My very bad hair day

I had been bonding for 3 years and just recently noticed that when I detach/reattach I no longer have to shave the top of my head.  I always thought that one day, maybe when I retire I'd stop wearing hair and just cut my hair really short like Annie…

Searching for some active members of the alopecia world society in the Phoenix Arizona area.


I live in Phoenix Arizona and I'm searching for an opportunity to become more involved in the Alopecia community here in AZ. I have had a very positive experience growing up with Alopecia and I want to share my experiences with others in my community. I have developed a way of thinking that I think may benefit someone struggling with Alopecia, male or female. I can even share some of my experiences with anyone who wants to hear them. I would love to at least be someone…

Just some Words (poem)


Don't wanna be the victim,

Don't wanna play the part,

My false sense of self is tearing me apart.

I'm done telling myself lies

I'm done hearing myself cry,

The way i lived my past wont be the way that I die.

I didn't waste those years for nothing,

I didn't give'em away for free,

the things I've hated about myself,

they aren't really me.

I guess I did it to see how bad it hurt,

I guess I lit it to see how bad it…

Lessons learned from my students & alopecia

I am a high school teacher along with running my business. In high school, I teach some tough kids, the kids that don't love school, the ones that have many other issues that make school seem meaningless and the kids that teach me everyday in one way or another.  I love both my jobs.

I decided to share my story about my hair loss with my students this year and with my high school volleyball team that I coach.  The result was complete understanding and empathy from all of the students.…

I find myself looking at other women's hair

When Im out doing errands or at the mall or park, I sometimes look at some ladies parts or hairline.

Before I had my son I would just style my thin hair pretty much like a comb over lol. Some days it didnt seem so bad but other days it look like a Donald trump comb over. I didn't… Continue

What's your best way to go swimming without showing your hairloss? Is there wigs out there for that. I started to wear a silk closure with clips sew into it but when summer comes i don't know how to hide my hairloss, I would just avoid it but my son loves water. I want him to have a fun summer.

Dating advice

So I have read the horror stories on here about what happened when someone had informed their significant other about their alopecia. Since 2008, I have been inflicted with AA and having really done much dating until recently. I have been wearing wigs and sometimes it gets rough and frustrating due to some of the constant pain wigs can create

Well now I find myself in a weird and unfamiliar place. I am currently dating a great guy who seems to be genuinely into me. He has questioned…
