When fans noticed sometime last year that the “Bad Moms” star was consistently wearing turbans, she confessed that she’d been losing her hair, and doctors were unable to find a cause for the loss.

The candid and emotional explanation triggered an outpour of support for Pinkett-Smith, and not too long after, she shared a happy update.

'The Higher Power takes so much from people. People are out here who have cancer. People have sick children.'

“I just want to say a thank you to everyone for all the outreach,” began the actress in an Instagram video where she showed off her short hair.

She continued:

“All the doctors and all the holistic practitioners, who have been reaching out to me for this head of mine, I appreciate it so much and I’m taking into a lot of consideration all the recommendations that are coming my way. I’m getting my little steroid injections, and they seem to be helping, but not curing, but they seem to be helping, but I’m open to other ideas.”

Pinkett-Smith initially opened up about the first time she noticed the hair loss in an emotional May 21 episode of her Facebook Watch series, “Red Table Talk.”

She told her co-hosts, mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and daughter Willow Smith that she was in the shower when she noticed her hair had come off in handfuls.

“I was just like, ‘Oh, my God, am I going bald?’” recalled the then 47-year-old. “It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking with fear.”

Pinkett-Smith said she had to change her perspective toward the situation after realizing how terrified she was of losing her hair.

“In the moment of just going, ‘Oh my God, like, why are you so terrified that you might lose your hair?’ I really had to put it in a spiritual perspective of like, the Higher Power takes so much from people. People are out here who have cancer. People have sick children.”

“I watch the Higher Power take things every day, and by golly, if the Higher Power wants to take your hair? That’s it? ‘God, you want my hair?’” she added. “When I looked at it from that perspective, it really did settle me.”
