Ranvir Singh revealed hair loss as she spoke about her ongoing battle with alopecia during Lorraine’s presentation on Friday.

The 44-year-old host discussed the Oscar controversy between Will Smith and Chris Rock, after things got physical with the pair onstage after Chris Rock joked about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair.

In a conversation with Dr. Amir Khan told Ranvir that hair loss is not something to joke about, revealing the statistic that eight million women in the UK suffer from hair loss.

Ranvir went on to share that despite the unfortunate circumstances in which the condition has been brought to light, the Oscars have shed light on alopecia and sparked debate.

She added: “It certainly got us talking about what it is…and women know they’re not alone.”

dr. Amir later said he struggled with hair loss in his younger years, admitting that it is a trust breaker for many people.

Meanwhile, Jada first opened up about her alopecia in 2018, and has been open in sharing her journey ever since — with a slew of celebrities who supported the actress after the Oscar drama.

WHAT IS ALOPECIA?

Alopecia, which causes baldness, is considered an autoimmune disease. The immune system – the body’s defense system – turns against itself.

What are the symptoms?

“Usually one or more small bald spots, about the size of a 50-cent piece, appear on the scalp. The hair may start to grow again in one place while another bald spot develops. Hair can also thin all over the head,” said Marilyn Sherlock, president of the Institute of Trichologists.

What causes it?

“For some reason, the body’s immune system starts attacking its own hair follicles. Special white blood cells in the body called T lymphocytes stop hair from growing,” she adds.

Can worry make it worse?

Stress has been shown to prolong the problem.

Is it a hereditary condition?

There is strong evidence that alopecia, like other autoimmune diseases, runs in families. About 25 percent of patients have a family history of the condition.

Who gets it?

Alopecia areata usually affects teenagers and young adults, but it can affect people of any age. It is just as common in men as it is in women.

Is there a cure?

There is no known cure, although there are several treatments that may be effective for some people.
