On Friday, Selma Blair, the Cruel Intentions star, shared a picture on Instagram in which her seven-year-old son, Arthur Saint Bleick is shaving her head with an electric razor.

"People. Back to my roots," Blair captioned the picture.

The 46-year-old actor revealed in October last year in another Instagram post that she could no longer lift her arms to brush her hair because of her multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis.

After making her diagnosis public, Blair has been vocal about the struggles she has to endure, including sensory and vocal issues, as well as fatigue.


She went to a shorter bob for several months until Arthur shaved her head.

In a February 2019 interview with Vanity Fair, Blair even expressed her frustration about a lack of stylish clothes for people with MS where she hoped to team up with a designer one day to change that.
