People have been asking about why I wear turbans. Well, I haven’t talked about it. It’s not easy to talk about, but I am going to talk about it.”

While Pinkett Smith’s mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, talked about the pressure on women to stay young, and her daughter, Willow Smith, spoke about sometimes feeling self-conscious because she’s skinny, Pinkett Smith called losing her hair “terrifying.”

In the beginning, Pinkett Smith said was losing handfuls of hair in the shower and she wondered if she was going bald.

It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking with fear. That’s why I cut my hair and continued to cut it.”

“I’ve gotten every kind test there is to have,” Pinkett Smith said, yet doctors still don’t know why she suffers from hair loss.

“People are out here with cancer, with sick children. I watch the higher power take so much from people… and, by golly, if the higher power wants to take your hair, that’s it?” she said. “When I looked at it from that perspective it really did settle me.”
