Todd Chrisley is having trouble maintaining his signature look from prison.

After his daughter Savannah Chrisley recently paid a visit to her incarcerated parents, she opened up about her reaction to seeing her father, 53, with gray hair instead of the Chrisley family blond for which he's become known since Chrisley Knows Best premiered on USA in 2014.

"I will say it's really weird seeing him with gray hair," said Savannah, 25, on her Unlocked podcast. "Like, really weird. He's definitely used some color over the years, and now seeing him with gray hair. I'm like, 'Oh my gosh!'"

She explained that after visiting her parents for the first time in prison, she has "so much hope and so much restored strength" for the future and has realized "this isn't the end."

"And I know that they're going through what they're going through for us to make a difference, for us to make a change," added Savannah. "Because whether this appeal works or not, they're still coming out with a story."

A federal judge sentenced Todd and Julie Chrisley, 50, in November to a combined 19 years in prison for tax fraud. Todd is serving his 12-year term at a facility in Florida, while Julie has begun her seven-year sentence at a prison in Kentucky. Both parties will be required to serve 16 months of probation after completing their respective sentences.

Todd and Julie are currently in the process of appealing their case. Meanwhile, Savannah is taking care of her younger brother Grayson, 16, and niece Chloe, 10. But the experience has been a challenge for her.

"The other night, I had a full-on breakdown. I was trying to find Chloe proper clothes to go and visit my parents and find her hair stuff," she recently shared on Unlocked. "I just sat down on the floor and started crying."

She added, "I am not my mother. How am I going to do this? I don't feel that I am worthy or capable enough of doing the job she's done for all her life."
