I am probably 2/3 bald but where I still have hair, I have SERIOUS dandruff (it only started when I started shaving my head). Sorry if this grosses anyone out, but its that bad that if I rub my head,…Continue

About Me:
I'm Nicole. At the end of 2008 I noticed a few bald spots underneath my hair. The doctor told me it was nothing and to get over it. I saw another doctor 8 months later as i had lost more hair and he believed I had some sort of rash causing hair loss ( but in fact it was my birth mark which had always been concealed by hair).

I finally went to a specialist and have been diagnosed with Alopecia Areata. My eyebrows have recently started to fall out and for some reason, I care more about that than my hair. I think because I know I can easily cover my baldness with a wig.

I figured if i start off by listing all the things i hate about alopecia, then it can only get better right? Sure i can learn to accept it but maybe i just want to go on hating it for a little while longer.

Things I hate about Alopecia

1. I cannot wear my hair in a high pony tail.

2. My hair style of choice is a low pony tail or a loose plait

3. I feel i cannot get my hair trimmed because i don't want to go to the hairdresser

4. The way it grows back… Continue

Hi Nicole, I notice that it's a long time since you have been on here but I wanted to talk because I have exactly the she pattern- a few months ago it started at the bottom of my hair above my neck and then it spread up and around my ears. I took the decision to shave it all off because it was looking so thin and hard to cover up with my top hair. Since shaving the hair on top has re grown soft and white and iv shaved it again because it looked so thin and fluffy. I also had a red birth mark where the ophiasis pattern started at the base of my head- not sure if this is a birthmark though because it has not always been there in sure-is this connected go the alopecia? I guess I'm really just wondering where things are at for you now? Has your ever ever re grown? How are you getting on with wigs? Harriet from UK

I actually now have more than 30 wigs but most are cheap ones...I also buy my wigs from the US too at I agree it is sooo much cheaper.
Happy Easter

Hi Nicole, Whoa, I have the same pattern as you Ophiasis, and I've talked with a few others that have this pattern, they along with me, have a birthmark (stork bite) at the nape of the neck above the hairline, I first noticed on a different site that a woman who had photos of her with hair in back pulled up had same birthmark as me, she said that alot of the women with Ophiasis pattern have commented that they too have same birthmark. I am at that tettering phase right now, if I lose much more I will shave too, just trying to hold on to what I have right now, and feeling rather depressed. I have had several episodes of loss and re-growth over the last several years now, and I'm getting so tired of it, as I'm sure you understand. What kind of wig, or wigs do you wear? Do you buy on line or at a shop? sorry for so many questions but not sure what to do right now or where to go??? How do you deep your wigs on? i bought one several years back but couldn't keep on, kept slipping up :-( You look really nice in your pic. Thanks for any info you can give!!

Hi Nicole,
Thanks for the add..
I was so encouraged by your posts. My hair is falling out the same way, I am glad to know someone else is going through something similar (not that I am happy you know what I mean though). I wish my hair would just make up its mind. Fall out or grow back. Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks for your comment Nicole! Right now I have 2 large spots on the back and one behind my ear which I've just been covering up by wearing a pony tail the past 3 months, it gets annoying. My hair is long and when it's all grown in I LOVE wearing it down and doing stuff to it. It has been falling out since late September and last year was all grown in during may june july and august. I'm not sure if it will start growing in again soon, usually this time of year it does but if I keep losing more I may have to resort to a wig or try to find some partials. I don't want to shave it since there is still so much hair. None of my friends know, and I've kept it hidden very well, that's how much hair is left. How are you doing lately?

Hi Nicole
Welcome to AW
So glad that you have joined us here
If you want to wear a wig- wear one. If it makes you feel better than it is worth it isn't it.
