Have you thought about a vacuum wig??? I have worn one for over 20 years. I can go down a waterslide (KINGS ISLAND), swim, boating. I never worry about it coming off.
I will be in OHIO next month. Let me know if I can help.

Hi Ann! Welcome. Your hair loss pattern looks alot like mine. I have that huge circular bald spot at the crown and the hair just grows around the edges, but it's very thin. Anyway, I couldn't bring myself to shave my head when I first started wearing a wig. I used a wig liner and wrapped/pinned my hair up before I put the liner on. After several years I got tired of dealing with the hair and liner so I cut my hair really short first, then shaved my head a couple of months later. I find it so much more comfortable with my head shaved - much cooler. Just take your time and do what feels right. Stay strong.

Thanks for your note about my cat Zsa Zsa! She is an indoor only cat; cats live longer indoors. I lost my soul-mate cat, Clifford, when he was hit by a car at only 7 years old. I just about died myself. When I looked back, I realized that most of my cats who were indoor and outdoor, lived only half as long as their normal lifespan so I decided not to allow any more cats outside. Of course, you have to be sure they have entertainment! But to me it's worth it...

I told my family... friends, and anyone who wants to know in my life that I have Alopecia and I got this back... and I thought my fellow prisoners of Hair would apreciate it!

Lol, as if you need hair to be beautiful. You were, you are, you will be.

So shave it off with defiance, as if you were overthrowing the repressive Hair government whose power seat rests atop your crown!

Storm the castle gates with torches and pitchforks, letting… Continue

Getting ready for the day!

Today i feel like just sleeping all day! I hate getting up taking a shower and running my hands through my hair and coming out with clumps upon clumps of hair falling out! I can't comb my hair or else it just rips out! I also can't really do anything else with my hair but wear it up in a pony tail and put a thick head band on. Sometimes when I am talking to people in class or in public i see there eyes wandering up (or down cuz im really short) to my head and i can tell what they are looking… Continue
