She continued: & # 39; I cut my hair short to transfer myself and my son because of imminent baldness. Easy. Baldness came. I did not shave before that. Of course it fell out. Shiny. Pale dome. Nice enough. & # 39;

Throwback: Blair had previously dark brown locks (shown in 2016) and then a trimmed blonde bob before she shaved her head before chemotherapy

Then her hair experienced two months of & # 39; regrowth & # 39; but it came back and looked & # 39; pale and very thin & # 39; from, detailed Blair.

To her, the hairstyle just looked & # 39; sad & # 39; so she decided to shave it off again.

& # 39; I let it grow back. It was fragmentary in color and I wanted to color it brown. Ridiculous! I only succeeded in dyeing my scalp, & she wrote and added: & # 39; After a week I buzzed shorter with hair clippers and a few weeks later we are there. & # 39;

Her snap shows her short, pepper-and-salt locks, and Blair said she learns to embrace the new style rather than mourn her former brunette hair.

& # 39; I'll keep it short and gray, something I never wanted to do before. I equated giving up. And perhaps giving up long, brown hair, complete with time-consuming and expensive highlights and lowlights, is not necessarily a give up. Admit. Embrace. Sure. I'll try it, & she wrote.

Blair used social media to be more frank with her followers about her health journey following the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in August 2018. In October 2018, she officially announced the diagnosis to the public.

I cut my hair short to transfer myself and my son because of imminent baldness. Easy. Baldness came. I did not shave before that. Of course it fell out. Shiny. Pale dome. Nice enough. It took two months to start regrowth, and it was all right and pale and very scarce.

I shaved it. It looked too sad. For me. I let it grow back. It was fragmentary in color and I wanted to color it brown. Ridiculous! I really only succeeded in dyeing my scalp.

After a week I buzzed shorter with hair clippers and a few weeks later, here we are. A thin, patchy charcoal head. I'll see how a pixie grows. Or I'll buzz again. It seems too much to have long hair again.

So I'll keep it short and gray, something I never wanted to do before. I equated giving up. And perhaps giving up long, brown hair, complete with time-consuming and expensive highlights and lowlights, is not necessarily a give up. Admit. Embrace. Sure. I will try.

Unless … a chic trouser company with a thick checkbook wants to lure me out of the retirement dye. Then I will sing about the glory of processed hair! I will certainly do. So, until that day, enjoy the head.

In recent months, Blair has followed a difficult treatment route with a stem cell and chemotherapy, leading to hair loss.

These treatments were chosen as an aggressive route to target multiple sclerosis.

The condition occurs when the immune system focuses on the protective covering that covers nerve fibers. It can then cause problems with communication between the brain and the rest of the body, and even permanently damage the nerves.

Blair's decision to undergo chemotherapy came after her body rapidly declined from MS, she revealed when she spoke to the Time 100 Health Summit in October.

& # 39; I really declined faster than I thought was acceptable, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; I wasn't going to do it, I thought: & # 39; I do not ruin my body, what is left of it. Why should I put this terrible medicine, chemotherapy, into me? I have no cancer, & # 39; & # 39; Blair continued. & # 39; But I had little options left and I looked. & # 39;

She is currently recovering from her treatments without clear answers about how they have affected her MS or stopped the disease.

After sharing her post-chemotherapy snap online, Blair got the support of her followers, including actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

& # 39; You have never looked as beautiful as these last months & # 39 ;, Paltrow wrote in the comments.
