Lake first opened up about her hair loss with fans in January 2020 with posts on Facebook and Instagram. At the time, she said she was "finally ready to share my secret."

"It has been debilitating, embarrassing, painful, scary, depressing, lonely, all the things," she wrote, in part.


"There have been a few times where I have even felt suicidal over it. Almost no one in my life knew the level of deep pain and trauma I was experiencing."

The star also explained that she was sharing her story to help others struggling with hair loss, adding, "I am not alone in this and my goal is to help others while at the same time unshackle myself from this quiet hell I have been living in."
