Hi Vonne, welcome to the group! You look gorgeous! I can't believe you're 60! I buzzed my hair years ago. It was quite liberating. I found it so helpful not having to see the constant shedding and thinning.

As for shaving, I did that a couple of times. I found it easier to just keep a very short buzz cut (for those of us who still have some hair growing). I also found that having a buzz cut helps with wearing a wig. The buzz cut acts like velcro!  It's helps keep the wig in place.

Again, welcome! I hope others come along and offer you some tips. If not, keep searching this site for the answers to your questions. Alopecia World has some awesome members who are quite helpful.  :)

Every day we go through experiences and find ways to make our lives with alopecia easier. Such knowledge is priceless to others who are living and coping with alopecia.

I recently wrote a blog about using your difference and I think this group can really do that for many who are suffering.

Please pay your acceptance forward.

I am so proud of myself! I shaved my head myself for the first time even though I was apprehensive. It is so liberating when you succeed at something you are afraid to do.

I have had LPP for almost 2 years.  My head is very patchy and on March 31 I started shaving it.  I have been more at peace with it ever since because I am longer feel the need to look at my head all the time.
