Ranvir Singh reveals ‘discomfort’ with living with alopecia

TV presenter Ranvir Singh has spoken about her experience with alopecia.

Ingh, 44, opened up about her personal experience with the autoimmune disease that causes hair loss while reflecting on Will Smith’s outburst at the Oscars after mentioning his wife’s hair.

Will Smith beat Chris Rock on stage just before receiving the Best Actor award for his role in King Richard (Doug Peters/PA).

Pinkett Smith, 50, has previously spoken out about suffering from alopecia.

Singh, who was filling in as presenter for ITV’s Lorraine, discussed the condition with Dr. Amir Khan who said eight million women in the UK suffer from hair loss.

she said to me [being] one of them – I can show it to you. We went to Thorpe Park on Mother’s Day and I hate the photos because your hair is backwards.

“I’ve always had bangs, I’ve found ways to cover them up, I use colored sprays and stuff. I have a patch in the middle, I have a patch in the back.”

To illustrate, Singh lifted a section of her hair back to reveal a bald spot.

She added: “It started when my dad had a heart attack and when he died when I was eight or nine years old and it’s never come back, so I kind of understand the real discomfort you’re living with.

“If anything, it’s certainly gotten us talking about what it is, which at the expense of Jada, Will and Chris, somehow at least we’re talking about it and women know they’re not alone.”

In an episode of Pinkett Smith’s Facebook show Red Table Talk that aired in 2018, the actress said she had “hair loss issues.”

Pinkett Smith described suffering from alopecia as “terrifying.”

She said, “It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking with fear.”

She added that she decided to keep trimming her hair to deal with the sudden hair loss.

In July 2021, Pinkett Smith debuted her buzz cut in an Instagram post captioned, “Willow made me do it because it was time to let go.”

Smith has since apologized for his behavior at the awards show, saying he reacted “emotionally” to the joke but said “violence in all its forms is toxic and destructive.”
