Alopecia post transplant
After my transplant surgery I developed alopecia (hair loss). I found its actually quite common, ranging from thinning hair to losing it all and going bald. I ended up losing quite a lot of hair, and now wear extensions and wigs regularly. My hair is slowly growing back in - an entirely different color and texture than before!
This month is alopecia awareness month and I'm partnering with a local boutique in my area for their more than her hair alopecia awareness campaign. When i first lost my hair it was a huge deal. it was one of my worst fears going into transplant. Now I'm far more confident, and love my fake hair. Crazy colors, lengths, it's all a fun part of my self expression.
If you lost your hair due to transplant, what toll did it take on your self esteem and how did you begin practicing self acceptance and expression
