Jada Pinkett Smith Cancer: During the 94th Academy Awards ceremony on March 27, after Chris Rock made a jest about Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s buzz cut, the actor slapped Rock across the face. Jada Pinkett Smith, an actress who married Will Smith in 1997, has been experiencing the alopecia-related hair loss symptoms.

Jada revealed that she had been diagnosed in 2018. During the Academy Awards, Rock remarked on Jada’s newly shaved head and expressed his desire that she would reprise her role as GI Jane in the sequel. Will Smith disapproved of the jest and approached the stage to slap the comedian.

Jada Pinkett Smith Cancer

Pinkett Smith discussed her alopecia prognosis on Red Table Talk for the first time in 2018. The actress discussed the “terrifying” experience of losing “handfuls of hair” in the shower and how it influenced her decision to cut off her hair.

She described the treatments she was undergoing in detail, including the steroid treatment she claimed was improving but not curing her bald patches. Pinkett Smith has worn short hairstyles, hair turbans, and close trimming for red carpet appearances in recent years. She discussed her decision to shave her cranium as hair loss worsened.

In December, when she announced her pregnancy on Instagram, she said, “This is going to be a little more difficult to hide, so I figured I’d just let you all know so you’re not asking questions.” She appended a photograph of herself beaming while sporting her new short haircut.

Alopecia Areata Types

Certainly, the following are some key factors regarding the various types of alopecia areata:

Total Alopecia Areata:

  • Causes complete hair loss.
  • The loss of hair affects the entire scalp, leaving no residual hair.
  • In some instances, eyebrows, eyelashes, and body hair may also be affected.

Alopecia Areata Universalis:

  • Not only causes hair loss on the scalp, but also on other parts of the body.
  • Loss of all hair, including eyelashes, eyebrows, and body hair.
  • Affects all regions containing hair follicles.

Areata Alopecia Diffuse:

  • Causes a rapid loss of hair without the development of bald regions.
  • The loss of hair is uniform throughout the cranium.
  • There may be visible signs of thinning hair, but no bald patches.

Ophiasis Areata Alopecia:

  • Characterised by circular hair reduction.
  • It occurs most frequently on the sides and back of the cranium.
  • On the cranium, hair loss patterns may resemble a wavelike or serpentine pattern.

These variants of alopecia areata are caused by an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system assaults hair follicles in error, resulting in hair loss. The specific presentation and severity of hair loss can vary depending on the form of alopecia areata an individual has.

The band-shaped hair loss of Pinkett Smith began in December of last year. After posting a video of herself going fully bald on Instagram, the actress explained, “Mama’s gonna have to take it down to the scalp so nobody thinks she got brain surgery or something.” I’ve decided to accept my alopecia and work with it rather than against it.

In the video, the actress discussed her experience with alopecia and the unforeseen obstacles her condition may present. She stated that at this juncture she could only chuckle.

Everyone is aware of how difficult it is for me to cope with alopecia, and then one day this line appeared. Confirm for yourself. The issue is that it simply appeared that way, making it more difficult for me to conceal. In the video, Jada says, “I figured I’d just post this so none of you have any questions.”

What causes Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia areata affects males and females with equal incidence. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), onset can occur at any age; however, the majority of individuals who develop the disorder do so before the age of 30.

A 2018 study conducted in the United States revealed that Black and Hispanic women are more likely than other ethnic groups to develop alopecia.

Existing medical conditions such as vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, asthma, or thyroid disease increase the risk of developing alopecia. A 2019 study revealed that vitamin D deficiency may have an effect, but further research is required.

However, a late-stage study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on March 26, 2022 suggests that the rheumatoid arthritis drug baricitinib may induce significant hair regrowth in alopecia areata patients.

According to specialists, Alopecia areata is incurable but can be managed with pharmacological and natural therapies. Medical treatment options include topical medications, injections, oral medications, and light therapy.

The senior dermatological specialist of Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, Dr Vijay Singhal, told Indian Express that zinc and biotin, aloe vera and topical lubricants, and onion juice are frequently prescribed for application to the scalp.

Tea tree, rosemary, lavender, peppermint, coconut, castor, olive, and jojoba are additional useful oils. According to Dr. Singhal, patients should consume a low-inflammatory diet abundant in meat and vegetables, as well as ginseng, green tea, and Chinese hibiscus.
