Until quite recently, not even the most attractive, rich, or famous could "get away" from a bald and beautiful fate. Thanks to the exponential improvement of LLLT, medication, and surgery, there are preventative solutions that, when carefully assessed and practiced, can have impressive and "braggable" results for those who are starting to notice some of the many symptoms of hair loss.
Of course, we know artists and musicians notorious for their reflective heads. Some of these familiar names have lived their hair journeys publicly with the most apparent forms of alopecia. Some names that come to mind? Vinn Deisel, Dwayne Johnson, Patrick Stewart, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Jason Statham, to name a few.
Then we also hear of modern ladies in the public eye who feel no shame in sharing their hair recovery journeys. Supermodel Ashley Graham frequently speaks on her postpartum/pregnancy alopecia. Kiera Knightley and Adriana Grande also shared their difficulties after excessively dying their hair and how they approached the extension ponytail and wigs as temporary solutions.
Alopecia, however, starts presenting itself quietly, and the experience is anything but pleasant or desired public. People use hats, extensions, and other methods to keep their struggles personal, which is why we have a whole month dedicated to TALKING ABOUT ALOPECIA in full detail.
THERE IS NO SHAME IN THE HAIR GROWTH GAME.
Statistically speaking, there are millions of people being affected by some form of hair loss all at the same moment. Unfortunately, not all alopecia are the same; in fact, we have nearly a handful of types in this list alone! In this month celebrating Alopecia Areata awareness, we thought we could share some info that the experts have shared with us so you can start understanding which type might be affecting you.
