She’s not afraid to show off what the extended quarantine does to her headdress.

On Saturday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan Kelly star Ripa posted a revealing look at the monthly progression of her grizzly roots, which developed during the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The daytime star, 49, uploaded a grid of close-ups of her scalp for her 2.8 million subscribers, one for each month of the year, showing a marked change as the area graying was increasing.

“Maybe this meme is a week old at this point… but does that really compare to those roots?” Ripa asked in the caption.

“My version of the # 2020Calendar is just… real…” she continued, accompanied by a handful of emojis.

In the grid, January starts off with a lavish, glamorous snap of perfectly styled Kelly, but in March the close-ups start to show some gray roots.

For May, she added a funny animoji showing her as an old woman, with all gray hair.

And from July through September, the same snap is featured – Ripa stares wide-eyed in the mirror as her face is surrounded by a crown of illuminating silver roots.

It wasn’t until the latest edition of the former All My Children star’s ‘roots watch’, which she started at the start of the lockdown because she knew she wouldn’t be able to visit the show.

On March 22, Kelly laughed at the small sacrifices she and others had to give up by isolating themselves, showing off her first close-up selfie in her Instagram Stories.

She blocked her face with her phone, but gave a clear view of her honey blonde locks, which parted in the middle to reveal a stepping band of gray.

“The first week of the Root watch,” she joked.

Ripa may have joked about these little inconveniences, but the daytime show host continued to urge her fans to self-isolate and take precautions as the pandemic rages across much of the United States.
