Tattooed Eyebrows – Hair Strokes or Not

I am thinking about getting my eyebrows tattooed on and I meet with a person at a salon where I live. I liked her a lot and her portfolio she showed me looked great. The one thing I asked her about was hair stroke tattooed eyebrows. She said that she does not do the hair stroke technique for permanent tattooed eyebrows. Does anyone have any information on the hair stroke technique? The lady I meet was really nice and I liked her portfolio but I just want to get any information before I do this.… Continue

Instead of a "diary" for what´s happening with me at this point of time...

Long time ago ...

I think, at least, it´s a quite-long time ago,

I have been struggling with various, "millions"

of problems.. growing-up, first love, passing my

exams at school...

But: All these so-called "problems" seem to disappear,

as soon as I look into the mirror.. my-god.. am i just

a little crazy, or is it true.. am I loosing my hair, already..?

What is, has been or could be "wrong" about my life, and the

way I live every new day? Do i… Continue

Make Lemonade … Right!! Well, I am So sick of drinking lemonade I could PUKE!! Please bare with me, this could get long..I just need to vent! And what better place than with women that have walked in my shoes.

I’m really not looking for sympathy; more like answers or someone that has gone through a similar experience. Some of you might have seen my post on the Thyroid thread a few weeks ago. At the time I was dealing with my “issues” pretty well. Unfortunately, things have changed… Continue

Attention everyone near Chicago!!!!!!

I have found my new favorite woman. Her name is Linda DiFronzo. She owns Hair for You Salon in Arlington Heights, IL. If you remember, I was asking about what to do with wigs that were too big (because the petite wig selection is lacking!!). Well...let me introduce Linda. She owns her own salon that does everything! My mom thinks she is going to go to her to get her hair styled, colored, etc (she does not have alopecia). But, for the past… Continue

My first blog post!

This will be a GREAT place for me to vent, dispense advice and put in writing all of my musings and ponderings. Feel free to leave comments!

Today is about my current musings and ponderings:

I read a quote once that "those who mind, don't matter - and those who matter, don't mind". Not only does this apply to alopecia, but to many other facets of our life, whether it is our personality quirks, past indiscretions or current situations. It helps to reflect on this truth when… Continue

My New EyeBrows

I finally got them!!! It was so nerve racking! The following day, every time I looked in the mirrior all I saw was EYEBROWS, HELLO!!!!!! I cried all day. I hated them! Then yesterday, I started to get used to them a little more and I definetly fell better now. They are a big scab right now, so they are still too dark. But, as soon as the scab goes anf they lighten, I'm sure I wil be happy. Its actually nice to look in the mirror and see myself with eyebrows on after a shower, usually there is… Continue

Karen and New Life Hair + eyebrow/lash recommendations

Last week, Karen Peterik from New Life Hair came to my house to talk about the Vacuum Sealed Freedom Wigs. She was amazing. Talking with her was really great. She was so helpful. We decided to hold off for a little while. I am still starting out with this whole process (5+ weeks) and am having patches of regrowth. I am still having new patches develop, but some new regrowth. But, those hairpieces were AMAZING! So light and natural. I could not beleive… Continue

My story

I grew up in a loving family with two parents who exuded love everywhere we went and two brothers who eventually grew up to be my mentors, my champions and my best friends.

We were rather poor, but my brothers and I never doubted for a second that our parents loved us and were proud of us. And their love for us was never more clear than when we needed them. My brothers were quite accident prone and spent a lot of our childhood in emergency rooms with sliced open hands or broken… Continue

About Nicky

Nicholas Peyton (Nicky) was born in June 2001, he is the youngest of 5 children. Nicky had beautiful dark brown hair, and smiled almost instantly. He was a healthy newborn. When he was 2 weeks old he was put in the hospital with a high fever, it lasted several days, we never did know what it was. Nicky began loosing his hair. I was not alarmed because my other two sons lost thier hair as babies to. Nicky had GERD (reflux) really bad, they switch his formula several times. His hair quickly grew… Continue

Tattoo on Eyebrows and Eyeliner!

I know so many people have posted about this subject before but here I

I want to get both tattooed on because I know the chances of my hair coming back is very slim. I was told to wait to get it on because you are still growing until about 22 years of age. Well I am 19 and I have decided to wait on the eyebrows but I want to get the eyeliner done soon.

I get tired of my eyeliner always running and having to worry about itching my eye and the eyeliner coming off. I… Continue

Ready for Liberation

I REALLY want to get off of this rollercoaster ride (constant shedding) and shave my head. My family and friends do not understand. They just see what looks like normal hair (admittedly alot thinner) and think I am overreacting. My question to them is, "how long do I have to suffer before I can liberate myself"? I know they mean well, but they are all really starting to hurt me. My best friend actually laughed at me when I told her I was thinking about shaving my head. She thinks I should… Continue

Hair Again

I am now experiencing a really weird feeling. I now have hair again.

I cannot believe that it has all come back. I have not shaved my head for a month now and I have more hair than I would have thought possible in such a short period of time.

The last time I shaved was on the Saturday evening of the August bank holiday. I shaved at about 1800 hours as I was going to our friends’ 25th Wedding Anniversary party. As always with a big night out I wanted a really close shave… Continue

Alicia's new hair!

On Friday, Sept. 19th we went to the Hairclub and received Alicia's new hair! It looks great! They did order her hair piece to have "wave" in it, which was probably not the best, since her hair is straight as a board! But, I can flat iron it and condition it and it still looks great! She loves it, which is the most important part! They were super nice at Hairclub and I would recommend them to anyone.

Alicia is starting to lose hair on the opposite side of her head from where the hair… Continue

Here are some names of the new groups:

Honoring Alopecia Awareness Month?

Hello to everyone that glances at my post!

I am wondering....What have you done, if anything, to help raise awareness about Alopecia in your community, school, circle of friends or family etc. etc. How have you felt doing this and how do feel that others have responded?

I'd love to hear about how We as Alopecians try to enlighten others. Hopefully your answers will inspire more us to spread the word about our unique situation.

Keep smiling you guys!
