About Me:
I am a 30 year old living and studying to be an Early Childhood Teacher in Dunedin.

I have been having problems with hairloss for the past 2 years.

I have been diagnosed with Diffuse Alopecia or CTE although I don't quite know for sure.

It has majorly impacted on my life in all aspects and I am finding it difficult to cope, which is why I joined this site. It is extremely comforting to know I am not the only person facing these issues and it is so helpful to talk to people who understand.

I am currently in the position of trying to find a wig as am finding it very difficult to continue my normal day feeling like this. The transition period is difficult and learning how to cope with this is something new to me.

I am usually a very outgoing , fun and happy person and I really need to find that in me again and with the help of this site I am hoping I will!!!


I enjoy being around family and friends and want to travel. I love burlesque and want to try aerial silks :)

I look forward to meeting you all and hearing your stories.

Hi from New Zealand!! xxoo

The Spiro wasn't strong enough for me and I was on the 200mg a day, the maximum dose, so we're trying Cyproterone now, that can only be perscribed by an endocrinologist, and if that doesn't help I'll to give the Flutamide a go, (but your liver has to be monitered very closely on it). Bear in mind I have quite bad hyper androgen issues so if you don't have any problems with that Spiro should be good enough. Another well known American endocrinologist also believes extra estrogen helps women with AGA but I don't know quite how much research has been done on that, but pill therapy of AGA is usually an anti-androgen plus Estrogen - usually through one of the approptiate BC pills (some have a negative impact on AGA).

Hi Jennah, I saw my derm today and we were talking about AGA hair loss and he follows the research of the top AGA in women researcher (she's in California) and her extensive research on it has shown the only thing that helps if you get it in your 20's, 30's, 40's - basically before and during menopause are the anti-androgen medications and that minox does nothing during those years. Once your post menopausal minox then becomes the only thing that 'does' work. My derm wasn't sure why it seems to work in that order but I just thought I'd let you know, I wondered if maybe giving the Spiro might be worth a go if you don't have any success with the minox? Take care.

Did you get my link to the secret FB page? Its not the alopecia world one.
I didn't start having kids till I was 33 so there is plenty of time for you yet LOL. And your step daughter will be old enough to babysit which is the perfect family set up HE HE.
Wow you and your partner have been together for ages and you sound like your still madly in love? Rico and I have been together for about 8 years now and 3 kids and 2 dogs later we are still hanging in there LOL. Hard work sometimes!!!

Im an early childhood teacher too I have been for the past 25 years..... makes me sound old but Im only 40. I still feel 30!!
What company sold you an expensive topper? And whats wrong with it?? There are some curly ones I think, there are some girls on Wig Support who have curly hair too..... wonder what they do?? Also you can curl synthetic toppers or wigs as Ive seen it on youtube, its with curlers and hot water I think. You would have to buy a cheap one to test it out?? Ive always wondered if we can make a topper out of a wig? Ill research that next LOL its like a hobby. I do wish I had found toppers in my 30's I might of been a lot happier and more confident instead of worrying about my hair all the time. Not that anyone would of known the battle I was having with myself not even my closest friends. :O(
I figure Ill use toppers as long as I can as it looks more natural when I wear my hair up.
Are you on the secret face book page? Keels from Christchurch just introduced me its really cool too.
Ive got 3 kids, 6 year old Macee, 4 year old Jimmy and 3 year old Jed. I also have 2 young Schnauzer puppies who we hope to breed one day. Busy as in our house LOL.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.


PS you could share hair with us and postage if we can organize it. :O)

Hey thanks for you wee massage. I wish I had seeked help or support earlier in my life as my hair has been thinning for some time now and Ive suffered in silence. Now I have discovered hair fibers, sprays and finally toppers, wiglets and hairpieces wat ever you want to call them. Ive found this web site and wig support which is amazing. You look like you have lots of hair but we often see our selves in the worst most possible light eh?? Have you tried toppers? Another hair friend and I are swapping toppers by post to try each others and see wat we like. We have just sent each other the first swap this week and we are both waiting eagerly. Its expensive to post from the US to NZ so we will combine post on purchases too. You have a stunning face so if you decided to shave you would look amazing. I think Ill do it one day but Im just not ready yet.
Nice to hear from you Jennah and keep in touch.
PS look up
