Hair loss: Jada Pinkett Smith reveals alopecia battle.
Jada Pinkett Smith has opened up on her struggle with hair loss in the latest episode of her FB chat show, Red Table Talk.
“I’ve been getting a lot of questions about why I’ve been wearing this turban,” said the US actress, 46.
“Well, I’ve been having issues with hair loss. And it was terrifying when it first started.”
Doctors haven’t identified a cause but Smith thinks it may be stress-related.
The Girls Trip star says she first suspected she had the hair loss disease after “handfuls of hair” came loose in the shower.
“I was just like ‘Oh my god am I going bald?’ It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking with fear,” she explained. “That’s why I cut my hair and continue to cut it.”
