This week’s revelation: Jada Pinkett Smith is losing her hair.
“A lot of people have been asking why I’ve been wearing turbans,” she said on the latest episode of Red Table Talk. “Well, I haven’t talked about it. It’s not easy to talk about, but I am going to talk about it.”
For the first time, she opened up about her “issues with hair loss,” explaining, “It 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?’
Jada added, “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.”
Doctors aren’t sure why she’s losing her hair, but her friends believe it’s stress-related.
