Why The World Needs A Bald Princess

Once upon a time, fairytale princesses all looked the same. They were thin despite eating all of those rich castle feasts. They had long flowing hair, big almond-shaped eyes and fair skin. They had full, pouty lips and they never had smudged makeup or bad hair days. The only difference between any of the…

Xeljanz XR

Today is my first day to try Xeljanz XR. I will try and blog about my experiences to hopefully help others. About me, I'm mid 30's married with a young child. Lost my hair all over (Universalis) twice in my lifetime, this being the second. The first was when I was 11 years old. Miraculously it all grew back after 3 years of no hair except my arms and most of my legs which I did not complain about one bit. I was pretty much alopecia free for over 20 years and NEVER thought it would happen…

My introduction to Alopecia Universalis


I have had Alopecia for about half a year now, and am still not sure how to feel about it. I am also not used to blogging. I have however been wondering how others experience the disease, and due to this decided to put my short experience with it up here for others to compare with.

I am 46 years old and have always had lots of thick hair. During the summer 2016, my wife commented that i was loosing more hair than usual, and I too noticed the thinning of my hair. At…

Figuring out what being twenty-four is all about

Hi, all!

I am new to this.. blog posting that is and I thought this would help not only myself after 10 years of knowing I have Alopecia, understand it, but others as well. I was told about having Alopecia in Middle School, for me it started out as small quarter size spots on the top of my head. I began to clip my hair back to hide them and soon after started seeing my dermatologist to seek treatment. Treating small three spots is easy... applying my topical treatment daily…

First time someone asked me "is that a wig" while chilling in a pub
A stanger non the less
And it made me upset more then it should and instead of standing up saying I have alopecia and explaining, I was just sat there embarrassed thinking OMG it looks like a wig
First time ever been asked and feel a bit rubbish and upset. Near left the bar but thought why should I.
The wig does not define me

I generally feel lucky at the moment.

I've had alopecia all my life. I've had wigs for about 14 years. Looking back at some shocking styles..

Yes there are days it bugs me having a wig esp when the thing won't sit right, that I get fed up with it. I want to change it. One horrific moment it blew off in a busy city and my boyfriend shouted like it was my fault lol I laugh now as I understand he was just embarrassed as I was :)

I've been experimenting with drawing on… Continue

My daily routine

Hey Alopecia World,

I'm new to this whole blogging thing and figured I'd start by descibing my daily routine.

I tend to wake up about 45 minutes before my husband, which gives me time to shower and do my makeup before he wakes up.  Applying fake lashes and drawing on my eyebrows takes time, but I always feel more complete with it on.  I love putting on my wig each morning-- that's what completes me.  I have a few for different occasions, but all are HH and custom-made.  It's…

Hi guys!

Really nice to meet you all)) My name is Dasha and I first had AA when I was 11. It was closer to AU. I lived in Ukraine back then and of course docs didn't know what the alopecia means or how to treat it. So I tried  (literally) every possible treatment. Long story short I wore wig for 3 years in school. That was depressing. Since I'm from a small town and kids can be really mean to someone who is different.  

After 3 years my hair just started to grow back. Not sure…

Is it okay mixing essential oils, steroids, and Rogaine?

I just was curious if anyone had any knowledge about mixing the three of these treatments. I want to use lemongrass essential oil, but I also use a topical steroid and Rogaine treatments consistently. Does any one know if I should not try all three at once? Or if it doesn't matter because they won't affect each other? I am constantly left in this dilemma. Looking for answers.

Thank you

Trying to come to terms with my alopecia

Hi, everyone.

I'm new to this website but I should have been on here a while ago. I am 22 years old, and I was diagnosed with a diffuse form of Alopecia Areata in August of 2015. I am writing because I just need support from others who have gone through, or going through what I am . No one around me understands what I am going through (and I don't blame them), but it is extremely difficult to get through it and talk about it with people who don't understand. My goal is to come to…
