Oluminant Aloepecia Community Watch – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!

We have been hearing A LOT about the new FDA Approved Lilly and Incyte's OLUMIANT® (baricitinib) drug. We would like to start a discussion here on Alopecia World with people who have tried it, are trying it, or considering trying it.  This is a place you can discuss both success as well as side-effects and objections to trying the drug.  Hoping this form will help people with alopecia make more informed decisions.  A place that hopefully we can get real users’ comments and reactions.  Maybe…See More

I was with my family at an amusement park today and while on a roller coaster my wig came off.  I was lucky enough to be able to feel it happen and hold it against my head until the ride ended, but I was so frustrated!  

I don't want to change my life because of AA.  It seems like every time I feel like I have accepted and am ok and even moving ahead something happens that shakes it all up again!  But after going to the bathroom and crying a bit I put my chin up and decided that this…

So I have finally started exercising regularly and am wondering how others handle it.  I hate how I feel sweating with a wig on.  I am trying to look around for other options for covering but what have found few options.  What are others doing?  Any thoughts will be appreciated.  Thanks!

Has anyone in the United States bought a Freedom Wig from one of the dealers here? I'm really considering a custom wig and am thinking of contacting them.

Where to order wigs online?

Posted on September 23, 2013 at 10:37pm 5 Comments

I thought I would try to order a wig online since I don't have many options for purchasing one at a store in my area. I placed an order with a website and never received the wig. I have been looking at other sites but am hesitant. I am not ready to go for the custom wig yet...still holding out hope that I am going to regrow. Any suggestions for a reputable site where I can find human hair full lace wigs at reasonable prices? Thanks.
