Ricki Lake is opening up about her hair loss battle.

The former talk show host talked about her 30-year journey with the condition on “Good Morning America” and even showed off a new look.

"It was such a right of passage last year taking the leap of faith to shave my head, and my hair, thankfully, has grown back," Lake said about her decision to speak out about the condition last January.

"And I learned so much through the process of really letting go of something that had been really bothering me for decades,” she added.

At the time, she told Robin Roberts that the secret condition was "debilitating, embarrassing, painful, scary, depressing, [and] lonely,” adding that she would often mask it with hair treatments and extensions.
