Alyssa Milano is getting candid about her lingering symptoms of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Melrose Place alum, 47, shared a video on Sunday to illustrate the amount of hair loss she’s experienced as a “long hauler,” a term medical professionals use to refer to someone who suffers from long-lasting COVID-19 symptoms.
“Thought I’d show you what #Covid19 does to your hair,” Milano captioned the clip. “Please take this seriously. #WearADamnMask #LongHauler.”
In the footage, Milano combs through her hair with a detangler brush to reveal clumps of hair that fall out with every stroke. “One brushing, this is my hair loss from COVID-19,” she says as she holds up a small pile of hair.
