My Big Fat Fabulous Life: Whitney Thore Hair Secret Revealed
My Big Fat Fabulous Life celeb Whitney Thore has dealt with hair loss for over thirteen years. Right after college, he noticed her hair was thinning and she had bald spots. This is a direct result of her having PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). This hormonal disorder affects women of childbearing age. There are several ways this disorder manifests itself. It affects the ability to conceive a child and as Whitney herself says, it causes “bearding, balding, and being fat”.
My Big Fat Fabulous Life personality Whitney Thore tried everything to restore her hair back to the crowning glory it once was. The best hair restoration in the country said she wasn’t a candidate for a hair transplant. So, the MBFFL life alum started wearing hair extensions. Additionally, Whitney credits two products for making her hair look this great. First is Babe hair extensions and second is Toppikhair Hair hair building fibers. The later the reality star calls “life-changing” Of course none of this would be possible without an amazing hairstylist. Thankfully Whitney Thore has the perfect trifecta.

A ton of y’all ask me what I’m doing to make my hair look thicker and healthier…and the answer is that it’s not my hair! PCOS can cause baldness due to extra androgenic production; I’ve been losing mine for the last 13 years. Yes, I’ve tried EVERYTHING. Over 10 years ago the top hair restoration doctor in the country told me I didn’t even have enough hair for a transplant. This is by far my biggest insecurity, and I’ve been wearing extensions for the last 5 years. The two products that make this finished look possible are @babe_hair extensions and @toppikhair hair building fibers (seriously life-changing). And of course, an amazing hair stylist doesn’t hurt — thank you, @ericaaderr! Thinking about the future gives me anxiety. I imagine at some not-too-far-off point I’ll have to shave my head and start wearing wigs, but for now I hope this video helps some of you looking for ways to build hair confidence! 🎥: @hopeleigh #PCOS #hairloss #hairextensions #babehairextensions #toppik
