Tyra Banks is going back to her roots. Literally.

On Tuesday’s premiere of the fifth season of her Emmy-winning talk show, Tyra unveiled her “real hair” – yep, no wigs, weaves, or extensions.

The former supermodel turned TV mogul first tweeted the news to her fans on August 17: "Guess What! I'm rockin' my REAL hair on my talk show September 8th. No fake hair at all! Will be the hair coming out of my scalp! 4 all 2 C!" In a later press release, she declared a "National Real Hair Day."

Tyra said she showed her real locks because she wants to redefine beauty and help women appreciate who they are, inside and out.

BTW: Banks’ show has a new home for it’s new season -- moving from syndication to the CW. Her reality show, America's Next Top Model, begins its 13th cycle Wednesday on the same network.
