Alopecia Areata Support Group

Alopecia areata ("baldness in spots") is a form of hair loss from areas of the body, usually from the scalp. Because it causes bald spots on the head especially in the first stages, it is also called spot baldness. Hair loss can extend to eyebrows, eyelashes and facial and nasal hair and create more bald spots elsewhere in the body.

    Hi,I have been losing my hair for 3 weeks now, I used to have full thick beautiful hair and now have lost about 2/3 of it. Blood tests show nothing wrong with me. I have 2 bald spots on each side.

    Advice Please

    Hello, I have been suffering with alopecia areata for a few years now and have been through almost every treatment possible with no results! I have lost the hair to the front and sides of my scalp and am looking for options of hair pieces that would be suitable. I dont want to go for a full wig as I have thick hair everywhere else but need something that looks natural.
  • I've tried most of the popular brands, and used different wig caps...but they all become itchy and annoying after a short while. Is there a secret to wearing a wig that I might not be aware of? I have Alopecia and have very thin hair that makes me look bald all over my scalp. I would like to wear a wig again since people seem to react different to me when I have one on, otherwise they think I'm...

    Hi,Has anyone had the Xtrands done? I'm wondering how often you have to add hair, how much they charge for the maintenance, and how it looks. I have read complaints about the cost and the sales pressure at the Hair a club but haven't seen many complaints about the products. I was told the initial price is $3,195 but they won't tell me how much it will cost to maintain. Any information would be...

    Hi, I am a mom of 6 kids...one of them is my 13 year old daughter who has been struggling with alopecia. This happened almost a year ago when chunks of hair began to come out at the nape of her hairline...then soon it became worse until she lost all her hair except a strip like the old men get from one ear to the other....I ended up shaving that off for her just to make her look a little...
  • I'm a 55-year-old woman whose first-ever patches appeared last October. My general practitioner said it was due to stress and referred me on to a dermatologist. My dermatologist then diagnosed me in January with alopecia areata and prescribed a topical steroid treatment which, over a six-week period, really had no effect. March 1st I started a version of the Paleo diet -- I'm maybe 98%...

    Hair Regrowth

    My hair is beginning to regrow and I always told myself I would post on a forum to tell everyone what exactly I did to get some regrowth. So a bit of background on my AA story. I am a 20 year old college male and I first noticed a quarter sized bald spot on the back right of my head in March of 2014. I had long hair at the time so it was pretty easy to cover up and I didn't think much of it other...

    Just an introduction! I'm here for my girlfriend. She has alopecia universalis and lost all the hair on her body before we met. She's recently becoming more comfortable being bald around others, though she naturally still has issues with her appearance. I think she's amazingly gorgeous, especially without a wig. She's really open talking about it and it's effects on her life, so I feel that I...
  • I am currently getting ready to look for a new job. I am on unemployment and have been making do on $100.00 per week. My hair is very, very thin and I can't style it to cover the bald spots.
