“Now at this point, I can only laugh. Y’all know I’ve been struggling with alopecia and just all of a sudden one day, look at this line right here. Look at that,” she said.

Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair to fall out, for some it is extensive and leads to complete hair loss, in others it is patchy.

Smith, continued: “So it just showed up like that. Now this is going to be a little bit more difficult for me to hide. So I thought I’d just share it so you’re not asking any questions, but you know mama is gonna put some rhinestones in there.
