The Boris Kodjoe we all know and love is bald, tall and fine. But apparently, the brotha used to have hair. Like, a lot of it. And when it all went away, Kodjoe was crushed. Luckily, the Mr. Clean look definitely works in his favor.
Boris bravely opened up about his journey to baldness in a detailed Instagram post — accompanied by a throwback picture. In the captioned, he hilariously let it be known that he tried everything to save his strands, but alas his desperate attempts were in vain. Furthermore, all the secret serums, powders and sharpies … weren’t so secret.

Yep…go ahead, you can say it. Scream if you want to….I had HAIR!!!! 🕺🏾😊👍🏽Granted it was a long time ago and it left me for good right around the time I became a father. But I fought for it, pretended it was still there even though my hairline receded faster than I could color it in with #mascara or other USELESS anti-balding remedies. #Sharpie #OnlyForMen #HairFibers #FillInPowder #Serum yes, I did it all!! And was convinced noone would notice…BUT THEY ALL KNOW YOU’RE DOING IT….EVERYONE KNOWS!!!! And in the end… I cried 😫😢….and learned to say goodbye. And eventually I embraced my #BaldNsexy. 😉😁 Tag SOMEBODY YOU LOVE and who needs to LET IT GO!!!! 😉😁 #HairDontCare #LEDDIGOOOOO 😁👏🏾🕺🏾
Thankfully, after all the tears and tantrums, he learned to let it go. And now, he’s urging other men to do the same. So, because Boris put it out their first, here’s our list of fellas that need to let it go. Presented, of course, without commentary. We ain’t shady over here.
