    Jada recently took to Instagram to post a video in which she shows off one of the bare scalp patches as a result of her alopecia, and she had some words of wisdom to share about her condition as well.

    "Mama's gonna have to take it down to the scalp so nobody thinks she got brain surgery or something😜," she wrote in the IG caption. "Me and this alopecia are going to be friends … period!😆."

    "Now, at this point, I can only laugh," she said while showing off the patch. "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."
