Hi Judy, bit of late reply as I only come on here when i'm shedding hair. I'm a Wellingtonian (Porirua), 25 male. I have Areata, so lose patches of hair, eyebrows, some body hair but have most of it at the moment

Hi - I have just joined the New Zealand Alopecians Group albeit I have been a member of  Alopecia World for some time.  I lost all my hair (Alopecia Universalis) in 2008 over the course of a couple of months.  Every now and then I get little bits come back and at the moment I have eyelashes, which is a very strange feeling.

I am a Wellington lass and would like to know if there are any bods out there in the Wellington/Hutt area with the same condition.

I wear wigs for the most part, which I got from the government assistance and I have to say the lady that makes them (in Lower Hutt opposite Waterloo Railway Station) does an excellent job.  Especially the latest one I got last year for my daughter's wedding.

My aim is to be bold, and go to the shops without a wig.  I wear a scarf if it is really hot or a bandana when I go to the gym.

Would love to hear from someone local.

Happy new year to everyone.

Are the cheaper wigs on Direct wigs comfortable to wear?

Thanks Sophie, I'll check Direct Wigs out. :)

Hey livvy I get my wigs from direct wigs which is in the UK. They're awesome to deal with and I'm really badly with my wig I got from there. I got one online from prowigsau and they were terrible.
