Jada Pinkett Smith recently took to social media to share some selfies. The two selfies document the actress and talk show hostâ€™s hair growth amid her alopecia journey. She previously revealed that she was diagnosed with the condition in 2018, and has struggled with it ever since. It appears as though sheâ€™s done well at embracing it, however, stunning in her latest photos.
â€œThis here hair is actâ€™n like itâ€™s tryâ€™n a make a come back [sic]. Still have some trouble spots but â€” weâ€™ll see,â€ she wrote on her Instagram earlier this week. â€œSlide 1: Past. Slide 2: Present.â€ The first photo she shared features her sporting a close-shaven look. In the next slide, her hair is bleached, and appears a bit longer. As expected, fans rushed to her comments section to share their thoughts. One Instagram user notes that she looks â€œRadiantly beautiful through and through.â€
Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals Her Hair Is Trying To Make A â€œComebackâ€
In a previous episode of her show, Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith detailed the frightening experience of losing her hair. â€œIt was terrifying when it first started. I was in the shower one day and had just handfuls of hair in my hands and I was just like, â€˜Oh my God, am I going bald?â€™â€ She continued, â€œIt was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking in fear.â€
Famously, Jada Pinkett Smithâ€™s short hair also acted as the bud of one of Chris Rockâ€™s jokes at the 2022 Oscars. He joked that the beauty would play â€œG.I. Jane,â€ leading to â€œthe slap heard round the world.â€ Her husband, Will Smith, made his way to the stage and hit Rock in the face before returning to his seat. â€œKeep my wifeâ€™s name out of your f*cking mouth,â€ he repeatedly told Rock. For obvious reasons, the situation sparked a lot of controversy, but it also fortunately worked to shed light on alopecia.
