Why are you BALD? Alopecia
How has being BALD impacted your life? It took me a while to reveal my baldness. My hair was one of best features. I would always get compliments on how pretty my hair was. After I couldn't hide the bald spots any longer, I shaved the few hairs I had off. After that hair started coming out everywhere. I wore wigs, scarves, and slouch hats for the longest. I had decided to reveal my head soon, but on Memorial Day I attended a picnic. It was so hot I had to take off the slouch hat I was wearing. I was with friends and family, so I felt comfortable. Someone took pictures and posted them on FB. Well, it was out there then. So I changed my profile pic and the rest is history. This is still new to me but I love the freedom of not having to find something to cover my head to coordinate with my clothes. I'm free and loving it. My lipstick and earrings are now my hair.
What's the worst thing that has happened or has been said to you as a BALD woman?
Before I revealed my head to the world. I would uncover it around friends and family. My little niece told me that I would never get a husband cause I was bald. So far she is correct...LOL! But I love my new look and I do get lots of compliments and most are from men.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone going BALD?
As a woman, I know it's a hard pill to swallow. But I figured God created me this way for a reason. I love the uniqueness of being bald. I stand out and am noticed. Sometimes when I'm out, I forget I'm bald. It's a journey you must travel on your own, but you are not alone. Embrace your bald beauty. I did and love it!
