Earlier this summer, Selma Blair, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last year, shaved some of her head with the help of her adorable seven-year-old son, Arthur. Now, after an intense round of treatment for the rare condition, Blair has gone totally bald — and she’s embracing every minute of it.
The 47-year-old actor took to Instagram earlier this week to share the news in an emotional post about her journey. The post showcases a newly hairless Blair in the hospital, looking happy because she can finally go home. “I will sleep near my son and thank the stars every waking minute that he IS. I am. You are. This is what we have,” reads a section of the caption.
Then, in a follow-up post from yesterday, Blair revealed that she’s had a scab on her head for two months but really didn’t notice it until now. “It stands out to me as much as my newly bald head. I don’t mind it. I don’t mind the hair loss either. But if my eyebrows totally fall out, I am gonna be singing a different tune,” reads her candid caption.
Needless to say, it’s extremely heartwarming to see Blair be so accepting of her situation. Fans flooded the comment section with supportive messages like “You are beautiful in every way,” “You are an effortless beauty! Nothing can change that! ❤️” and “Still more beautiful than any of us. And the scab? Just another badge of honor 🧡.”
Cheers to Blair for showing so much strength and clearly making the best of the cards she was dealt. Hair or no hair, she’s beautiful inside and out.
