well its been a while since ive used this platform. For some odd reason, without medication and without care, ive experienced full regrowth for two years now. Dont know why or how and i dont care, with or without it im still me. So a shout out to others who have and know the emotional stress barring this condition, personally ive realized character is far more important than the outer shell and still today i truly believe the most beautiful people are those that are the smile no matter what!!

It has been a while since I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. I notice every time I stress out I tend to have new bald patches. I like my wigs but they tend to be very hot.

My daughter was diagnosed with AA in 2010.

Hi all, My story began when I was 11-12 years of age,(1979-80), this was the first time I suffered from Alopecia. Back then it was called Alopecia Nervosa Type A. At the time I was a child actor. An Australian film I did called Mystery Island (1980), shows the hair loss in certain scenes. My hair did grow back after a few years. Now 35 years later I am experiencing alopecia (areata) hair loss again. It seems to be far more aggressive although I did not shave my head back then as I have done on this occasion. All signs show that it is the areata variety although the hair loss is also on my chin and around my mouth,(the goatee area).

Just letting everyone here know about a book I'm working on.  It's really starting to take shape, and I'm looking for additional stories from men, women and children in all stages of hairloss.  

I've been featuring people who have made a difference with their experience by making choices to do something better, or to living up to their true potential. 

If you'd like to be part of this project, feel free to check out my website for "Head-On, Stories of Alopecia".  It can be seen at  You can also see it on facebook under the "Head-On..." title.  I would love it if you could "like" and "share" it so it will continue to encourage more people to share their stories.

The alopecia community has always been so supportive of one another, and my hope is that word of this project will spread like wildfire. I look forward to hearing your story.

I'm looking for ideas on shampoo and conditioner. Since my flare up this time my scalp is more sensitive than usual.

Does anyone know where I could find some statistics? I want to know what % of people recover fully when they have Alopecia Areata but only have one spot.


I fully noticed it's presence 3 days ago! But 2-3 months ago, my boyfriend had pointed out that I was missing a little bit of hair but we both thought it was just my rosette...


I haven't seen any other spots...
