The freshman Democrat revealed in an interview with The Root, which dropped on Thursday, that she first began noticing patches in her hair back in the fall.
“In the fall, when I was getting my hair retwisted, is the first time that I was made aware that I had some patches,” Pressley said. “From there, it accelerated very quickly.”
The congresswoman said it eventually got to a point where she had “been waking up every morning to sinkfuls of hair.”
“Every night I was employing all the tools that I had been schooled and trained in throughout my life as a Black woman because I thought that I could stop this. I wrapped my hair. I wore a bonnet. I slept on a silk pillowcase,” said Pressley, who in 2018 became the first black woman elected to Congress from Massachusetts.
