I was diagnosed with Alopecia when I was 13 and was completely bald by the age of 19.  I am a fan of my own bald head.  Let me know if you would be willing to answer some questions for me for an art project.  I teach at an art college and my students are working with the theme ADVOCACY.  I am doing the project with them and have chosen "Alopecia" as my "content/ cause".  My intent is to either raise awareness and/or create some sort of tool that would help bald women and men be bald in public (if it was something they wanted but could not quite yet find the courage).  I need responses from two different people (as this was the homework I gave my students).  It would be a huge help if you could offer your responses.

Much love to all of you,


1) About how long ago were you diagnosed with Alopecia and about how long has your hair loss been noticeable? 
2) Have you ever been bald in public? If so, what gave you the courage to leave your home bald? 
3) If you have not been bald in public...what would give you the confidence to do so? These answers may be unachievable (controlling public reactions, etc.).

***Your participation would be completely anonymous.  Answers will be shared with a group of 16 women at an all women's art school.  Many of whom are impressed daily that I am bald in public everyday.

Hi, Lynn:

1. Was diagnosed originally in June 2001 with AA. Hair loss spots grew back with steroid injections and no further loss until Nov 2016 - when I lost every hair on my body (AU) in a couple of weeks. However, hair had been thinning for decades from thyroid issues.

2. No, and I wouldn't. I'm 67 and was raised in the "proper" 50s & 60s of always looking your best. Alas, I get the scalp acne, also have granuloma and vitilago, so wouldn't want to subject someone to looking at a not so good looking bald head.

3. I might go bald if I were 3 or 4 decades younger with nothing else going on with my scalp.


1- I was diagnosed with Alopecia at 19, and my hair was completely gone until I was 21. 

2- I was and I still am. The reading of different articles, especially at https://ukessay.com/help-with-dissertation-writing encouraged me to be proud of myself, and to not be ashamed of my baldness. Reading other peoples stories, different studies helped me feel confident while going to university. And when I faced this problem it stopped being a problem to me and to my all friends.


I am happy to help. However, as I never have been bald. I would love to create more awareness too, for alopecia and holistic healing. I cured/healed myself, YES my alopecia is in remission and I have clients who also go through the same thing- they too get results. I am wanting to spread the word that people don't need to rely on medications that do more harm than good... that healing naturally from the inside out is the best choice as there are no side effects, and you get to the root cause! Would you want to collaborate on both subjects and topics together?
