It looks like her hair to me. It's so funny that it's hard to believe on this site...that tries to break the stereotype and when we see someone with long hair we doubt it. Go figure! I work with a lady who has the same thyroid problem as Wendy. She has Dreds, she bleaches and her hair looks similar to Wendys'. The hair has a strange, dry/course texture (regardless of hair type) and feel to it but it is still long, it's thin but long and fragile.
