JoJo Siwa has opened up about a bald spot on the side of her head.

The 'So You Think You Can Dance' judge, who has recently been embroiled in a spat with Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure, took to TikTok to explain that the bald patch is not from wearing her hair in high ponytails - it's from stress.

She clarified that she developed a stress rash during her time on the reality TV show Dance Moms, where she first shot to fame as a young dancer in 2015.

However, one fan was convinced that the rash had actually come about because of Siwa's trademark hairstyle. For years, the star wore her blonde hair in a tight high ponytail accessorized with a massive bow.

Responding to the fan in a video captioned "stress rash squadddddd babbyyyy," Siwa explained: "So no, it's actually not from the ponytails."

The 19-year-old star then demonstrated how because of the side she used to wear her ponytail on, any bald patch caused by it would be on the other side of her head. She added that the area that does have a bald spot "didn't really get pulled at all."

"When I was little, I had a really bad stress rash right here on Dance Moms. I would pick at it all day long, and I damaged every single hair follicle that has ever been right there," Siwa continued.

"So now I'm carrying her love with me. Right there," she added, pointing to the spot.

After years of wearing her long hair up, Siwa ditched the look in favor of a pixie haircut a few months ago.

In April, she debuted her new look with a selfie posted to Instagram and captioned: "HAPPPPPY."

In a video on her Instagram story at the time, she raved about her new look. "So I just got my hair cut yesterday. And I went for a down and curly moment. But today, I went for an up and back moment, and I don't know, the picture that I posted was from yesterday when it was down and kind of curled."
