Last year, Pinkett Smith revealed that she had shaved her head due to alopecia. “Now at this point, all I can do is laugh,” the actor wrote on Instagram. You’re all aware that I’ve been battling alopecia. All of a sudden, one day…it just appeared like that. This will be a little more difficult for me to conceal now. So I figured I’d just share it so no one asks any questions… Mama’s going to have to take it all the way down to her scalp so no one thinks she’s had brain surgery. “I’m going to be friends with this alopecia for the rest of my life!”
