Jada Pinkett-Smith Looks Cheery As She Jokes About Her Struggles With Alopecia: ‘At This Point I Can Only Laugh’
Jada Pinkett-Smith has always been outspoken about her hair loss over the year, but she does not let her complexes get to her. In a recent Instagram post, the 50-year-old actress, activist, and Red Table Talk host, talked about her suffering from alopecia.

She elaborated about her hair loss and other struggles that come with it. She pointed viewers towards a particular linear patch on her scalp while saying, "at this point I can only laugh" right at the opening of the video. 

"Y'all know I've been struggling with alopecia and just all of a sudden one day, look at this line right here. Look at that." With a laugh, Pinkett Smith continued: "So it just showed up like that and this is going to be a little bit more difficult for me to hide. So I thought I'd just share it so y'all are not asking any questions." 


Jada wasn’t particularly unhappy in the video. On the contrary, she looks rather cheery talking about her alopecia in a comic tone and saying that the patch of line on her head just decided to show up. Smith seems to be taking her condition pretty well.

Back in 2018, Smith publicly announced that she is has alopecia and she told fans about how much she wanted to rock a shaved head. She said, "for me, it was a mixture of a spiritual calling and also going. At some point, your hairline is going to be back here... so we might as well just do it now."

Earlier in 2021, she also talked about shaving her head on one of her Facebook Watch Episodes.
