Selma Blair Shares Unexpected Side Effect Of Chemotherapy: 'Thick And Substantial Peach Fuzz'

Selma Blair's openness with her journey after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) has been inspiring and raising awareness around the world. The actress, best known for Cruel Intentions, Hellboy, Legally Blonde, and The Sweetest Thing, has documented many parts of her journey on her Instagram.

When she first started to need a cane to help with her mobility, she proudly made a statement at the Oscars.

She paired a gorgeous gown with her cane for some extra glamour at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, and she looked amazing doing it. MS, as an auto-immune disease that attacks tissue in the central nervous system, often reduces a person's mobility.

When she upgraded from a cane to a walking bike, she shared that with the world as well.

"It allowed me to have a joyous time with family, friends and keep my brain activated as I prepared and recovered from an intense and badly wanted medical procedure," she shared about the device.

Perhaps most dramatic of all was the debut of her shaved head.

Selma underwent chemotherapy treatments for her MS, and with chemotherapy comes hair loss. Selma decided to shave her entire head and debuted the look on her Instagram.

She had a sense of humor about the whole thing.

Her most recent update on an unexpected side effect of her chemotherapy is also about hair — but this time, it's the way it's growing.
