American actress, screenwriter, producer, talk show host and businesswoman Jada Smith has recently decided to go bald. Jada, who took to Instagram for her reveal, stated that her move to go bald is a decision she made, with daughter Willow being the Inspiration behind it. 

"Willow made me do it because it was time to let go," read Jada Pinkett Smith's post on Instagram. The Red Table Talk show host has never shied off from revealing that she suffers from hair loss, and maybe this was her way of letting it be. On her previous encounters with hair loss, Jada narrated that she was terrified the first time she discovered that she was slowly losing her hair.

"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? 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", she once stated on the show.

"My hair has been a big part of me. Taking care of my hair has been a beautiful ritual, and having the choice to have hair or not. And then one day to be like, Oh my god, I might not have that choice anymore".
