Michelle Obama

Is Michelle Obama losing her hair?

The first lady's brief appearance on 'Jeopardy' sparked a social media frenzy and left many users wondering if she's going bald.

From In the Know:

The first lady popped up on the long-running quiz show on Tuesday to promote her “Let’s Move!” anti-childhood obesity initiative.

In one clue, FLOTUS talked about rinsing canned vegetables to reduce sodium and how much Vitamin A could be found in sweet potatoes. But what many on social media up in arms appeared to not be nutrition, but an apparent lack of follicles.

But ITK is surmising this mane mystery is more a case of a quirky camera angle and lighting than Obama opting to be the first first lady to debut a chrome dome.

And there you have it; Mrs. Obama isn't going bald.

On closer inspection, it appears that her thinning hair is pulled back in a severe pony tail. Add to that the bright studio lighting which illuminates her head at an angle that makes it look like her hair is even thinner than it is.

The first lady is simply going through the change.

      I've always had a see through hairline, like Janet in Why Did I Get Married. Natural for 20 years with an inch of baby like Chili. Hate Hate Hate it and I've tried everything.

      With the right lighting I could look bald. Shoot I ain’t got the most even edge line. I got a faux widows peak and one side scoops down further than the other. And my forehead big :facepalm: I used to stay with a swoop. I just now embraced it’s beauty and said it is because my big beautiful brain is in there. Who want to say that ain’t why? :huh:

      @Blanche how to they know about your mom(s)? Not that you need to hide anything but unless you were talking about it or maybe had up pictures I don’t know how they would know.

      @Unshake WHALE *wrings hands* I am currently using nothing :shock: And that is the problem. I have had the shot before :nono: and blew up then after these last two kids I did the pills and pretty much same thing along with headaches. Hubby was like please don’t get them anymore they throw your body off. So I am thinking about the mirena thingy. Or something like that. But why did he tell me the other day he wanted another baby. Said he is confident it will be a boy. I can’t :no: Ya’ll pray for me. This ain’t right. I ain’t birthing no more babies

    • http://youtu.be/bQaBEm_mh5U MisTaken: So thick :buttshake: she make everybody else in the room so uncomfortable :winky:

      @unshake :no: I don't want another one. PERIOD. Like at all. They are expensive. I already drive an SUV and it's packed with seats and stuff on the daily not to mention if we travel. My son is just now getting independent a little. I am just now starting to work on myself and get me time. It's been all about them for 10 years. I think it's time for me to get some time. I think he sees how good and beautiful the kids are. The y bring us so much joy. It makes him want another bc they are getting bigger. But he doesn't have to carry them and be here all the time. He likes to wait until they can walk and talk and then he is excited :lol:
