"I totally agree as to asthetics. When I hit about 30% hair left on my head, I shaved it so it would be easier to manage. I haven't had any hair growth in the few scalp haur I had left, so haven't even had to shave my scalp in about a…"

"Don't understand what you're asking. The word forever was not used. However, if Xeljanz only grows hair as long as it is taken, and one wants to keep their hair for the rest of their life, then xeljanz must be taken…"

I too grew up in the 50's and 60's and I hardly ever read of anyone getting Alopecia when they are middle aged. While I found my first spot last August, it got bigger. Only I could see it unless I pulled my hair back. More spots came and hair grew back. Again I am losing hair, but no one can see but me and my hair stylist. I commend all the people that have self acceptance but I wonder if the older you are at the time of the fist occurrence the more self conscious you are.
