I've spoke with a few members in this group, but just wanted to let the rest of you 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.  

This group sounds like one that has reached a level of acceptance that helps us grow, and I'd love to talk with you and hear about your story.  

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 shaved my head today for the first time in about 3 months & it felt great to get rid of all that hair (my hair grows all over my head except for the top). I don't enjoy the shaving process (hair clippings everywhere), but once its done, I enjoy the results. So I swore to myself for the umpteenth time that I will start shaving my head on a regular basis. I think it would be easier to deal with, too (less hair to cut & less mess).

that is wonderful Bruce. Nothing wrong at all with being told we look younger. LOL. I particularly enjoy when Im at the gym and while all the other ladies are blowing drying their hair, all I have to do is get dressed and walk out. So much easier and less time consuming.

Thanks, Terri. After 2 1/2 months, I'm chilling out. My family has been surprisingly low key about it. I think part of that may be that when I tried shaving my head in 1994, I had a full head of brown hair and now I had close-cropped white hair. Even my younger nephew (9) has gotten more used to it (initially he was weirded out by it and his big brother kept trying to put his hand on it-LOL). This weekend I met up with a big group of online friends and they all commented that it looked great or that I look younger (I never get tired of hearing that!!!)

I still have my moments, but a lot of the time I look in the mirror and think "this is OK--I can deal with this". I'm starting to like the fact that I'm not looking at Santa Claus in the face any more! Granted, I'll be glad not to have to shave as much. But I'm starting to see that "hair is overrated".

hey there,
to my mind having bald spots and being bald is definetly underrated.
There is so much potecial for bald-spot-hairstyles and so many different beautifoul heads...
only because certain hairstyles are set as "normal" it dosn't mean, that other haairstyles and bald heads are not as normal and as beautifoul...
sometimes I wonder: what if all the people with hairtrouble would admit it... would it be more "normal"?

Congrats Bruce. For me I found shaving the last of my hair off was more a release and taking back my choice. As oppose to letting alopecia decide how my hair was going to go. Its been 15 months since the day I shaved my head (Im AU everywhere else) and since that day my confidence has grown more and more. I have found that people have been receptive since then, more to do with my growing confidence Im sure. Even the "stares" I find I dont notice them as much and if I do I just tell myself that they are just jealous that I can pull off the look better than they could hope to. LOL.
Keep up the awesome work Bruce
