To light hair I go!

All these years, I have worn dark colors from reds mixed with dark brown to black. I have never worn something so light! Honestly, I really don't like it! It's a very pretty wig, but I just don't feel good about. I am now stuck wearing it till it either falls apart or turns turn frizz.

My husband says it looks great! I feel it was to make me feel better. It wasn't the oh WOW factor with him. I look at it and I'm like"hmmm" makes me look older. Lexi was mom it's looks good and I…

Has anyone ever dyed a monfilament human hair wig? HELP PLEASE!

Hello everyone!  I have AU and have been wearing a human hair wig from the Impressions Human Hair collection. (Venice/Venezia).  It's been great to me, I've been wearing it for over a year and it still looks great.  However the color is fading and now looks like a strawberry blonde.  I need advice coloring it.  Since it's human hair I was going to use a semi permanent dye but I'm really afraid of staining the monofilament.  I want to go from the orangey blonde to a dark brown (my…

Hair is growing

My Son Lost all his hair at 2 1/2 years old. Now he is 12.

Up until November 2013, he had little to no hair. That all changed a month later. In December 2013, His hair has started to grow back. He has regained about a 1/3rd of the hair back, with lots of new ones coming in.

Would anyone know what triggers a regrowth? I would like to help him grow even more hair back. Its a very confusing condition.

He is not taking any medication, so that is not a factor.

NAAF notice going to alopecians

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has announced alopecia areata  is one of just 16 candidates for consideration in the Patient-Focused Drug Development initiative (PFDDI) for FY2016-FY2017. This is due to the hard work of our Legislation Liaisons making FDA involvement a  priority when meeting with their representatives and senators.

Now you can help make sure alopecia areata is one of the diseases  selected by telling your story!

I have been on Xeljanz for 2 1/2 months 5 mg 2X daily and just last week I got about 7 white, baby fine "vellus" hairs right on top of my head and many, many of the same hairs on my face !! Like forehead, cheeks, etc. I never had hair on my face before just above my upper lip that I would pluck. Thankfully, it is light. There are no other hairs anywhere else right now but I am hoping for more. I just wonder if "vellus" hair always means you will get "terminal" hair with pigmentation? ..

Embracing alopecia

In the last few months I have gone from, barely any alopecia patches to barely any hair. Thru this time frame, I've experienced a mix of back & forth emotions between embracing it and hating it. But thru it all it has been so inspiring to see so many of you, confidently sharing your experiences. Thank you to all of you who have been brave enough to be open about your alopecia, you have all helped me to get to the point where I am now. Happy enough to love the situation I am in, hair or…

I wish

I wish I could go to the salon and get my hair high lighted and walk out feeling awesome, like I used to.

I wish I could wash my hair with the super expensive shampoo and conditioner that smelled awesome, that made my hair feel great.

I wish I could tie my hair up in a pony tail, instead of tying my bandana over my hairless head.

I wish I didn't have to pretend to be ok with losing my hair, to make people comfortable.

I wish my "courage/strength" wasn't based on…

Hair growth

A few months ago I wrote a blog saying that I went to an endocrinologist for my alopecia because I was at a loss( i had gone to a dermatologist for months and gotten injections, to no avail) The dermatologist did blood work but they failed to check my hormone levels( they basically checked my iron levels, just protocol). I also went to a regular doctor and got blood work there and they did not see anything out of the ordinary. My endocrinologist on the other h
