In the TikTok video, Jada said, “Being a Black woman and dealing with hair in Hollywood, in the era I came up in, having your hair look as European as possible was always the thing, and that was really challenging, you know because I liked my hair out wild and curly.”

“But nobody wanted that, so I always had to do my hair in ways that didn’t feel natural to me because I’m trying to play the game,” the actress continued. “So if I’m doing a cover, everybody’s [like], ‘No, we want your hair straight and flowy,’ when it’s like, ‘All right, cool, but that’s not really what my hair likes to do.” 

Jada finished with “So I had to learn to get the courage to go, ‘Nah, I’m not doing that.’ This is why I feel the freedom today – I don’t give two craps what people think of this bald head of mine. Because guess what? I love it.”

In 2018 Jada has opened up about her hair loss problem during an episode of her show Red Table Talk.

She explained, “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 when I was literally shaking in fear. That’s why I cut my hair, and why I continue to cut it.”

“Now at this point, I can only laugh,” she said in an Instagram video in December 2021 as she ran her finger across a bald line patch on her scalp. “Y’all know I’ve been struggling with alopecia and just all of a sudden one day, look at this line right here. Look at that.”
