I used to be so worried that people would find out I was wearing a wig. 💁🏼♀️
I have had alopecia universalis since I was 5, I started wearing wigs at 7, and when I got to high school and all I wanted to do was fit in (like any teenager!) I was so anxious that people would find out I had no hair and had to wear a wig.
I didn’t want anyone to touch my hair, talk about hair, look at my hair, nothing! I would avoid any and all situations that I could be “found out”, such as swimming carnivals, sleep overs, school camps, etc.
This went on for years, and going into adulthood made things tricky, I found myself getting married and I still hadn’t let my husband-to-be see me without my hair on!! (Finally showed him after we’d been married for 6 months 😆)
When I eventually decided that I wasn’t going to let alopecia rule my life, everything changed.
I am so much more than my hair. YOU are so much more than your hair.
I know it’s scary at first, but it gets so much easier the more you start to own your hair loss.
You have the power! Now I literally brag to people that I get to wear a wig, and they are jealous.
People match your energy and you can choose how to share your hairloss situation with others. Share a sad story, and they’ll pity you. Own it, and they’ll envy you.
✨ Top tip: ✨
“I’ve lost my hair and I have to wear a wig” — “oh no” 😟
“I wear wigs and I get to choose my colour and style every day it’s so much fun” — “omg amazing I wish I could do that” 😍
Never let your hair loss hold you back from being everything you can be and living your life!
