About Me:
I'm an artist (painter,singer etc.) who moved here to New York to grow as an artist. I've had Alopecia since I was about 17. Everytime I went to a doctor no one could tell me how I got it and how to get rid of it. I use to wear my hair with pomades and combed it slick back but over the years it just got thinner and pretty much left. I made a choice to finally cut it bald. It was a hard one at first but I feel better.

Do you have alopecia?
Scarring alopecia
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes

The Bald Woman Project 2009.

Posted on November 22, 2008 at 12:18pm 3 Comments

As an artist I've always enjoyed exploring ideas and asking questions through various mediums. From film, photography, stage plays to painting I love using these as doors to present questions to the world. Lord willin', sometime in 2009 I'll be able to put the art piece on exhibit.

I'd like to get some ideas from my fellow alopecians about some projects that you'd like to see featuring bald women. Honesty is appreciated.

Halle Berry will be bald in her new movie Nappily Ever After!

Ladies and gentlemen it seems Ms. Berry will be shaving her head bald to play a woman who looses her hair and forced to deal with the perceptions of women without hair. I believe this is based off a book that won a few awards. It sounds very interesting and I think it'll be good. What do you all think?

Cicatricial Alopecia aka Scarring Alopeica!!

Posted on October 15, 2008 at 4:22pm 5 Comments

Hair loss is hair loss but I notice that ones with AA or Alopecia Areata had smooth skin where as those with CA or Cicatricial have skin that can look like somone burnt it. Having this form of hair loss was one thing that kept me from shaving it all off because I didn't want the scarring to show. I've had cicatricial alopecia for some years now and I wanted to know of others who has the same type.

What do you think if there were more bald women in mainstream media?

In the past few months I've learned so much about various kinds of alopecia and the people it effects. I would love to see women more accepted in movies, news and entertainment that are bald. It's the artist in me speaking out, but hey. Why not?

Thanks for the information, Leon. I'll go to Rite Aide and pick it up. I can't tell you the one I have now, but its has several blades and is battery operated (I think that's just a selling ploy though LOL) Take care!

hey leon, i dont know how strong i am but i do know it was a neccessity. actually crown regal was the first person i ever talked to about my hairloss, even after suffering with it for so many years. i was just googling and found her website! i do have some scarring in the back of my head but i still wear my head bald and my chin up. when people stare i just hold my head up high and smile and speak. i just bought the headblade i saw in your pics. how does it work for you? and how often do you use it? do you use the slick?
