Now, the Blood and Water actress has started a YouTube channel in which she has conversations about her personal hair journey and the struggles that black women face when it comes to their hair.

Taking to her Instagram page to make the announcement, Gail revealed that the channel was inspired by the number of emails and messages she received from women who had questions about hair.

She wrote

Yep! This was me 3yrs ago! #TrueStory

This journey inspired the birth of @ethnogenics

This is way more prevalent than we think. From receding hairlines to bald patches to hair loss that starts in the middle of the head to scalp sensitivity. We, (women especially) have just become so good at hiding it and “suffering” / fighting it in silence.

September is #AlopeciaAwarenessMonth
My wish, is for everyone who is experiencing hair loss to know that you are not alone. I know that the experience comes with a ton of emotions. When we work through them, we come out stronger on the other side.

Here’s what I’d say about hair loss:
1) Get help as soon as you see it
2) Don’t wait to consult a dermatologist because early detection & treatment may prevent permanent hair loss.
3) Identify “your tribe”. This can be an emotional journey. Find the people who offer support … we can’t do it in secret.
4) Find products that support your regrowth process. I struggled with this, hence the birth of @ethnogenics
5) Be conscious of what you put your scalp & hair through. A lot of the hair loss is self inflicted … so if we know better, we can do better.
6) Despite of what society has taught us to believe … WE ARE NOT OUR HAIR … our hair is a part of us … but we are much more than that. ♥️
