I lost my hair 30 years ago. I have now lived my life more without my hair than with it. But at the same time, I clearly remember leaving the dermatologist's office and him telling me that I have alopecia and I…Continue
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.
