So inspiring.  Thanks Ricki.  I grew up watching your shows.  Those other ladies' wigs were perfect.

❤ This is wonderful an encouraging. 

She has a good covering

of hair though.  Curious...Does she have alopecia areata or thinning or ?

I have been so bothered by this story!  Anyone else?  She doesn't say she has alopecia.  She talks about crash dieting and hormones and birth control and even hair coloring/teasing.  She is not advocating for alopecia nor do I think she has it.   From someone who has alopecia totalis since 4 years old (now 47) It makes me sorta angry. Sorry

Hate to be cynical here but does Ricky have a book or movie being released in the near future and need to be back in the headlines ? I see zero evidence of any alopecia in her scalp. Great coverage and no visible patches or thinning at all.

  • I had the same thought... looks like she has a lot of hair.  But I googled her name and she appears to be wearing Pieces in quite a few photos.

Not understanding her issue her hair is thinning ok Im sure most of us wish we had that much hair I would be thrilled if I had that much hair oh well wish her the best

I guess her pain is not relative to our own situation.

I think she has alopecia (hair loss) but not like ours (Alopecia Areata)
