Rite of passage

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.

Suddenly losing a ton of hair


  1. I have Female Androgenic Alopecia.  It has been four years since I was diagnosed with Androgenic Alopecia.  I have tried everything and my hair is still thinning. I had PRP and did laser treatment. I am on minoxidil and I take 250 mg spironolactone everyday.  I had very thick hair so I am able to cover my thinning hair for now.  About two months ago I started to lose 300-350 hairs a day.  There is no end in sight.  My hair is just falling out everywhere.  I was wondering if…

"Change is hard at first, messy in the middle, and gorgeous at the end"

Did you know that we are not only the owner of, but we are also photographers?

I met Michelle online and immediately connected with her.  This session started as a boudoir shoot and ended as a self-journey.  It was very touching and real as the photographs reveal a story of entering into self-acceptance.

Looking back to when I developed AU

Right after I lost my hair this week in 2008 at age 56, I was in contact with two women who were putting together a documentary or a blog about alopecia - I don't remember what - named Margaret and Laura, out of NYC.  They interviewed me via Skype but I never found out what, if anything happened with that production.  Recently I did find a Facebook page for them: …

Would you do an Alopecia medication study?

I signed up to participate in an alopecia study I thought why not what could it hurt ? I’ve already lost all my hair so there’s nothing to worry about there .

I’m kind of worried about the medication I’d be putting into my body…
