UPDATE (December 29, 2021): Jada Pinkett Smith has been publicly unraveling the many layers behind her hair-loss story for three years now. In an act of self-acceptance, the Red Table Talk host opted to shave all her hair off with the help of her daughter, Willow, this past July. Now, five months later, Pinkett Smith has taken to Instagram to share another part of her hair loss journey: the appearance of a hairless line on her closely-shaven scalp. 
In a 40-second video posted to her Instagram grid on December 28, Pinkett-Smith starts off by saying, "Now at this point, I can only laugh… y'all know I've been struggling with alopecia." She laughs, then muses, "Just all of a sudden, one day…" Then, she points to a hairless line on her scalp. "So, it just showed up like that. Now, 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 not asking any questions," Pinkett Smith explained.
She says she plans to decorate the line with some rhinestones. "Might as well make me a little crown," Pinkett Smith proposed. "That's what mama's gonna do."
She takes the rest of her story to her post's caption, affirming that the new line and her condition have no chance at bringing her down. "Mama’s gonna have to take it down to the scalp so nobody thinks she got brain surgery or something," she writes. "Me and this alopecia are going to be friends … period!"

Pinkett Smith's post about the latest chapter of her hair-loss experience serves as a friendly reminder that we need to push to have more open conversations about hair loss. In 2018, 147 million people the world over had alopecia. If hair-loss conversations are normalized, as Pinkett Smith is helping to do, then maybe the topic wouldn't feel so scary or taboo after all.

Since 2018, Jada Pinkett Smith has been vocal about her hair loss journey. On May 21, the Red Table Talk host tearfully shared her story, stating, "I've been getting a lot of questions about why I was wearing this turban. Well, I've been having issues with hair loss." Now, three years later, she's letting it all go — literally — because she's completely shaved off her hair. 
Daughter and musician Willow was the first to show off her mother's bald head, sharing a gorgeous selfie of the duo on July 12. Just a few hours later, the newly initiated baldheaded baddie reposted the selfie on her Instagram with the caption, "Willow made me do it because it was time to let go BUT … my 50’s are bout to be Divinely lit with this shed."

The mother-daughter duo looks so absolutely radiant that you may not even notice the lack of hair on Pinkett-Smith's head. Throughout the years, the '90s icon has given us some hair looks including some amazing short cuts — I mean, let's be honest, she can rock the hell out of a pixie. But being completely bald is a different ballpark, and she's low-key convincing us that maybe we all need to pull out the razors (or schedule an appointment with an experienced hairstylist) and give the short haircut a try.
While she looks absolutely stunning, we are even happier to see her journey with hair loss has evolved to one of love and acceptance. Despite the fact that hair loss is normal for many, moments like these where celebrities share their real experiences can feel very affirming for folks who may not feel as comfortable. 
There's no one way that hair loss looks, nor is there one "right" method to living with it, but Pinkett Smith shows us that it's okay to just let all your hair go sometimes.
