Gail Mabalane and Altovise Lawrence Share Their Hair Loss Experiences and Encourage Those With The Condition. Hair has always been regarded as a crown for women. Unfortunately because of certain conditions, some women are forced to go bald. One of those who opened up about the reason behind going bald in 2019 was Gail Mabalane.
The talented actress was diagnosed with Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia, a common cause of hair loss in black women. Fortunately for Gail, she found out about her condition in its early stages, and was able to get treatment.
Another well known personality, Altovise Lawrence, has just revealed she also has the condition. The actress and radio host says she has been losing hair for just over 10 years and only got diagnosed with Alopecia Areata this year.
Both Gail and Altovise encouraged those with the condition, and assured them that they are not alone. They are also a living proof that bald is also beautiful.
