It's true, sometimes it's comforting to know that someone famous is going through the same thing you are, like Jada Pinkett Smith and Ayanna Pressley, both of whom have opened up about their struggles with alopecia. It's reassuring to know that you're not alone. However, it's important to remember that these celebrities are just people, like you and me. They…Continue

thank you Cheryl for your acceptation hello nice people
thank you for your beautiful smile
I would like to e-mail you my song 'Bald and Beautiful'. I write songs about bald pride.
Awesome Blog! Glad I found it and you are beautiful and encouraging.
I've been seeing a a dermatologist who is a specialist on alopecia at University of Colorado Health. He has had me on Methotrexate for 2.5 years and I have 75% of my scalp hair, eyebrows and eyelashes back. This drug has made a huge difference for me. Though there are side affects, I have felt that they are worth the risk.
Thanks, Cheryl, for uploading the animation, 'It's only Hair.' It is great to see what an active and supportive website you have developed.
Best wishes, Emma
Thank you Cheryl,
I would like to let the members know of something I have found useful in only the last several months. I have alopecia ophiasis (and have had occasionally nails come off) and was told from the beginning that it was unlikely to show improvement. For some 8 or so years, I went to various dermatologists in NYC hospitals. I had monthly steriod injections. Also for a short time, squaric acid to use at home. Finally after having been with one dematologist (having injections) she suggested Rogaine 5% and Fluocinonide 0.05%. I don't know whether to be pleased or angry that this was not mentioned years ago. Why? I have some hair regrowth in places that were completely bare. Also around the hairline I see some regrowth (mixture of dark and white, neither of which I am, but never mind). I can use the stronger Rogaine having had a hysterectomy some years ago. Being very fair I was not a candidate for laser treatment. Who knows if I had been given this much earlier whether the hair loss would have been far less. She has moved away so I cannot ask her but wanted to give this information to others in case it may be helpful to them. I use one in the morning and the other at night. It does make the hair look a bit dull - but that is a minimal problem. It is also cheaper than monthly injections. It would be wonderful if this could help others.
