JoJo Siwa discusses the psychological and physical effects of appearing on Dance Moms.
The former contestant of Dancing With the Stars uploaded a TikTok video of herself showing off a bald area on the side of her head. Captioning the video she shared on July 26, she wrote, “When someone notices my bald spot and wonders where it’s from…” The video clip then cuts to a photo montage of a young JoJo from her appearance on the Lifetime show.
She claimed in the caption that she had “no more hair there” due to the “stress rash on my head” she experienced while filming Dance Moms. JoJo explained why she was missing hair when a fan asked if the bald spot was caused by the tight ponytails she used to wear.
“No, it’s actually not from the ponytails, because if it was from my ponytails—considering it went on this side—it would be this,” she remarked, pointing to the opposite side of her head, in another video. “When I was little, I had a really bad stress rash right here on Dance Moms, and I would pick at it all day long.”
JoJo further added, “I damaged every single hair follicle that has ever been right there.”
