Vancouver Alopecia Areata Support Group


Vancouver Alopecia Areata Support Group

Hello Vancouverites! Connecting is one of the best ways to feel happier and become more informed! Come as you are, whether you are shy or outgoing. This is a genuine and fun group where all of us - new to alopecia or experienced, hair-wearer or au natural, seeking treatment or not - all come together and be supportive, informative, and positive for one another. After 4+ years of running this group, I can say for sure that you'll feel better after a meetup! :)

Come to our monthly meetups, or, start by joining this group and be in the loop of upcoming meetups! Sometimes I include alopecia news / remedy / stories too.

If your kid / teen has alopecia, please contact us and we'll put you in touch with other parents! It'll be, I believe, quite awesome for your child :)

Upcoming Meetups

This group gets together monthly at one of the members' homes - a cozy, positive, and fun environment, for those with alopecia. We are here to support one another, and every meetup has been amazingly mood-lifting.

Join us here and we'll send next meeting details to you in a group email!

You can always get a hold of us via AW messaging or at alopecia.vancouver[at]

We are affiliated with CANAAF (Canadian Alopecia Areata Foundation).

Next meet up: We meet about once a month. Please email Tanya at the emil address above!

Dear All, let's do a meet up on the 2nd weekend of July? We can talk about all the cool things we did and experienced at NAAF :) I'm thinking July 11th. Please feel free to suggest a time preference!

Hello everybody.  I hope you are having a fantastic Summer.  The book, Head-On, Stories of Alopecia is finally done.  Check out my website to get more information about it, and to order.  Shipping costs are set up for within the states right now, but if you want to order one, I can bring yours up sometime in August for an alopecia meet-up if that works for you.  Thanks for your support everybody.

Dear All, an eyebrow tip from Shari!

 My eyebrow tattoos have faded to a greyish color.  I have had them re-done several times but  I just have not been able to obtain the nice light golden brown color I desire.

    I have to go on a business trip twice a year and share a room with my co-worker.  If it isn't weird enough to have a co-worker see you in your pjs and a sleep hat, I don't like when I wash off my makeup and my eyebrows look funny.

    I have tried several things to obtain a semi-permanent brown: body ink, transfer tattoos, and henna paste. I will just say those options did not work the way I wanted them to work.

    I had an idea and I bought some dark self tanner with the bronzer in it so you can see where you apply it.  I painted that right on my tattoo eyebrows (3 times the first day). After the first day and a shower I could see my eyebrow are a nice golden brown and did not wash off!  Now I just need to keep up on a minimal maintenance schedule.

  Then it occurred to me to use it where I brush on my brownish eyeshadow to create a natural contouring shading on my eyelid!  Yep, that worked too!

   Thought I'd share this for those of you who might have the same desire for a semi-permant fix.
