Selma Blair on post-pregnancy hair loss I’m going to end up bald


Selma Blair has joked that she’s going to be totally bald by the time her post-pregnancy hair loss has finished. The actress, who welcomed son Arthur Saint four months ago with boyfriend Jason Bleick, said that hormonal changes have been playing havoc with her hair. “This is so not glamorous, but it’s true. I need to take longer showers so that I can collect the hair that falls out and throw it away so I don’t clog the drain. Why do actresses never talk about that?” she told People magazine. “It just started falling out at the three-month mark, and I’m not a girl who likes extensions, so Selma’s going to be bald!” But while her barnet may be thinning, her son is going from strength to strength. “He rolls over now and he got a bouncy toy! It’s like the biggest moment of your life, ‘Oh my gosh, I get 10 minutes free now!’” she said. “Before, he had a play mat, mummy or daddy or now a nanny that comes for a few hours in the daytime, to hold him. But now, autonomy! He got a Fisher-Price Jumperoo I wish I had one for every room!”
