I'm 71. In a few years I'll be bald half my life. I don't even think about it growing back. Most of my friends decided to stop colouring their hair when Co19 hit. Sometimes I feel I'm missing out on a rite of passage.

Right after I lost my hair this week in 2008 at age 56, I was in contact with two women who were putting together a documentary or a blog about alopecia - I don't remember what - named Margaret and Laura, out of NYC. They interviewed me via Skype but I never found out what, if anything happened with that production. Recently I did find a Facebook page for them: …Continue
I signed up to participate in an alopecia study I thought why not what could it hurt ? I’ve already lost all my hair so there’s nothing to worry about there . But then I think what if my hair grows back? Then I think if it doesn’t help me maybe it will help someone else someone young.Alopecia is devastating for me as an adult I can’t imagine having it as a child or a teenager.But now I’m kind of having second thoughts. I’m kind of worried about the medication I’d be putting into my body…Continue
Join me and a group of incredible women with alopecia in a Let's Talk webinar!
Adulting can be described as learning to navigate grown-up things and have responsibilities, such as finding full-time employment, paying bills, dating, and relationships, and more. Adulting can be filled with many ups and downs, let alone navigating it with alopecia.
I have come across a site hairstemstore.com that sells topical stem cells which seem to be gaining a lot of attention the last few years.
Has any one heard of this?

As every cloud has a silver lining, always take things positively. Don’t…Continue

All the best to everyone!
It’s possible to conceal early signs of balding by using a concealer or bald spot spray. This is a temporary fix and might come in handy if you’ve just started shedding. They don’t get to the root of the problem. A good bald spot spray typically contains nanofibers and dyes.
So, when you apply it on the affected spots, it entwines with your existing hair provide coverage to areas where it’s needed most. These nanofibers are made from keratin which is the exact same natural material…Continue

I don’t have Alopecia, anxiety or depression. I haven’t had suicidal thoughts roam the sacred space of my mind, nor have I been bullied for my appearance. I am not familiar with the feeling of a panic attack or crippling social anxiety and, I have never felt so deeply overcome with mental pain that I couldn’t breathe. But - I was there for Leon through all of the above and this absolutely devastated me.
When you love someone, everything becomes a simultaneous…Continue
