as a civil-libertarian i greatly appreciated al gore's fiery speech on C-SPAN today. while the former vice-president looked a little heavier, i noticed his hair was much thicker than it was in the 2000 presidential race. did he get a hair transplant or is he combing his hair differently?

I think he let his layers grow out a bit more than he used to. And he may have switched styling products - perhaps from styling gel to a mousse. He could be using a blowdryer instead of letting it air-dry. Any of these changes could produce puffier, thicker looking hair.
He still combs a part from the same side, but he must toussle it a bit with his fingers, now. I don't think he got a transplant - I just think he's styling it in a looser, groovier way.

That and hanging out making inflamatory (don't get me wrong - I loved it) speeches is a hell of a lot less stressful than being VP and running for President. Stress makes hair fall out, therefore, no stress, more hair.

Reversible hair loss after stress sounded like something that might need a source, so here's one. Not sure what's up with Gore, but temporary stress-related hair loss is definitely a thing.
