Ricki Lake shares emotional hair loss story
Ricki Lake has revealed how shaving her head helped her to find love, while freeing her from her secret decades-long battle with hair loss that left her feeling suicidal, as she proudly shows off her newly regrown locks.
The 52-year-old actress made the decision to buzz off all her hair in January last year, a bold move that she shared with the world on Instagram - where she also opened up about her hair loss struggles, which she had kept hidden for decades, while behind-the-scenes, it was slowly destroying her confidence.
Teamwork: Ricki has now teamed up with Danish haircare brand Harklinikken, the company behind her 'miraculous' hair regrowth
Say what? 'I'm feeling like I have to pinch myself because I never, ever anticipated that I'd be in the place right now where my hair has grown back,' she said of her journey with Harklinikken
Although she admits that shaving her head was an 'impulsive' decision, Ricki now says she couldn't be happier about doing it - revealing to DailyMail.com that the 'freedom' she felt after finally sharing her hair loss story restored her self-confidence and eventually led her to find love with the 'perfect' man.
