I'm 19 and I have just found out i have AA. I am about half bald but it is all underneath so fortunately I have been able to cover it up until now. My hair is falling out above my ears so when i tuck my hair behind my ears it is becoming noticeable. I have also developed a small bald spot near my part up the top but for now, I can cover that too.
I think I have been every accepting of my hair loss because I have been able to cover it up but now, some of my hair has started to regrow and as weird as this sounds, i am pretty annoyed. I'm not sure if anyone understands but i am sick of being "half bald". I'm sick of "you cover it so well". I wish i either was bald...or not. So now as my hair regrowns partially at the back of my head, i continue to go bald up the sides of my head. I don't know what to do because I have been able to hide my alopecia but now i'm going to have random bald spots on top and be bald up the sides of my head. How do I know if i truley deserve/ need a wig. When did you decide the time was right for you? I just feel like i cannot buy a wig unless i am fully bald because its too selfish to have a wig when i only have a few spots missing.
How can I accept that its ok to have a wig.
