Selma Blair showcases her newly grown hair while taking a stroll in LA ... following chemotherapy treatments for multiple sclerosis
Thirteen months after going public with her multiple sclerosis diagnosis, and enduring grueling chemotherapy treatments, Selma Blair has been venturing back out into the world with newly grown hair.
The actress, 47, not only flaunted her new tresses, she also showed off her growing strength when she was seen out-and-about in Los Angeles on Tuesday walking without the assistance of a walker or a cane.
And from the looks of the big beaming smile on her face, it was a good day for the Cruel Intentions star.

Blair looked glowing dressed in a white and purple-floral shirt that was paired with white pants that were rolled up at the ankles.
She rounded out her summery ensemble with sunglasses, white sneakers and a thick scarf that was firmly wrapped around her neck for style and comfort.
But on this day, the most important part of her outfit was the big, healthy smile on her face, to go along with her full head of grayish hair that has grown out significantly in recent weeks.

Also on Tuesday, the mother of an 8-year-old son named Arthur from a previous relationship with fashion designer Jason Bleick, shared a close-up snap of herself as she boasted about the benefits of candles in her home.
'I need candles,' she began in the caption. They give a spark of light on dark mornings and fill my house with a scent I love.'
Up until recently Blair had been proudly displaying her bald head since undergoing two months of intense physical therapy since she celebrated the end of her chemo treatments in late July.
Normally associated with cancer, chemotherapy can also be quite effective at killing cells that break down the nervous system, which can result in slowing down the disease of stopping it completely.
Her treatments also included a stem cell transplant.

During a speaking engagement at the Time 100 Health Summit in New York City last month, the Anger Management star carried a cane and used a three-wheeled walking bike on the red carpet.
While on stage she revealed she had not responded to other treatments and felt like she was out of options before trying chemo.
She was convinced to get forward with the multi-drug therapy after feeling immediate relief from just micro-dose before her full-on treatment, according to Today.
'So I was like, maybe I just have too much junk in there. And that killed some junk,’” she said.
'Like what do I care if it kills my whole body because my whole body is like, one big macrophage of yuck!'
