Hi Everyone. It has been one year this month since I first lost all my hair and posted on Alopecia World.

I am happy to say it is growing back in. I still have a few small bald spots and the new hair growth is baby fine.But I will take what I can get.

I do want to say thank you to everyone on this sight for the support, it has really helped me cope.I did not feel so alone!!!!.…

Well at least you will save money not having hair...NOT!

I am sure you all have heard this comment by someone trying to get us Alopecians to see the bright side of not having hair. Well I dont know about the rest of you but this has been very expensive for me.

I was only diagnosed 4 months ago and lost my hair rather rapidly. I went from buying every scarf & hat i could find to hide the bald spots on the top of my head, only to find in a matter of weeks I needed a full wig.

I buy hats, scarfs,glues, combs, full wigs, halo wigs…

It has been almost 2 months now and I have had so much hair loss that I shaved it all off last night.I thougt I was fine with it but once I started that first pass through my hair with the clippers ,I did get a little emotional.I quickly recovered and knew I was doing the right thing!

For the most part I have been handeling my hair loss pretty well, although I do still have my good and bad days. I still do the why me.I even get up in the morning and look at my wig and think "I hate…

Hair loss week three

Well I am three weeks into loosing my hair. I have Alopecia areata I think maybe I have lost over 50% with most of the patches on the back of my head a very top. I am unable to hide it anymore so I have been wearing a wig.And yes I feel so self concious in it. Yeterday it was windy so I had to worry and wonder if if was going to blow off. Luckily it did not.

I dont understand this whole alopecia areata, I thought you only loose patches. A few more weeks of this I will have very little…

Klo, are you still wearing the Fortune wig sometime?  Even if you aren't, how long WERE you wearing it, and how did it hold up?  I am considering ordering something HH and just have so many concerns.....Does it tangle?  Is it hot?  Easy to wash and care for?  Thanks so very much.  Merry Christmas to you !!  Glad you are having regrowth.  Hope it continues.

Halo...that explains why you can have a baseball cap on!! The premium is really pretty. Thanks for the reply. I will have to look at the prices for Halo's. I seem to remember they are pretty costly, so at that price, why not get a full wig...but then, the why not, is, you cannot wear a hat!

Hello....I like all of your wigs!! Do tell which ones are which by picture # please? The blonde seems a good color. So hard to find. I like the one under the baseball cap. Here in sunny FL. I need to wear a hat or cap, but I have yet to find a wig that accomodates any type of hat. I like the way your wigs seem flatter on the top. Are they? Did you get them thinned out? I have a small head, and most wigs are too poufy on the top for such a small face and head that I have. I am also tired of bangs on wigs. If you try to trim them, you end up ruining the wig, at least my experience has been that.

Hi KLO,

HI KLO!

I think it would be in your best interest to find another doctor that is willing to treat you for your hashimotos. You see, my thyroid kept testing normal and when I finally got referred to an endroconologist she discovered that my antibodies were sky high like yours. She has been treating my hashimotos with Synthroid 100 mcg. My alopecia has slowed down but I am never without a spot or two. Some times they get very, very big... like the one on the back of my head right now... My alopecia is treated with steriod shots every 6 to 8 weeks. I know and understand too well the question, "why me?" ... I have researched to no end for a cure "for me" meaning everyone is different and responds differently to treatmens as you know full well being a nurse and have yet to find the answer. I refust to give up, however. It is very frustrating to say the least! Now when I discover a new spot, instead of getting angry at the good Lord, I thank him for placement of the spot! This site is excellent for support... find a different doctor that will treat your extreme antibodies! Keep in touch! I care... we all care!
