It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
When I was first diagnosed with Alopecia Areata a year ago, I had large patches of hair falling out randomly across my head. Since then, they have shrunk to smaller patches about the size of quarters not only on my head but across my face as well. I dyed my hair platinum blonde not only to hide the grey hair that grew back, but it also did a better job of hiding the missing hair, As it has grown out and the black roots have started to show, I have noticed that I no longer have circular…Continue

My son was 18 years old and a senior in High School when we noticed he was getting a dime size bald spot. We took him to a dermatologist who offered to do the shots in his head and he didnt want to do this so we said no. He is challenged and this was just one more thing in his long list of things to deal with. We went to one of his Neurology appts in Marshfield, WI and the dr looked and said "Yep he has Alopecia, give him Minerals" Because of his condition we do a lot of chiropractor…Continue

I was wondering do anyone has any system besides the hair lost dealiing with alopecia?
Hello, about 4 months ago i noticed my hair texture in the middle of my head had changed and when i brushed my hair a lot was falling out I had no idea what was going on but within 2 weeks i noticed a bald patch so i decided to see a doctor who diagnosed me with Alopecia Areata. I decided to go to a dermatologist last month who said i need monthly injections and to take biotin everyday. Within the last month my hair seems i've lost so much had that i decided to star wearing a lace front wig.…Continue
I live in Cumming Georgia North east of Atlanta I have been diagnoised with Alopecia as well recently. I am having an extreamly difficult time accepting this and the fact I will have to wear a wig the rest of my life. I have many factors that have contributed to this I have underlying MRSA that I got from Northside Hospital in Atl from a Rotator Cuff Surgery I had to be infused 7 days a week for 5 months , I almost died. Now that my immune system has been compromised , I am now anemic, B-12…Continue

I have struggled with alopecia areata my whole life, well since I was three. Now at 24 I feel that I have made peace with it and accept the uncertainty of my appearance. In the past few months I have developed totalis. Although I have accepted it and am trying to move on, my husband and 5 year old daughter do not know how to. My husband tries to be supportive and not affected by it, but he is and I can tell. It usually comes out in weird places, like critiques of my dressing, or his sudden…Continue
Im new to this site.. I have been diagnosed with alopecia for 4 months now. my whole side of my head is bald. I went thru a very stressful event in my life in November. Don't know for sure it that what caused it. My doctor put me on drithrocream. Didn't do anything, Now starting yesterday I am on prednisone. Sounds like it will work while you take it but fall out again. Has anyone taken it and kept their new hair growth?
Hello :) I'm Natasha, I'm 22 & have thinning hair and no confidence at all to go with it. I've had this problem since the age of 11 since my parents split and it's just got worse and worse and I don't have the confidence to see a doctor purely because I'm so frightened of getting judged as I was bullied at school about it and people stare in the streets, I walk around with my hood up because the only style I can have that makes it look a little bit normal is pulled back and it's worst in…Continue
Well...I guess I'll just dive right in. I have alopecia areata...its mostly at the nape of my neck and goes up to the back of my ears...so...I haven't been able to wear the hair I have left in a ponytail in years. I usually wear wigs, weaves and extensions to hide my condition. Maybe a handful of people know about it...my family and closest friends...and they usually forget because I've learned to hide it so well...
Im happy I found this community where I will…Continue
It seems like every year I go through this. I'm always looking for a new look, however, it never seems to happen because I'm too scared of the fact that I have absolutely no hair on in my temporal regions, and I barely have any hair on my nape. My friends always ask why I always have the same hairstyle. Or whenever we hang out they always touch each others hair, and I never let anyone touch mine. It's really embarrassing, because I get so defensive. -sighs- With the way things are now,…Continue
No matter what I do it never makes up for being bald to women.
Since the age of 16 I've been lifting weights, buying good clothes, tanning and generally working on my appearence because thats what puts girls my age off. It never makes a difference because of my bald head and im sick of it. I didnt win the genetic lotterylike a lot of people so im screwed.
I'm not happy like a lot of you.
I can't be positive like a lot of you.
NO HAPPINESS IS NOT A CHOICE LIKE SOME OF…Continue
After 10 years, this past weekend is the FIRST time that i have ever typed anything in about alopecia in on the search engine. I have accepted the fact that I don't have hair…and basically just lived with it. My mom has done research about it, but I haven't bothered to do so myself. In my mind if the less i knew about it, the more "normal" id feel. I was diagnosed in August of 2004. I had tiny spots sporadically on my scalp with one spot that was about the size of 2 quarters smack in the…Continue
I am in the process of writing my book. It is like a hair autobiography (with pictures). It is not a book about treatment. Although I had to chuckle while writing to keep from crying, I can feel the healing in the process. Has anyone else already did this or have a journal they have keep over the years?
I am a self-publish author of 4 "how to" books and a BlogTalk Radio host of 2 shows. But this is the first one that is personal. I feel some apprehension for actually putting it on…Continue
Has anyone ever used Biotin and if so what were the results?
This month, 5 years ago, marks the beginning of my journey into alopecia. It was a brutal month in which hair was falling out by handfuls, far too many tears were shed and a time in which I travelled down into the darkest place I didn't even know existed. It was brutal. The finality of the hair loss occurred that June in which I was left with not a hair on my body and hit bottom.
I revisited some of my posts during the beginning, and they are hard to read without tears and yet that…Continue
I don't want my hair to grow back and I know it sounds strange coming from someone who has had a head full of hair for 20 years. I was devastated when my alopecia really started kicking in. My hair started to regrow during my pregnancy. I have a partial left eyebrow, side burn, and hair in other places where I would rather it not be. I have grown to love my beautiful bald headed self. This is who I am now. I let go of trying to hold on to something that really doesn’t matter. Plus, I would…Continue
Before being diagnosed with Alopecia i had never heard of it, so now I'm sitting here wondering how many people actually know about Alopecia and what exactly it is. I have noticed that there are quite a few people in the world with Alopecia. so if there is quite a few, why is it not very well known about. I was told by my doctor that mine is caused from stress, if i had been told stressing a lot would cause my hair to fall out i most likely would have prevented myself from stressing as much…Continue
