Actress Altovise Lawrence opens up about living with alopecia areata condition. Last year the star revealed that she had been losing her hair for the past 10 years.

“I’ve been losing hair for just over 10 years and only got diagnosed with alopecia areata this year. Besides balding on my head, I’ve begun losing my eyebrows and eyelashes. The fight isn’t over though. Bald is beautiful.” she wrote.

However, in a recent interview on Unpacked with Relebogile Mabotja, the actress revealed she cuts her hair every two to three days to mask the patches that show when she grows her hair.

In her words, she had struggled not having eyelashes and she felt sabotaged by make-up artists who would shape them differently every time she was on set.

She said her biggest issue has been being comfortable with her condition in the entertainment industry.

Altovise said while finding the right wig for an audition was another hurdle she had to overcome, she had started going to auditions with a bald head so casting directors could judge her for her talent and not her looks.

“I’ve resorted to auditioning bald. You’ll make up the character. It has [worked for me] because I’ve put it as a disclaimer. Even before I walk into the audition room you know I have alopecia and if you stress me about it, then it’s fine.”
