My first post

I am 38 Years old, I am from Hungary.

Unfortunately my English isn't so good, but it might develop.

Even now I need a little time to formulate in English what I want to say.

At the end of May 2014 almost all my hair fell out in about 10 days.

2 weeks later hair growth stopped elsewhere too, for example eyebrows, mustache, axillary, etc…

Only my legs and arms ar not  affected.

On my head there is a thin "baby hair" and elsewwhere is also a fine stubble but it…

Scared mom

I can't stop feeling sad and scared for my daughters hair loss. It has been 24 days since we noticed the first quarter sized spot on her scalp, since then her hair loss has been rapidly worsening. I'm heartbroken for my beautiful baby girl who is 13. I cry most of the day when I'm alone. She is doing better than me.

Wigs: Does it get easier? (Venting)

I've been wearing wigs almost everyday for just over 8 months now and I really hate them.  About two months after noticing the bald spots, I could no longer conceal them.  I went to a fancy shmancy wig shop a few hours away and the specialist suggested I get human hair wigs.  I figured if I am going to get a wig I better get the best looking one I can find.  I tired on several and they were fine but I didn't love any of them.  I've always loved my natural hair and thought it suited me well.…

Mohican

This regrowth phase I am going through, I keep being a little obsessed with. But looking in the mirror I seeing patches of clear growth and lots of what I call ghost white baby hair.

I just been thinking how I seem to be growing a bit of mohican hair, all on top none on sides, I see often the fashion of woman shaving the sides of the hair, and think to myself my body is trying to copy that.

I remind myself daily not to get excited, that it can go as quick as…

Will this pain ever end?

I've had alopecia since I was 11 years old. It started as a tiny bald spot, the size of a nickle, my mom had taken me to my family doctor and he start injections in my scalp. At first it wasn't too bad but my head would start to hurt a lot later. The bald spots finally went away on their own and it wasn't until a two years later they started again. At the age of 13 my dad had past away and I noticed another spot. The doctor told me it was from stress, I kept thinking to myself, I'm 13, what…
