In an episode aired on November 20, 2018, Alessandra de Rossi declined to reveal her reason for going bald.
Critically-acclaimed actress Alessandra de Rossi turned heads and shocked showbiz enthusiasts when she boldly shaved her head in 2018. The drastic change in hairstyle stirred speculations among netizens, and positive feedback as well because, as funky as she is, Alessandra rocked the look with so much style.
When asked by Boy Abunda about the surprising new ‘do, Alessandra kept her response hilarious yet intriguing. “For a cause, may pinaghandaan ako” she said followed by her trademark boisterous laughter. The real motive behind going bald remained a secret then.
Nevertheless, Alessandra gamely reacted to fans’ assumption – from hair problems to depressive coping mechanism. A netizen commented that Alessandra shaved her head due to a scalp condition, which she denied. “Actually tawang-tawa ako sa mga nagsasabing, ‘Grabe tipid ka sa shampoo.’ Noong isang araw, tinitingnan ko ‘yung mga suklay ko na nakahilera, sabi ko, ‘Hindi ko na sila magagamit’,” expressed Alessandra.
She continued, admitting that she rarely brushes her hair. “Never akong nagsuklay sa buong buhay ko. Ang nagsusuklay ng hair ko ‘yung mga make-up artists sa taping tapos talagang buhol-buhol siya.”
Others say she went for a daring cut due to depression akin to how controversial Hollywood star Britney Spears coped with a mental illness. Alessandra simply made light of the topic. “I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell,” she quipped. The stunning actress then related a story about her 19-year-old self wishing to go bald after her best friend’s death. She said her mom already gave her the go signal but took it back.
