It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
I always try to imagine the person I'd be if my hair hadn't fallen out. I know that this changed me. For good or for bad? I don't know.. I have no idea how I would have been if I never lost it.. and still I don't have much of an idea of who I am living with it for 7 years. I wish I knew.
As time goes on and on, fall starts once again,
for some people fun times just keep going on
for others less fortunate, it’s cold coming on
for the rest of the world, living it’s not a game!
Leaves will fall again, leaving trees naked to the eyes
grass will change its color from green to gray
just to mix together with trees to blend as one big grave
it will force us come to rest and close our…

It's been just over 5 years since I accepted my alopecia and stopped hiding beneath a wig. In that time I've met and married my gorgeous husband, had our 3rd child, completed post grad qualification in HR, been promoted and had so many memorable experiences.
I can honestly say that none of this would have been possible if I'd been wearing that wig still because for that whole time, I wasn't myself. Everything I did was hindered by baldness and a fear of being teased! I look back at my…Continue
I have had small blonde hairs growing at the front of my head for about a month now. They are becoming longer as the days/weeks past. But they aren't all over my head. I am completely bald from head to toe. My eyelashes and eyebrows have the same happening.
Is this a good sign that the hair is going to be growing back ? Or does it mean something else.
I dont want to get my hopes up.
Also I bought a new wig in Russia. Made in Germany from indian hair. About $800. terrible in compare with europian hair wigs. will never recommend. It is better to spend double more money but buy european hair wigs.
While visiting Russia this summer I went to a doctor of medicine in Moscow.
She prescribed me to take hormone Diprospan and some pills to reduce side effects.
Now after 1 month I have full head (and not only head) of new hair growing!
It's really exiting. I hope my new hair will stick for long time...
Just wondering if there are any Canadians out there I can connect with. I live in a remote part of Canada and just looking for people close to home.
I hope everyone is having a happy, positive day! Sending you all love
Going to visit the HIS Hair Clinic in New York this next Wednesday the 17th for my first scalp micropigmentation.

I was just recently diagnosed with Alopecia and it has been absolutely devastating to me. I feel like I have no control over what's happening so we just have to pick up the pieces and keeping moving forward.
I just wonder, what are the best wigs to order. I have ordered lace front and monofilament caps but I find the lace so itchy and uncomfortable. I usually order heat friendly synthetic hair. Does anyone have any websites they could share with me? I just want to…Continue
When a local, low-cost basement hairdresser on my street noticed the quarter-sized bald spot, I was about 10. I pulled my long hair back over the spot, so no one ever knew in 5th grade.
When alopecia reared up again my sophomore year in high school, I got a fall (half wig), and again pulled hair from the forehead back over the matching wig, and secured my hair onto the fall with a large barrette. Large bobby pins held my fall onto my real hair, twisted underneath. No one knew. I did…Continue
I really don't know how I want to present myself at the moment. This summer I was going to work bare headed and feeling pretty positive about myself, seeing my alopecia as a quirky part of me. But now I am drawn towards my wigs again. I've been looking a lot at the dolly and Japanese Kawaii style today as I love this style and I want to present myself like that. yet at the same time I feel like a fake or that I'm not being true to myself with all that make up and wigs etc. I just feel…Continue
I don't want to spend more than $400. But I want a nice wig with a silk top. Any advice?

Can't believe it's been exactly three years now since I discovered the first bald patch on my head after a haircut.
It's been a roller coaster ride.. I was in Bangalore that time, and the patches quickly grew into 6-7 places on my scalp.. I had a 3 month regimen of painful injections, and steroid tablets which led to almost 90% regrowth but patches just kept coming up here and there..
Never have I been totally alopecia free these 3 years.. although there were times when it was…Continue

So I'm at work and a haircut walks through the door. It's my turn and I go up front to greet them and take down there name and the women says to me, "Do you do little boys haircuts." I say back, "Yes, what's his name." So that I can write it down. She looks me right in the face and says, "I will wait for the next stylist. I think you might scare him." My manager went into protection mode to stand up for me. She asked, "What about her do you think he would be scared of?Her bald head?" The…Continue
Well even though I don't know anyone on here, this is the 1st time I'm formally coming out and saying I have alopecia. I'm just SO FRUSTRATED. I noticed a bald spot September 2013, quarter sized kind of at the lower part of my head. Of course I freaked out I'm 23 years old engaged and have long curly hair. I immediately knew what it was. I went to school with someone who had/has AU. He's my inspiration because for the last 5+ years he has had all of his hair! Anyway I noticed a small bald…Continue
