Lili Reinhart is opening up about a condition that can majorly impact one’s self-esteem.
“Was just diagnosed with alopecia in the midst of a major depressive episode,” reads overlapping text on Reinhart’s video.
In the video, Reinhart lip syncs to audio of actor Jeremy Strong saying, “I’m pushed beyond the limits of what a person should be pushed to endure.”
Reinhart also added the caption, “Red light therapy is my new best friend. #alopecia #mentalhealth.”
Lili Reinhart attends the Los Angeles Premiere of Netflix's "Look Both Ways" in 2022.
The actor didn’t specify what kind of alopecia she has. There are generally three types — alopecia totalis, alopecia universalis and alopecia areata — that refer to varying degrees of hair loss on the scalp or body.
Jada Pinkett Smith has alopecia areata, which is an autoimmune disease that creates patches of baldness. The “Matrix” actor has been open about her struggles with hair loss for years.
In 2018, Pinkett Smith revealed she had the condition on her Facebook Live show “Red Table Talk,” saying it was “terrifying” when she started losing “handfuls of hair” in the shower.
“It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking with fear,” she said at the time.
