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. Come to our monthly meetups, or start by joining this group to be posted of upcoming meetups!

If you want to talk to someone on the phone, posting on the wall here is a great way to start 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 :)

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.

Looking forward to seeing everybody this Sunday.  I haven't talked to Jana, but perhaps we could meet at her place and go over to Chris's together.  I'm happy to drive those coming from this direction too (Lea???).
