ZaraLena then added: “Bald is Beautiful ..

“So on Friday I decided to brave the shave. My hair has fallen in the space of just 5 weeks and it was time to deal with it all leaving me for a while.

“Still an unknown cause but with the radical fall it’s looking like a viral hit to my immune system causing it to attack itself.

“Despite the past month being the hardest challenge I’ve faced I’ll be damned if I let it take over my life as well as my hair.”


Sharing a powerful message for some followers who may be going through the same struggle, she wrote: “For those also suffering with alopecia this ones for you. I’m there to hold your hand through every step of the way, regardless of the good or bad days.”

ZaraLena then added: “Things get put into perspective when you’re tested with challenges like this, but it is just a test and I’m hoping it’s the making of me.

“I’m thankful I’ve got this opportunity to show a raw/ real fight to whoever sees my posts. Because unfortunately we live in a world where the pressures to be something special are immense to a point where people hide their struggles and pretend life is perfect. It’s not. And that’s ok sometimes.”

The determined star then added: “Hopefully a year from now I’ll look back and have not only thicker hair, but thicker skin too.
