Lindsay Lohan is working hard at her career comeback, but it seems like her own body is working hard against her. Not only is the young actress battling exhaustion and looking like a 40-year-old woman, now her hair may be falling out.

For one thing, she's bee dyeing her hair an awful lot lately. Black for her role as Elizabeth Taylor, blonde in random candid shots of the actress, brown, and then back to red for the 4th of July, all in the last couple months, reports NY Daily. Stepping out for a bite to eat on Thursday, the troubled 26-year-old actress was looking pretty dingy and flashing an apparent bald spot on the back of her head. Oh, and the restaurant she was headed to? E. Baldi, an Indian restaurant in Beverly Hills. I can't make this stuff up.

Lohan didn't look like she was ready for a run-in with media photobugs when she stepped out, wearing nothing memorable and without makeup, but celebs are caught in public looking little better than the rest of us all the time, it's not big deal. It's the bald spot that got the media rumbling early this morning, with entertainmentwise calling it "painful" looking, and the result of "badly maintained hair extensions."

"It appears that the years of hard partying and high-maintenance glamour with constant hair extensions has taken its toll on Lindsay's locks, so we think she should take them out and have a nice cuppa in front of the box. Fat chance…" opines Lucia Binding of the site.

TMZ concurred with the assessment damning hair extensions as the guilty party, quipping, "If this keeps up, it won't be long before the rehabbed 26-year-old wigs out again."

Of course, Lohan doesn't seem to be letting bad press get to her. Her Twitter is filled with what appear to be inside jokes between herself, Lady Gaga and Lana Del Ray, both of whom she reportedly invited over for a sleepover at the Chateau Marmont hotel Wednesday night. Reports say they trio spent the eve "watching movies and playing board games."
