Selma Blair is showing off her new look to the world.

The actress recently finished an intense round of treatment for multiple sclerosis. She posted the picture of her new hairdo on her Instagram on Thursday.

Blair is pictured standing confident and newly shorn ready to leave the hospital with her walking device, an Alinker bike.

“Today is a banner day. I am being discharged from the care of an incredible team of nurses and techs and a visionary Dr. who believes in my healing as much as I do,” she wrote in her upbeat Instagram post. “This has been a process. And will continue to be one.”

In her post, Selma says that she’s immunocompromised for the next three months and will need to limit interacting with people. Selma also said that her recovery is the best possible gift she could give her son, Arthur, who just turned 8-years-old.

Sarah Michelle Gellar, who starred with Blair in the film, Cruel Intentions, wrote a message to her friend in the comments.

“Counting down the days till you are home,” Gellar said.

Blair has been undergoing a variety of treatments ever since she was diagnosed with MS last August, according to People.

I slept two hours. There is a pain. In my head. In my throat where the tears start. I want to smell him. Tell him I am so proud of him. Hold him. And I will. Just not on his birthday. Which is today. It was a painful induced labor. He was weeks late according to doctors. I felt fine. He wouldn’t listen. And there was still fluid. But I was pressured , and agreed. Defeated. The inducing was horrific and no dilation. Full labor with no dilation. for 37 hours. I finally asked for an epidural. I was so at their mercy. And I had to protect him. I was scared of motherhood. My friend @juliedesanto , his godmother , drove two hours to be by my side. To hold my stricken face. To tell me I will be a good enough mother. Good enough. And I started to relax. He was born at 1021 this morning. July 25. I even had to fire a doctor who said I needed a c section. And got my beloved dr paul crane back in town to easily deliver our boy. Jason cut the cord and said he looked like me. And now my kid can cut his moms hair and make jokes and assure me just by being him that I am good enough. Even if we aren’t together for this birthday. Which makes tears well, I know he is happy with dad , dancing and playing on the beach later today. What more could I really ask for. Happy birthday. My son. I love you oceans, mama #arthursaintbleick ????. @cassblackbird ???? #cassblackbird

In October of last year, Blair revealed to the public in an emotional Instagram post that she had the disease. She said that Saved by the Bell actress Elizabeth Berkley told her to see her brother, who is a physician, Dr. Jason Berkley.

Blair told her fans that she had secretly suffered from MS symptoms “for years” before getting a proper diagnosis. She did not take the symptoms seriously until she “fell down” in front of Dr. Berkley, according to Variety.

She didn’t reveal further details about the most recent treatment in her post, or what type of results she’s expecting to see.

Blair will be appearing in the new Netflix series, Another Life.

MS is a condition of the central nervous system that causes symptoms like vision loss, pain, fatigue, muscle weakness, and loss of coordination.
