Cruel Intentions star Selma Blair’s hair loss came as a shock when she posted the image to nearly 2M followers as she shares details of her journey through multiple sclerosis.
Blair Receives Tragic Diagnosis
Selma Blair was at the peak of her powers as an actress when she received some devastating news. It came in the shape of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Diagnosed with this cruel degenerative disease less than a year ago the effects of her illness are already visible. Part of the cruelty in a diagnosis of MS is the long list of potential symptoms, along with a lack of clarity on exactly what to expect. What is certain is that it will involve significant life-changing deterioration. It can affect the brain and spinal cord, leading to issues with vision, coordination, and balance. The degree and severity of symptoms vary greatly and as of today, there is no cure.
Selma Posts Amazing Hair Loss Picture
Selma Blair has been seen, recently, in public walking with the aid of a cane, and on another occasion using a walking chair. The picture she has posted sees her sitting cross-legged beside a swimming pool in a red bikini. What makes it amazing is that she wears no makeup and she reveals for the first time her recently shaved head. Hair loss has been among the symptoms, the result of her treatment affecting her immune system. There can be no doubt she remains, at nearly 50, a remarkably beautiful woman. One who is showing enormous grace while sharing her story with 1.8M Instagram followers.
That picture is the latest in a long line of images and posts and she plots her path through life since the diagnosis. In an interview with People magazine a few months ago she spoke about spasmodic symptoms that see her lose control over her face and voice. As she puts it ‘I am very happy to be able to put out what being in the middle of an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis is like’.
