Need alopecia model in St Charles, IL, Feb 25-27th . . .

Posted on December 3, 2010 at 5:10pm 2 Comments

Hi . . . I am exhibiting my hats and scarves at the Working Women's Survival Show in St Charles, IL the weekend of Feb 24-27. I have a speaking engagement to talk about what it is like to lose your hair, and want to do a brief on-stage demo. I am looking for a female model to be a naked noggin . . . you must be comfortable without wigs or hats, since I will need to change the looks around.

I work with women who have alopecia OR who are suffering hair loss from chemotherapy, and… Continue

Really odd question about ringing in the ears

Posted on May 4, 2010 at 1:32am 13 Comments

I have been suffering with ringing in my ears for a couple years now. I started reading up on it in preparation to go to the doctor, and I found that tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is caused when the tiny hairs in your inner ears, which sent auditory signals to your brain, are damaged or killed. For some reason, when something happens to those hair cells, the brain perceives it as sound, and your ears ring.

Well, since I have alopecia pretty much everywhere, including inside my nose,… Continue

Starting Alopecia Awareness / Acceptance Project

Posted on April 15, 2010 at 12:52am 11 Comments

Hi all . . . new to the site but not to alopecia. I am working on a major alopecia awareness and acceptance project . . . we are out there but not OUT there, if you know what I mean.

This could be a great opportunity for healing if you are new to alopecia . . . or if you are comfy with the bald-thing, it's a fun project to work on.

Size, shape, age, gender, race, ice-cream preference . . . none of it matters.

Send me a message if you'd like to hear more . . .

Hi . . . my name is Kari and I'm new to alopeciaworld but NOT new to alopecia . . . it's been 15 years since I lost my hair, back before there was really anything out there online to help out.

We have to get this piece of… Continue

Your so sweet for trying to help. I found my wig home in Newport Beach. Wiggin Out Salon. I contracted the owner to make me a wig using Raw American Caucasian Human Hair and I know she will be making it for me. I get to visit the wig while its being made. I did my research and found 98% of the wigs are made in China and I do not believe in supporting slave labor. Especially little girls that are bound by their feet. It is so sad. I am going to write an article soon. Thanks again. I am sure your guy in LA is amazing! And so are you! xoxo

Hi Kari - I am so new to alopecia, but feel as though I have made tremendous progress so far. I've only had this for just over 9 weeks and have had to adjust quickly to losing my hair. I've always been a positive person and a fighter, so I am not going to let alopecia beat me down. I spent a few weeks beign depressed and feeling sorry for myself, but now that I shaved, I can feel myself walking over that bridge to the other side. Someday I will be able to walk around bald and hold my head high, but for right now, I still have to get used to it myself!

What is this project you are working on? I live 3 hours from Philly ... might be interested if I'm the kind of person you are looking for. I don't have totalis or universalis, still very patchy. Let me know.

Have a great day!
