Another perspective

Just a thought to share with fellow Hairloss sufferers. I aiming this post mainly at those of you who are struggling to come to terms with your Hairloss. Maybe it's just happened suddenly... You're in shock, as expected. Maybe you lost your hair many years ago or it has progressively worsened as time has past and you simply cannot come to terms with your condition. Hairloss is so upsetting and knocks your confidence especially when you haven't got the answers... Why has this happened to me? How… Continue

Thinking about wearing wigs?

Wow purchased a 100% hand tied equal lace font unit. I have worn other lace front units over the last three four years which I've loved and received so many compliments. I used to have 'big hair' so I choose the 'big' hair styles of wigs, of course I've had to build up to big hair so not to arouse suspicion....Just tried and I am blown away buy the amazing look and feel of the unit. I'm delighted with how confident I feel wearing wigs. If your considering a wig certainly give it a go. I'm so… Continue

God can heal alopecia

A lot of people seem to think that God brings sickness upon people or He uses it as a punishment if you do something wrong but this is not the case. God LOVES us soooo much, He wants us to be healthy and well, and He wants to have a relationship with us and fellowship with us! it is satan who brings sickness upon people because his goal is to steal, kill and destroy (JOHN 10:10).The devil wants to take us out and he uses anything he can to do so including sickness. Alopecia and every other…

12 year anniversary

Today marks 12 years from the day that I found my first bald spot. I distinctly remember being 14 and my mother was blowdrying my hair when she found the dime sized patch.

A year followed of doctor's dismissals, then creams, then cortisone injections before I quit all treatments. By Nov 27 the following year I was nearly bald and began wearing a wig within a month. I was completely bald all over within the new year.

I have never had regrowth beyond maybe a tiny patch that lasts…

Why so much emphasis on hair and not other style changes?

Every winter I change my hair extensions out and wear a wig. With my puny hair, I feel it is best to give it a rest from extensions, and also at the ranch my own hair with extensions does not hold well in the wind and rain.

I love my wigs, but every year it is the same process of getting used to the comments others make about my new hair. Some people are very kind, others not so much. I have learned from past experience that this goes with the territory.

I can't help but wonder why…

Tattoos and alopecia

Hey guys, I would like to know if there is any problem doing tattoos if you have alopecia, due to the fact that it is an autoimmune disease.

FFA

Hello Celia, thank you for your support. I'm not Spanish, but I'm Portuguese.
I know of cases of FFA in Portugal or Spain.
There are no blogs or websites Portuguese about this disease. What I know about the FFA, was through a dermatologist and through Brazilian websites.
Sorry my English.

Thaddeus Stevens had alopecia! (Movie: LINCOLN)

Interview: Tommy Lee Jones of 'Lincoln'

'Language is life's blood for actors ...'

By James Rocchi

As Thaddeus Stevens, Tommy Lee Jones' rich voice gets to boom out the principles of equality and also utter, with quiet conviction, of the human needs and feelings that make equality necessary. He's a scene-stealer, in Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," but he's also portraying a figure of American history whose record of leadership, moral courage and eloquent verbal feuding should…

New to this site.

Just discovered this site and decided to join. I am a 56 yr old male and lost my hair 4 yrs ago when my Dad died. I tried all the injections and acid treatments and steroids with obviously no effects. The good thing about the alopecia is that when I got it I was depressed about losing my Dad and during this time I quit doing the things I loved and got heavy and depressed. One day when getting out of the shower I looked in the mirror and saw a fat, bald guy and I got pissed. I thought I can't…
