Cheyenne Jackson is showing off his massive hair transplant scar and boy does it look painful, ouch! The 6'4" American Horror Story actor is known for his classic good looks and has the stunning combination of piercing blue eyes, with dark hair. To see Cheyenne without his hair would be different, but for Cheyenne, the thought became one filled with anxiety and dread. To combat the fear that people would find out his secret, he openly shared a photo of his scar on Instagram and revealed that he has had not one — but five hair transplant surgeries.

Cheyenne is married to Jason Landau and the couple has two children. It appears that Cheyenne struggled more with losing his hair as he began experiencing hair loss at the young age of 22-years-old. Cheyenne had a whole career ahead of him on stage and screen so it makes sense that losing his hair would have presented additional challenges for him.

Cheyenne stated the following on Instagram.

" I’ve been DREADING this day for 17 years. The day when my horrible secret would be revealed.
No, this gnarly scar across my head isn’t from life-saving brain surgery, nor did I narrowly survive a shark attack.
It’s worse. (At least in Hollywood...) I had hair transplant surgery. 5 of them, to be exact over 14 years."

Cheyenne made it clear that he didn't think his hair loss was the most important topic of discussion — especially with all that has happened due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but he wanted to release himself from the fear of keeping the secret. He continued by saying the following.

"I started losing my hair around 22. My older brother was balding too, but was way braver & cooler & just shaved his off. It was really emotional for me to watch it fall out & I felt less attractive & truly less like myself as the days went on, so I saved up and got my first surgery at 28. I hid it from everyone. It was painful & expensive but I started to feel better about myself."

Many people left negative comments on Cheyenne's post as they didn't seem to think his hair transplant scar was a big deal. Still, it's important to realize that Cheyanne revealed his secret to try and help others who are dealing with issues they are trying to keep secret due to fear and shame.

He used the hashtag #showyourscars and spoke about the importance of self-love.
