Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals Her Battle With Hair Loss

Jada Pinkett Smith just revealed she’s been struggling with hair loss.

The 46-year-old actress opened up about her battle on the latest episode of her Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk.

“A lot of people have been asking why I’ve been wearing turbans. Well, I haven’t talked about it. It’s not easy to talk about, but I am going to talk about it,” Jada began

She continued to discuss her “issues with hair loss” that 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, ‘Oh my god, am I going bald?’ It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking in fear. That’s why I cut my hair, and why I continue to cut it,” Jada said.

Despite her quest to find out the cause of her hair loss, she still doesn’t know.

“I’ve gotten every kind of test there is to have. They don’t know why,” Jada explained.

Jada concluded, “Even in my fear…I really had to put it into a spiritual perspective, like the higher power takes so much from people. People are out here with cancer. People have sick children. I watch the higher power take things every day…When I looked at it from the perspective it really did settle me.”
