Girl!! I have a similar experience, I definitely believe that sun and fresh air exposure plays a major role in hair growth. Confidence and acceptance as well since it reduces how much we stress about Alopecia.  I had Alopecia Universalis since 16 and I wore a wig ALL the time.  Right before I turned 19, I started gaining confidence in myself for the person I was without the wig and accepted the fact that there was nothing wrong with me, I just did not have hair.  Since April/May, I came out with my Alopecia and  since then there has been major regrowth.  The growth starts out as little blonde baby hairs and then grows into my normal black thick hair. 

After spending most of the summer without my wig, more and more bigger patches keep growing in. I shave every weekend so everything can come in evenly, but I have to admit during the middle of the week or when I am not able to shave, I do get a little self conscious about having a few bald spots that are still in the baby process.  I work in retail so I do wear different wigs to work and school but I definitely let my head breathe as well.  I like to drive with the sunroof open when it's sunny, and I have found that massaging my own head, or having my boyfriend/mom massage it has definitely helped with the regrowth since that helps circulate the blood.

You look beautiful. Happy for you.
We lost all of Isabella's hair last oct/Nov. We spent most of the summer months at the lake boating.I truly believe the sun hitting her bald head did something. She has a little mohawk right and some spots but the baby peach fuzz had stopped growing since we are no longer able to go boating. One thing that hasn't changed is her smile and that makes everything better.
Good luck to you!

I've lost my hair twice; twice it has grown back. Right now, it is starting to fall out again. I have speculated the hair loss could be seasonal as it always starts falling out late Oct-mid Nov. I am outdoors all summer, but spend less time outdoors heading into fall. Usually it starts to grow back late Feb. to early March after I have spent a few months in Florida. So, you have just given me more reason to think I need to spend more time outdoors and not cut back my outside activities as the weather changes. Thank you for sharing.

Pam and Isabella's Dad....Have you had your/Isabellas's Vitamin D levels checked?  I just wonder if there is a connection with the lack of sunlight during the fall/winter months that impact the hair loss?  Sunlight helps our bodies to produce Vitamin D naturally.  We live in Michigan and many Michiganders become Vitamind D deficient in the winter.  I would also like to share that my Aunt (with AA) had regrowth after intiating Vitamin D and Zinc (she was deficient in both).

Vitamin D levels were low, however taking vitamin D did nothing to stop/promote hair loss.

It has been 9 months since I lost all my hair, only my eyelashes are making a comeback this time; some "sprouts" on my scalp, but nothing to get excited about.

I was wondering if "Hayley" has kept her hair or if her regrowth was temporary.
