US congresswoman Ayanna Pressley reveals she has alopecia

US congresswoman Ayanna Pressley has revealed she is completely bald because of hair-loss condition Alopecia.

The Massachusetts Democrat disclosed in a video with The Root that she went totally bald in last December.

She shared a post on Twitter in which she wrote: “As a Black woman, the personal is political. My hair story is no exception. Sharing a very personal story today to create space for others.”

Ayanna said: “My twists have become such a synonymous & a conflated part of not only my personal identity & how I show up in the world, but my political brand. And that’s why I think it’s important that I’m transparent about this new normal & living with alopecia.”

In a video, she said: “I was very aware this hairstyle could be – would be – filtered and interpreted by some as a political statement that was militant.”

People said: ‘People will think you’re angry, and I said: “Well, they already think that.”
