for the first time audrey has lost all her hair except 1%. we took her wig od and everything just fell off, her hair had been comming in, she's fine except my youngest was so shocked seh ran arounf the house screaming, i couldnt help but cry, but i know god has already healed her.christ paid the price on the cross and alopecia has no place in this world, so now im praying more for every one with alopecia, not just my duaghter.

Hi, My name's JOSH. Continue
I just want to start by saying this website truly is wonderful. I don't know why I never joined Alopeciaworld.com before. It's like Facebook or Myspace for bald people! (only I think this is a little cooler) I've been a member for less than 24 hours and many of you (whom I have never met) have welcomed me, and I can't tell you how much that means. The close-knit community that alopeciaworld seems to promote is very cool and once again I'd like to state how much…

Every day, no matter how many years go by....it's the Cliche (over used expression) which becomes nonsensical. I shrug it off in revolt these days....."hmmmmmm"
My own quietness, observation of ignorance and awareness, is to the nth degree. When all the while, deep within the psyche of their intellectual perception, they're so busy judging our external facade.
After all...if it's what's on the inside that counts......then why are they… Continue

As of Wednesday last week I have ditched the wig and am wearing my bald head with pride. So far the response has been great. All was revealled at work fo the first time on Monday and everyone couldn't believe it but then said how much better and more confident I look!
Walking in to my local shop, meeting my friends at the pub, playing hockey, anythng - I'm not bothered about people seeing the real me - Best decision I ever made!

Hey all: It occured to me that a famous bear, second only to Smokey T. Bear, may have been an Alopecian. His name was Fuzzy Wuzzy. Does anyone know what he's doing these days?

I recently started working again as a Night Auditor for a swanky boutique hotel in downtown Nashville, and based on past experience when I went to my interview I brought my "alopecia essentials" kit: a letter from my dermatologist explaining my need to wear wigs, hats, and scarves; a printed copy of the Americans with Disabilities Act; and a business card with my lawyer's name and phone number, and my godmother's name and phone number (she works for the EEOC.) My boss was very pleasant during… Continue

I had AA for 7 years, then I progressed to AT - no scalp hair, but everything else still there. Then, it quickly went to AU. In the past few months, I've started growing hair again, but ONLY on my face. I have eyebrow patches, lashes in the center of my upper eyelids, nose hair, and peach fuzz in places on my cheeks and chin. But, there's not a single, tiny hair anywhere else on my scalp or body.
So, I think that there needs to be a name for when you have hair only from your eyebrows… Continue

Hello, I had my first hair cut sense finding my first patch in feb this year.
It was a spur of the moment decision. My patches are growing back and I have new re-growth all over, so it was really good to get it tided up. I was very nervous at first as you can still see the patches (even though there is re-growth) and was nervous all thru the hair cut, but Im very happy i did it :0)

I hope that this information will be helpful. I had aa once 14 years ago. I had a couple of small patches on the back of my head, I got the cortisone shots and it went away within a year. 2 months ago I noticed a patch on the side of my head. I went to get the shots but they weren't stopping the hair from falling out. Everyone kept telling me to relax and that stress probably caused this. But I didn't feel stressed out and that just didn't ring true to me. My hair falling out is… Continue

Visited with a new Derm yesterday here in CA. I didn’t technically go to see him for my Alopecia – I went to discuss my extremely dry, itchy, cracked palm on my right hand. He told me that I had Keratosis Palmaris, gave me a steroid shot and prescribed me some ointment. He advised me that although they weren’t connected in anyway, the meds may also help the Alopecia.
Naturally, I’ve been reading all I can online and have found a link between this and Alopecia called… Continue

As some of you may know, I got a hair transplant 2 months ago. I am curious about those who have Alopecia. I came here for support on my hair loss and know you all support male pattern baldness. I know that hair transplants don't work for you all but if it did, would you consider getting one?

Working the horrible 11am-9pm shift today. Clearly not busy, hence me blogging at work. I think i have made a total of $8 so far...which will pay for my lunch! Hopefully the dinner shift is better. Boss just walked by, hopefully i don't get in trouble for being on my computer. But what else is there to do!? Time for lunch. Salad with grilled chicken, blue cheese, dried cranberries, and onions. Yuuuuum.
