About Me:
Born with Alopecia Areata, but didn't start REALLY losing my hair until around 1998. I am one of the lucky ones whose hair fell out very, very I had a lot of time to prepare before having to purchase my first hair piece (I wear vacuum pieces from New Hair Technology based out of NYC).

I haven't been to a doctor or even tried anything new in a long time, because all of that just upsets me when I'm usually never upset about it! I prefer to just go on with life without worrying about not having any hair. I don't ever go out in public bald, but at the same time I don't keep my Alopecia a secret either. I don't have a problem talking about it, or showing people...i'm just a girly-girl and prefer not to be bald in public.

I'm going to take some bald pics and post some on here soon! :)
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia totalis

Hey Ashley, you hair looks absolutely amazing! Do you still get it from that place you referenced in NYC? I am waiting on a new lace wig to come in, but am also trying to search for other options. I think that not having to use tape would make my life so much easier! If you have any advice please let me know!

hello i just joined the sunshine group and I saw that you live here in florida and that you also wear a wig like me....i have seen other vaccum wigs but they cost thousands of dollars and i can't afford them. living in florida it makes it difficult for me when i want to go to the beach and am so afraid my wig will fall off in the water. How expensive are these wigs from ny? Thanks!

thanks so much for the fyi on vacuum..I kinda thought it wasn't for me, but the woman at Hair Therapy was seeing $$$ in her eyes, and wanted to sell me a vacuum unit for $2000...sure, the hair was gorgeous...but I was unsure if this was for me...and I would have been stuck with something I shouldn't have been directed to buy, and out a lot of money. Why are people like that?? You would think they were in the business, and they would KNOW and direct you to the right thing..

Ashley, oh I see the info on what you no need you know if one can wear vacuum wigs if they still have hair, or must it all be gone for you to wear one? I see we are neighbors, me being right next to Tampa, ...are they hot to wear...since you surely would be the one to ask!!!! Thanks.

It seems like the most natural looking wigs are the vacuum. I still haven't LOST all my hair, it is just torturing me. So I don't know what my options are. Thanks for replying. You look great.
