Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) has revealed publicly that she has alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss.She announced the news Thursday via video with The Root. Her Senegalese twists have been her signature hairstyle. She said, "My twists have become such a synonymous and a conflated part of not only my personal identity and how I show up in the world, but my political brand.
