We'd like to introduce to you this beautiful Bald Lady name Larisha Nelson. We just love how she truly embraces who she is regardless of her circumstances and because of that she is Baldie of the month of May.
I have scarring alopecia that resulted in me permanently losing hair covering about 40% of my head.
It has made me come to the realization that the beauty I thought I had with hair had nothing to do with why I am beautiful at all. For the almost 6 months, I was depressed. I felt fake and every time I walked by a mirror I broke down. I had a constant fear of losing my wig and it coming off while I was teaching. 2 people saw that I was bald, one of my students and a colleague because my scarf had come up one day. The fear when my student saw, took me out of the classroom the rest of the day, but became a life lesson for them later. I know some women that can't deal with it the way that I have and I say to them, your hair cannot live your life, it cannot take care of your children, or go to work for you. It is, like many other things, an addition to the appearance as to which you wish to reveal yourself to the world. It is also, like many things, something that can be lost. If it was meant for you to live without hair, whether it is by choice or a life occurrence, it DOES NOT account for ANY of the reasons why you are who you are, you have what you have, or who you've come to love and who loves you for you! My loss has been a gain for so many! I will not let hair define me or my life. If I choose to wear it, it's because I CHOOSE not because I have to! I now have an advantage over so many who have it and don't no what to do with it!
