A couple of weeks ago, Gail Mabalane shocked many of her fans when she was seen rocking a chiskop, although the actress looks amazing, many people did not expect to see her chop off her famous pixie.

The media personality recently took to her Instagram to reveal the real reason behind her new look. In a lengthy post, the star revealed that she was diagnosed with Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia.

"A few months ago I went to the salon for a routine hair wash. To my shock, after my wash, a big chunk of my hair was GONE!!! ūüė≥ After a few weeks of ‚Äúself medicating‚ÄĚ, I decided to consult a dermatologist. CCCA - Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia was the diagnosis. Simply put ... a very common cause of Alopecia or hair loss in black women," she wrote in part. Take a look at the post below:
