Bald

So.... Had a very severe bout of hair loss. Couldn't hide the bald spots. With the support of my husband, daughters and great friends, I shaved it all off. Very freeing! My husband says I look sexy, my daughters love it. I feel supported. I have gone out to dinner and shows without a wig or any head covering. Since I live n Arizona, I have lots of hats too. Having fun with eye makeup.

Organic 99% sulfur and hair growth

I've been taking organic sulfur for 2 months , a teaspoon a day and my eye lashes are growing back. Sulphur also helps phase 2 liver detox, so is good for getting estrogen and other steroid hormones out of the body faster, as well as toxic metabolites sitting around from phase 1 liver detox. I've never seen anyone whose phase 2 was as fast as their phase 1, have you? I think everyone can benefit…

Attachment to Suffering. Why did I have to be the one to lose my hair?

“To be free from suffering, free yourself from attachments.”

 

They say being attached can lead to suffering, but we can also be attached to our suffering.

 

Every person living now is going through some kind of suffering……

 

There is death, sickness, poverty, injustice, cruelty, judgements, projections, failures, and insecurities.

 

Sometimes it is easy to forget that other…

Eye lashes and facial hair are growing

Hi Friends ,
I have been gluten and dairy free for 6 mos. I also see a dermatologist every 2 weeks for a application of some type of medication to my scalp that forms a dermititis. I have. AU and my whole scalp looks like eczema.
I'm not sure if it's my new diet or treatment. But something is growing. Has anyone else had this experience?
Thank you ,
Suzana

Everything happens for a reason.

Here I am back on this site years later and I'm loving it ... 

I joined when I was around 14 years old and now I'm 18.

I was diagnosed with alopecia when I was just 4 years old. I decided to wear a wig when I was in 6th grade because I wanted to be like everyone else. Throughout the years I continued wearing them, although I didn't want to wear them any longer. It's hard you know, to just stop wearing wigs when everyone knows you as the girl with hair. But if I were to stop…

Wow, very interesting wig reveal

Hey y'all,

I was over at a friend's house with my husband the other night for dinner. I've known the couple, Amanda and her husband, for quite some time, but, before I go further, I think I should mention that when I met Amanda, she had this beautiful long blonde curly hair, but, for some reason, she decided to chop it off to a brunette bob.  I always thought this choice was strange.  Her blonde hair was so pretty, and her brunette bob, while not ugly, really wasn't as stunning and…

My story

I was just diagnosed about a month ago with A. Areata. It's so frustrating, I keep trying to see ways to improve this with nutrition, creams, meditation. I've read that it can be caused by stress and then on other sites it says it has no relevance. However about two months before this started I went through a tremendous stress at work. And I cannot help but think they are connected!

I just flew to Australia from Canada and came back a few days ago, while I was there I developed a painful… Continue

MICROBLADING

 Hi everyone ! I have been on this website for a couple of years . I was diagnosed with FFA several years ago - have undergone treatments of all sorts with cortisone sprays and a few different medications that none of which helped. I did lose all of my brows pretty much and so had the microblading done . It is a bit painful but I was very happy with the results. My only advice is to be sure to get good recommendations for the technician first. 

I have lost most of my body hair and I…

Alopecia & Other Diseases/Conditions?

Hello! This is my first post here, so I'm not sure if anyone will even see this content.. still trying to figure this site out.



Anyway, I was officially diagnosed with alopecia areata by a Dermotologist about two weeks ago. But I knew I had alopecia for at least 3 months. My fear is what kept me from scheduling an appointment, and now I see that is a mistake. I could have stopped a lot of my hair loss sooner.



My doctor was very quick with my appointment. He looked at my… Continue

Different Medication

I've had Alopecia Universalis for about 3 years now. My dermatologist had started to give me shots in my head, which I very shortly cut out of my visits with him due to the pain it gave me. He gave me methotrexate to see if that would help my immune system get more on track but as anyone with alopecia knows, it seems to be that we are all test rats for whatever meds to take. I also researched this more intense drug called Xeljanz. It was tested on a patient at Yale University who had…

Out of denial...

Thinking somehow when I got answers I would feel better. 1st group. 1st blog. Frustrated from writing an hour to comment on someone's blog only to LOSE everything I wrote. Tried to think of it as a purging not meant for others... But I feel so alone. Overwhelmed by all I've learned in last 72 hrs. But I am HERE. FEEL miserably physically but a hint of hope that I'll only be alone by choice now. And sometimes I need the solitude but find that to much time spent alone with my thoughts can be a…

Always Look At The Bright Side Of Life

Every day when we wake up, we have a choice. We can go into the day with a negative mind or a positive one. Did you know that it’s your choice? It’s true! Every day you have the power to wake up and choose the kind of day you will have.



Ok, I know what you’re thinking. What about those days where nothing goes your way. How do you look at that with a positive attitude? It’s simple. Shift your perspective. Perhaps you miss the school bus, but then that means I have to drive you. If we… Continue

Sometimes things aren't okay

I have never written a blog before so please, bare with me. 

When I was about 2 years old, I began losing patches of hair. My parents took me to doctors to determine the problem. It wasn't until I was 4, when all of my hair fell out (peach fuzz, eyelashes, eyebrows.. everything) that the doctor diagnosed me with Alopecia. From then on I was on a regimen of steroid drops to assist in hair growth. For a while, it worked. My mom and dad had such good attitudes about it so I couldn't help…
