It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
Hi, I am based in London and am now looking to wear a wig. I cannot stand to see my sorry face in the mirror anymore without hair. Have looked at wigs before in various shops, but have left in tears. Anyone who knows of a good wig shop or supplier, I would love to hear from you.
Hi there beautiful people!
My testimony with alopecia and maybe how this going to help you. First of all I’ve been suffering from alopecia, one third of my life. I know how hard it is to deal with it, and I want this to stop just like you. They say it’s is incurable but sending people into space. We cannot wait for them to come up with a cure. If they does it’s okay, but ‘m not going to wait for that.
I feel a great responsibility helping those who are also suffering from this…Continue
Been struggling with AA for twenty years. For me it never ever quite went away. It would move around the back of my head away from my direct view where it’s easier for me to ignore. Once in a while I’d get energized and want to fight it, so I’d start a cortisone and Minoxidil treatment course where for a few months I’d get shots every six weeks. No significant improvement happens, and I’d start fretting over the impact of all the cortisone and so I’d eventually give up and stop the treatment…Continue

my almost 5 year relationship hurts me because I am always to hurt.
its so hard to let someone love you when you don't love yourself.
i don't know what hurts more.
losing someone you love because of this
loving someone who let you lose yourself.

I've been seeing a psychiatrist for the past few weeks because I felt like I just had too. My anxiety picked up sometime last month, it became a physical thing to me & it's not always about my alopecia (so I think). Lately I've been getting anxious in my dreams, hearing my troubled thoughts as I sleep so when I wake up I'm still anxious and being anxious is all I could think about.
I understand its an internal thing, my subconsious, my stresses and worries, dreams of suicide,…Continue

I have had alopecia universalis for over a year now. My hair did grow back but it fell again.
My earlier medication consisted of betason ( steroid) tablets, tenovate cream and protopic ointment.I also do occlusive phototherapy.
As the improvement is very less, my doctor now suggested I try kenacort injections 40mg once for 3 months.
Thoughts on the injection?

I have alopecia universalis.
I wanted to know if drinking (i.e., the consumption) of alcohol on a regular basis prevents recovery. I couldn't find any definite answers online as to whether it makes the hair fall out or not.
Please do reply.

According to an interview with Vulture that I found on Bet.com, actress Viola Davis struggles with alopecia.
Many have noted that there seems to be an error in the article: The fact that stress does not cause alopecia, but may trigger it.
I got AA 9 years back. It slowly developed into AU. I tried many doctors, many treatments and nothing worked. I started accepting my condition after joining this group and learned to live with it, which is a good thing. At the same time, I was starting to give up hope.
Two years back, I thought I'll try my last shot with Dr.Richard Strick. At first I was skeptical with the treatment. I have tried a similar one where the cream irritates the scalp and triggers…Continue
Has anyone had experience with fat cells harvested from your own body and injected into your scalp to arrest and promote hair growth?
I'm going for an interview Tuesday to see if I'm eligible to join this particular study. The study is in NYC.
Everyone keeps telling me to be positive. It will be fine. Don't worry.
But what if doesn't get better? I can't wear a wig for the rest of my life.
I'll explain more on my situation in the next post.
It feels good to find other people going through the same thing!
Well, same story as last time as it is every time. It was the second week before Christmas. I ran my hand through my hair and there it is. The size of a dime, it grew and then 3 weeks later right after the new year, there was now 2. One larger than the other, like siblings. One trying to out do the other - then at the wonderful size of Almost Silver Dollars, I find a third sibling hiding at the back of my head......
Same as the other two- about the size of a dime - then the hair loss…Continue
My level of acceptance toward the general ineptitude of my white blood cells is as inconsistent as my motivation to study.
More often than not, I could not give a fraction of a shit that my hair is basically absent. My reasoning there is mostly along the lines of "What would be different if I had it anyway?"
Looking pretty? Where does that get me? Friends? No. A job? No. A date? Maybe, but that's really not a priority at the moment due to my innate lack of skills in that…Continue
