Kelly Ripa’s Hair Is Going Gray During The Lockdown And She’s Showing It Off

Her husband's response is so sweet!

Hair maintenance in the time of coronavirus is a serious matter. Hair salons may be closed, but hair keeps growing — and those roots are showing.

One woman who’s embracing her gray is Kelly Ripa. The “Live With Kelly and Ryan” host is keeping a photo log of her new gray growth on her Instagram stories, naming the series #RootWatch. And during a live TV appearance on April 20, when Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos co-hosted Ripa’s show in the absence of Ryan Seacrest, she gave viewers a close-up.

“You can kind of see it forcing. It wants to show you. It wants you to see the reality,” Ripa said as she tilted her head down to face the camera and parted her hair.

Consuelos, for one, likes the natural look. “I gotta tell you, I see you in the morning and I think it looks beautiful. I like it. I’m looking forward to when it’s just completely gray.”

“Which is probably by the end of the week,” Ripa deadpanned.

Ripa had previously addressed the issue of hair-coloring during quarantine with her regular co-host, Seacrest, in a segment posted online in March, in which the two hosts interviewed a couple of hairstylists to find out the best tactics for coloring your own hair at home.
