Selma Blair reveals shaved head amid MS treatment as she celebrates being discharged


Selma Blair has revealed her shaved head while she’s undergoing MS treatment, thanking fans for their support and pointing out that she’s getting used to a ‘new immune system.’

The Legally Blonde actress, who’s been open about her diagnosis and treatment online, shared a snap of herself looking pretty darn great as she spoke out about being discharged.

‘Today is a banner day. I am being discharged from the care of an incredible team of nurses and techs and a visionary Dr. who believes in my healing as much as I do,’ she wrote.

‘This has been a process. And will continue to be one. I am immunocompromised for next three months at least. So no kisses please. I wanted to make sure any complications that might arise here were my private space.’

The 47-year-old added: ‘And we got through brilliantly. I thank you all for your love and support and that extra dose of great with a @people cover. I see things so much more clearly now.

‘And I am excited to share this journey when I am ready. For now, I have recovery. And a great @the_alinker_world so I gotta split. Bye!!!!!! This is the best gift I could give to Arthur. #newimmunesystem #whodis?’

The new photo comes just a few hours after Selma shared a snap of her son Arthur cutting her hair, captioning it with an emotional post for his birthday.

Last year, the star revealed she was dealing with Multiple Sclerosis, a condition that can affect the brain and spinal cord – before rocking a badass cane to the Vanity Fair Oscars after party.

And just last week, Selma opened up about feeling ‘seemingly sicker’ – but pointed out she’s still going to keep riding her beloved horse.’

Opening up about her bond with Mr Nibbles, she told her 1.6million Instagram followers: ‘After I gave birth and felt half dead all the time, after the rage and the tears, after my heart exploded with caring and understanding, before any diagnosis, I searched for this horse.’

She added: ‘We only had a short time before I couldn’t even get to him or stay on. But he has come so far. And even though I may seem like I have gone farther away, I am learning and getting healthier.

‘Even as I get seemingly sicker. I will jump this horse around again. Affording horse shows will require some major work opportunities ahead. So I am asking for it all. I am asking. For all of us who want it. Ask. Ask. Listen.’
