I have Alopecia . ( gone head and click that link if you want the full on explanation of what it is) To sum it up it means my hair falls out in patches and creates bald spots. Once the hair is gone, it doesn’t grow back. I have a form known as Alopecia Areata Multilocuaris which means I have several patches in my scalp. I have lived with this since I was 18 or so. It started off as slight hair loss but it progressed to larger patches .People who don’t know me have no clue I have Alopecia because I have dealt with it so long that I am very good at covering it. The downside to that is I am limited in the hairstyles I can wear * sad face *. I’d love to wear my hair in just a simple straight back ponytail every now and again. I can’t. Well I can but umm yea my patches would be extra visible. I’d love to cut my hair off into a short curly style. I can’t do that either. So my only option is to wear it long or in braids ( like I have it now).
Naturally curly like ^ that
Slicked down into a low ponytail ( which I hate!)
or curled ( yea sorry I cut my own head off lol)
So I’m sure u see the pattern here. Unless I have my hair in a low slicked down ponytail i always have to wear is down *ugh!* That gets annoying, it really does. The Alopecia prevents me from doing a lot of nice things with my hair. Maybe that’s why I do hair on the side. To live vicariously through the heads that I do lol.
I just pray to white Jesus that my daughter doesn’t inherit this crap. She has a full head right now. I hope she gets to keep it 🙂
