Jada Pinkett Smith is something of a chameleon when it comes to her hair. Along the years, the star’s sported everything from finger-wave bobs to cropped pixie cuts and long braids to voluminous curls. But in 2018 her fans started to notice something: the Matrix trilogy actress was beginning to conceal her ever-changing locks with turbans. And when Pinkett Smith realized that her head was becoming a subject of fevered discussion, she chose to reveal the heartrending reason why she now covers up.
Perhaps inevitably, Pinkett Smith broached the topic on her Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk. The series often sees her, her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and her daughter, Willow, discussing issues of the day from their different generational points of view. And on this particular occasion, the host wanted to dig into the subject of insecurities.
