They say a woman’s hair is her crowning glory, but what happen’s when that crown starts to slip away?
To say this isn’t easy to write is an understatement. It is a very personal condition that I have spent many years hiding, trying to find a solution to and not to mention agonising and crying in front of the mirror over.
It affects more woman than you may realise and the main purpose of this blog is to highlight it, share my story, share my tips for dealing with it and hopefully and more importantly to make all you balding beauties out there feel like you are not alone.
This is how I felt, that I was alone. That it was just me who was losing my hair, feeling ugly, self deprecating and feeling as though no one could help or even understand.
Most of the people who know me may be shocked to find I am suffering from hair loss because I (hopefully) disguise it very well. Those close to me will know the crippling anxiety that losing my hair has brought on.
For someone who appears very confident and outgoing I can assure you I am not. I struggle with anxiety because of my hair loss and have many down days when I feel, putting it quite frankly, hideous and less of a woman.
I have decided I don’t want to feel like this anymore and I don’t want anyone else, male or female, in the same position to either. This blog post is the start of many to help me deal with my hair loss and show you how you can too. We can be in this together!
This is an open platform to empower us all and embrace a common affliction that although has no negative health side effects, it can cripple you mentally and take over your life if you let it.
I have, for too long and I’m not anymore.
I urge you to comment with your stories and feel free to let me know what you want me to write about.
That’s the hard part done, I think, phew.
