This has been one of my fears with treatments like Olumiant

"I’m so sorry you are going through that pain of losing hair after so much regrowth. When most of my hair was gone I shaved the rest off mainly because of the heartbreak of seeing all my hair falling. My big concern with the JAK inhibitors is…"

Doctor with Alopecia Discusses New Olumiant Drug

"I agree Margaret, I’m 66 and as much as I want my hair back, not sure the risk vs benefit is worth it. These type of drugs lower your immune system to work. This seems to open you up to dangerous infections and illnesses. I understand these…"

Christine replied to Geoff Taylor's discussion The Oscar should have gone to Jada...
"Geoff thank you! Very well said. I would love to have that amount of hair. I’m not sure what the motivation is behind what she is doing, and what Will Smith did was so distasteful, it accomplished nothing, it altered the way I see him forever.…"

Christine replied to ksed5473's discussion AU and hair growth after 8 years
"I too continue to have hope. It took about ten years for me to progress from AA to practically AU. I say practically because I have no hair except maybe one or two on my legs. I’ve lost and regrown my eyelashes a few times. I have them now and…"

Christine commented on HarlyQ's blog post Would you do an Alopecia medication study?
"Jade, I agree with you. My Alopecia is extensive, no hair on head, unless you count the depigmented hairs I’m having to buzz off, no eye brows, and lashes that come and go. I have a couple of hairs on my legs...that being said I’d love…"

Christine replied to Jessica's discussion What make-up do you use?
"I use the forked eyebrow pens my favorite is Salon perfect brow marker in universal taupe. I have only found it online at Walmart. It is waterproof and lasts all day (does not rub off) I put a little light brown shadow or regular brow pencil just…"

Christine replied to Anne Williams's discussion False eyelashes
"Great question! I’ve been wondering the same thing. I hope someone chimes in with opinions. Do you find the glue irritates your eyes? I have very sensitive dry eyes so have been reluctant to try the glue."

Christine replied to Angelfear45's discussion Feels alone all the men even care? Don't think dating sites work.

Christine replied to Christine's discussion Gripper wearers styling help
"Thanks Rose....actually I’ve learned to work with it, the problem was I allowed it to completely dry and now I smooth it with a round brush while it’s damp. I’m liking the amount of wave that’s there now. I just needed to get…"

About Me:
I have had AA for ten years now,and for the first 8 I had a lot of losing and regrowth, Last year it became so bad that I gave up and buzzed off what was left of my hair, got a really good wig and quit obsessing over my hair. I would love my bio hair to grow back, but have very little hope of that right now. Alopecia changes your life, but life goes on.
Do you have alopecia?
Alopecia universalis
Are you age 18 or older?

Hey Christine, Think about you often, and wonder how it is going with your GRIPPER wig? How is it holding up, how's the care, and do you wear it daily? Hope all is going well with you.

Thank you so much for the Glue idea! I never would have thought a spiking gel would work to hold the wig on.

My experience with the Gripper has been WONDERFUL! I am just bummed that I didn't find it sooner, haha. I am getting some regrowth in the back and on top, and I haven't noticed any problems. My favorite part is that I can go to crowded places without worrying if it's going to get caught on someone and keep going with them! haha :) Good luck! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask me!
