Thanks to her direct honesty, we already believed that Jada Pinkett Smith was one of the bravest women in Black Hollywood, but since returning to the Red Table with her mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, and daughter Willow Smith, our feelings have been confirmed. 

ICYMI: She openly spoke with her hubby's ex-wife and admitted that she wished she would have waited until her husband, Will Smith, was divorced before getting into a relationship.

How many women are that bold? We'll wait. 

As you can see, Mrs. Smith is always opening up about sensitive topics in her personal life, and most recently the 46-year-old actor just revealed on a new episode of “Red Talk Table” that she is suffering from hair loss due to alopecia.

Below is the latest episode where the generations of women confess body insecurities. Keep scrolling to learn more about how she's dealing with hair loss.

Known for wearing her thick and beautiful hair in its natural state, Jada admits her hair was a big part of her identity and not to have a “choice” was scary.

As of recent, you may have noticed that Jada has been spotted rocking fashion-forward turbans, and she confessed, yes, it was due to the loss of hair. 

She then went on to describe the moment that she first realized she was losing her hair as a “terrifying” moment as “handfuls of hair” came out in the shower.

“It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking with fear,” she shared with her mother and daughter. “That’s why I cut my hair and continued to cut it.”

Jada confessed that unfortunately doctors and specialists have not been able to find the cause of her alopecia. It may be stress.

Even with the worries that come with losing her hair, she still remains positive.  

“When my hair is wrapped, I feel like a queen,” she shared with her family as she showed off different ways she styles her head wraps. 

As usual, she stayed giving us #BlackGirlMagic even when she felt dim.

We honestly wish her the best on her journey. In our eyes, she still slays!
