Christine replied to holyhairlossbatman!!'s discussion Eyebrow loss? Half an eyebrow loss? Where is the rest of that eyebrow and is this common?
"I have the same thing as you! I have my right eyebrow and only have of my left. It seems to come and go as it pleases. Now I have a bit of regrowth on my head, but the brow is still missing. What a strange thing alopecia is."

"I have the same problem that you do! I usually just give my wig a spray of perfume after it's been washed... the synthetic conditioner I have smells like fish. Bleh!"

About Me:
It's been a while since I updated this thing - time for a new profile!

My name is Christine and I'm 24 years old. I'm currently an accountant studying to be a chartered accountant. I pretty much work 40 hours a week then come home and study for another 15. It's pretty sweet.

I developed alopecia in 2008 and shaved my head in 2009. It was the best thing I could have done. I've been wearing wigs since 2009 and I love them. I buy mine online for cheap ($70) and change them up whenever I feel like I need a new hairstyle. I have over 15 different wigs in many different colors.

I'm currently NOT undergoing any treatment, but will be trying out acupuncture in the new year as I have never tried this before. I am a HUGE advocate of not treating the symptoms of alopecia but rather trying to find the internal cause of it. I have accepted my alopecia and love myself without my hair and I have found this to be the best treatment. My eyelashes and eyebrows fell out last year but they have grown back! I have never appreciated my eyelashes so much!!

I don't come on here often as I have dealt with my alopecia and don't really think about it anymore. I just get on with my life.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia totalis
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older

Bald at last!

Here's something interesting... before I shaved my head, I had thought that the moment that I finally did it, I would come scurrying over to Alopecia World and post pictures and try to get support from everyone. But something strange happened... I found I didn't need the support.



With the advice of my mom, I did the head shave in steps. First, I got my mom to cut off my pony tail (I saved it so I could match my wig to it) and lived with that short hair for a week or so. I went to… Continue

Wigs for strenuous exercise?

Posted on January 2, 2009 at 12:39am 5 Comments

My life has been finally calm and I have been using the time to just relax. University is done until my exchange and I passed all of my classes. The other day I took a huge leap and cut off my 30cm long pony tail of hair. I'm saving it to see what wig color will match best. So right now I have a really funny haircut... as all my mom did was cut the pony tail off from the highest part of my head.



But I have a real dilemma... I play soccer competitively and I do not know how to cover… Continue

This wig is Jon Renau's heat defiant called "Spicy". I really like it but am waiting to get my Freedom in June. This is my first long wig and with it comes the tangling and matting up underneath in the back. Otherwise, I love having long hair again!!
