trinny took to Facebook Live to reveal she’d been absent from social media while she recovered from the virus, explaining: ‘I’m just getting over a little bit of corona and I just haven’t been up for chatting. 

‘For those of you watching from abroad we’ve just had news of full lockdown last night, so it’s been a few days of it. It made me think actually I want to start my January 1st in a couple of weeks that’s where I’m at now.’

Explaining the main symptoms she’d been suffering, Trinny revealed she likely contracting COVID-19 from her loved ones who she’d been looking after, despite taking precautions and using PPE.  

She continued: ‘I did feel really horrible until the middle of last night, probably until 5am this morning, and then I went back to sleep had a few days of feeling horrible because Christmas I’d been looking after people around me who had corona, and I thought I was invincible. 

‘I was really careful with them in the household, wearing gloves and protective clothing and then in the end I was just wearing the mask and stuff and then I got it too.’

The main symptoms for COVID-19 are listed as a continuous cough, a fever and a loss of taste and smell, with those who test positive advised for self-isolate for 10 days.
