Sorry again if there are any misspellings or grammer mess ups. Anyway I am going to talk about a few ways of having fun with your bald head. One way I had fun with my bald head in school and outside of school was when holidays came around I would yet the other kids paint hearts, clovers, eggs, christmas trees, menorahes, and many other things. lol It was great and the other kids and everyone else thought it was awesome!! I would also let the younger kids put stickers on my head.… Continue

I think one of the things that scares me the most about my hair loss is the fact that I may not be able to find someone who will love and except me for who i am. I have lived as an out bisexual for a couple of years now, and i always wondered if women would be more accepting to this condition than men. In all honesty though, i think that both sex's can be a bit shallow when it comes to stuff like this. Sighs...i'm just not sure these days. But i do hope that the woman..or man that decides to be… Continue

I grew up with alopecia since the age of two my son is developing it now and my wife is taking it very hard. To me it is not a big deal since I did ok with it. I do not understand why she feels so down and am seeing how in many ways Alopecia has a bigger effect on people the love you more than yourself. If I can get some suggestions on how I should handle the situation I would appreciate it.

Hello everyone! I am sure that you have heard this before. All the treatments that my little girl has been on have not helped or helped much. Kate is on Prednisone-10mg right now. She started loosing her hair in Nov. 2009. I took her to Childrens Hospital in Denver CO and she saw a great Derm. Doctor that specializes in Alopecia. We went through topical treatments, shots, and now Steroids. I hate them and what it is doing to her. She is so emotional!! She cries at anything that would never… Continue

It's hard to believe that it's almost been a year since I shaved my head. This time last year I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror, I was having anxiety attacks every time I took a shower or worked out because my hair was coming out in handfuls. I was fortunate enough to have a couple of friends that I told what was happening and they were a great support system they both offered to shave my head. When I did shave my head I felt better in that I felt like I was taking some control over… Continue

When my first patch of hair fell out, I was horrified. I had never heard of Alopecia until that time. I later found out that my father lost his hair due to alopecia by the time he was about 35 years old. I didn't begin loosing mine until I was about 45. I am now 55 and going thorough the worst hair loss I have ever experienced. I go back and forth between worry, anger and acceptance. Sometimes I wish it would hurry up and all fall out so I won't have to worry any more. I think about shaving,… Continue

Look out world here I come...
As many of you may know, I have been an emotional wreck since I first found a bald spot in the back of my head months and months ago. It has been quite a ride, and this site has been such a blessing to me. To recap my experience...
My hair all fell out when I was five, and it all grew back. We had no idea why it happened but we figured that it was a freak thing and would not happen again. So then my freshman year of college I scratch the back… Continue

It was brought to my attention that Oprah is looking for the public to suggest a person that they want to see interviewed before her show ends in 2011. Some have said how great it would be to have Kayla on to represent Alopecians worldwide - especially since she will be competing for Miss America on Jan 15, 2010 in Las Vegas Nevada.

Ive been a member of this site for a few months probably but this is my first time on the site. I am 22 years old and starting developing alopecia about a year ago now, it started with a small spot . It progressed and got to the poinjt i shaved my head and purchased a wig. I am a recovering Anorexic, and have suffered for 6 years, doctors think this may play a part in my hairloss. I also am having hormonal issues too, which may be affecting my hair too. Its a big puzzle really.

Wow, has it really been so long since I posted on here??? I used to trawl this wonderful site numerous times daily searching for hope and kindred spirits. What a help it has been, and I'm a little ashamed to neglect it in recent weeks.
Alopecia has actually been in my life for over 20 months, but it went into overdrive a year ago, and turned me into a stressed out/anxious/depressed wreck.
One year on, and I'm doing really well (the turning point actually happened after… Continue

Haven't been updated for a long time, I think it's still the same as those pictures I posted 2 months ago. Slow progress, hairs are growing longer, but those bald patches are still there. Last two months, I have blisters almost everytime after the treatment. So the doctor decided to decrease the DCP concentration to 0.5%, instead of 2%. This week is better, at least, no more blister but the itchiness is still there, kind of desire effect. will see how its going.
