Not many women are comfortable admitting they struggle with hair loss. Perhaps this makes Jada Pinkett Smith’s recent acknowledgment that she suffers from alopecia so powerful.
Jada Pinkett Smith is an actress and celebrity. Her career began in the 1990s with guest appearances on the popular sitcom “In Living Color.” Her most recent work includes her role on the TV series “Gotham.” On her new Facebook show, Red Table Talk, Jada opened up about her suffering from alopecia. She shared her emotional challenge with alopecia to help others struggling with hair loss.
What Is Alopecia?
In alopecia, your immune system attacks your hair follicles. The amount of hair you lose varies from person to person, with some people suffering only minor hair loss and others experiencing complete baldness on the head. This condition can affect both men and women.
What Causes It?
Her doctors haven’t pinpointed the cause of her hair loss, but they suspect stress. Stress often contributes to hair loss, especially when emotional and physical stress combine. Everyday stressors like pregnancy, eating disorders, drastic dieting, divorce, and loss can cause hair loss. Oral contraceptives, blood thinners, poor nutrition, and genetics can also cause hair loss.
The good news is that people like Jada Pinkett Smith are starting the conversation about hair loss in ways that can help others who are afflicted feel empowered.
