For our Zoom conversation, she’s wearing a long, honey brown wig (laid to perfection, may I add) but as she explains to Unbothered, underneath the wig her hair is very short, still healing from her recent hair transplant to help restore her hairline and thinning “edges” after years of dealing with traction alopecia. And so far, so good.
"I’ve accepted that I have alopecia... if the transplant doesn't work that's fine too"
“I see women every day, and I didn’t realise how much we don’t accept our hair, the texture, density, the length. I already know there’s a limit to what my hair can do, and I’m fine with that, and if I want to be a babes with extra long hair — there’s wigs for that! Wherever my journey grows, that’s where I’m going to glow.”
