My Story

I am new to Alopecia world! I am 24 years old and I first started experiencing hair loss when I was 21. I have female pattern hair loss. I first started noticing a difference in my part, then it became general hair loss all over my scalp. I have seen many doctors and had many test done only to determine there is no medical help I can receive. My dermatologist has suggested cortizone shots in my scalp. I am wondering if anyone has experienced these and what the results are! Thanks you!!

Looking for a special girl!

     Hi my name is Scott.  I am hoping to connect with a girl who would like to meet and see where it goes.  Friendship first, hopefully followed by a relationship. I look forward to sharing a relationship with someone I can relate to on all levels.  Most people can not fully understand what we are going through.  Look forward to meeting you!

14 months

So I haven't written a blog post in quite a while, it seems that I had forgotten that my Alopecia even existed for a while! A lot of you will be thinking that that is the worst thing to do, because it always seems to come back with a vengance, but not this time.

I suffer from AA, but when my hair starts to fall out it all goes from my head, but then after a while I do get regrowth! So the last time I fully lost my hair was Christmas 2013, it is now the summer of 2015! Yes I have lost…

Found my first bald spot

It's finally apparent. I found a wide bald spot in the bang area where my part is. No matter how I style it it still shows. Trying not to panic but it's hard. Really need some encouraging words right now. Someone...anyone...

My story

Hi all!

I decided today to look at some alopecia websites today for the first time. I had an idea that a lot of people have alopecia but I had NO idea how badly some people struggle with it. Reading some of the posts below put things into perspective for me so I decided to tell you all about my alopecia story.

I am now 20 years old and I have alopecia universalis. I got it around this time 3 years ago. It didn’t all fall out at once. First it was a slight loss of my eyelashes.…

Steve 2.0

Hi everyone,

I am new to this site as off yesterday but not new to alopecia unfortunately. I am a 24 years old male, currently living in the highlands of Scotland and I have had alopecia for roughly 6 years now. At first my alopecia started off as AA and then slowly developed over to AT where it currently still sits. I have had patches off slight regrowth but nothing major. Currently I have lost about 90% off my scalp hair, 50% off my eyelashes and my eyebrows are roughly…

If you shave it all off

Hi - I have FFA, took years for the doctors to take it seriously.

 I have had the cortisones, NSAID , and minoxidil  and have had reactions to first two. Moon face, neuropathy.

The hair just keeps getting thinner and I am 59. 

I hate the itching - it never seems to actually stop.

It is spoiling so much in my day to day life, worst days being stressed days and the ones with flares.

I am healthy eater, do like wine, not much dairy but its there.
