Female Celebrities With Hair Loss

Female Celebrities With Hair Loss
November 11th, 2010

female celebrities with hair lossAll women with hair loss want to know “why don’t female celebrities have hair loss?” Hollywood actresses have thick beautiful hair and they never have bad hair days. What gives? Why is life so unfair – they have the money, the fame, and the perfect hair. I used to think this, but I’ve come to realize celebrities have hair loss too – but we usually don’t know about it. And this is a good thing because there is hope for all of us to have red carpet hair if we choose it (or can afford it).

You would think celebrities would experience hair loss more than the average person. They live hectic lives, most actresses and models are very thin so they obviously don’t eat a lot, and many of them wear hair extensions which can cause permanent hair loss from traction alopecia. My guess is that most female celebrities start wearing supplemental hair at the first sign of a problem. They have enough money to go to the top hair places, and get whatever hairpiece, topper, or wig they need. You rarely hear about female celebrities wearing hair (other than extensions) on a regular basis, so I am assuming there are hush-hush people they must see. And hair extensions are so ubiquitous with celebs now that half of them wear them to make their hair thicker and longer. Hair extensions, though, can’t cover up hair loss on the top of your head very well.

Female Celebrities with Hair Loss:
With all that said, there are some famous women with visible hair loss. I am not trying to be mean by writing about them here – I just want everyone to know that you aren’t alone! As bad as I feel that anyone has to experience hair loss, at least celebrities have the money they need to see the top nutritionists, hair loss specialists, and hair replacement gurus.

Adrianne Curry – Recently I saw this “America’s Next Top Model” winner on the show “Pretty Hurts” and her hair now looks like it’s thinning. I never noticed it until this year.

Amber Rose – She’s not actual balding, but she shaves her head as a fashion statement.

Bethenny Frankel – On the few episodes I’ve caught of her various reality shows, I noticed she has a slightly wide part in the front and a little bald spot. This could be because she recently had a baby, but I think I recall seeing the slight thinning before she was pregnant. Her hair looks thick overall, but I’ve also read she wears weaves and extensions (at least sometimes).

Britney Spears– She’s one of the most famous celebrities, and I’m pretty sure she has hair loss. At first I thought she was just crazy for shaving her head, but then I started to wonder if it’s because of her hair loss. Not a day goes by that I am not tempted to shave all my hair off and say “fuck it.” Britney has worn extensions for years and I think it’s caused traction alopecia all over her head. She also has a receding hairline and temples. With all that money – why doesn’t she pay to get better hair?

Chelsea Handler – The comedian has a slightly wide part – nothing major, but it’s enough to distract me every time I see her on TV.

Cher – we all know Cher wears wigs. What does her real hair look like? I have no idea.

Christina Hendricks – Her natural hair is very thin, but she almost always wears hair extensions or hairpieces on the top of her head. She sports different hairpiece toppers all the time in her different red carpet photos. Many of them are quite obvious.

Chynna Phillips – The Wilson Phillips singer has always had a high hairline (in the 90s you couldn’t tell because she had bangs). I recently saw her on Oprah, and her hairline had receded and was really high. Her mom, actress Michelle Phillips, was also on Oprah, and in recent years she has developed extremely noticeable androgenetic alopecia.

Debra Messing – There are pictures of her with a wide part. This could have been temporary – shedding after having a baby. Or she could have started wearing supplemental hair. Her hair now looks how mine used to look before it all fell out!

Dolly Parton – she’s been wearing wigs since she first got famous. Again I have no idea what her real hair looks like.

Elizabeth Berkley – her hairline has receded an inch or two since her “Saved By The Bell” days. Otherwise she doesn’t appear to have hair loss, but her hair used to be so thick that even if she lost 30% of it, it would be hard to notice. I compare myself to her because we used to have the same hair, and my hairline is creeping up too.

Erin Moran – from “Happy Day.” I saw her on a show a few years ago and she had obvious overall hair thinning and genetic hair loss.

Fergie– Fergie has a wide part and overall hair thinning. Pictures came out of her last year that show that she’s either experiencing Telogen Effluvium (temporary hair loss), or Androgenetic Alopecia (genetic hair loss). She usually wears tons of hair extensions to make her hair thicker and longer, but she hasn’t disguised her wide part. The picture shown here is a still from her new fragrance commercial. She is apparently comfortable with her hair!

Gail Porter– she’s a Scottish TV presenter that has Alopecia Areata and then Alopecia Totalis, and she has brought awareness to the condition by doing interviews bald. Currently her hair has grown back, but it could fall out again in the future.

Halle Berry – I’ve seen pictures of her where she had really noticeable hair loss. I don’t know if it was temporary and it grew back, because her hair looks great now like it usually does – is it fake?

Helena Bonham Carter – I have seen older pictures of her with mild genetic-looking thinning on the top and front of her hair. Now she normally wears giant hair pieces or wigs when she’s at award shows or in movies. It’s hard to say what her real hair looks like for sure, but I suspect it’s thinning.

Hillary Clinton – Normally her hair looks fine, but when she wears it pulled back in a banana clip or scrunchie on top of her head, you can see she has extremely receding temples.

Jaclyn Smith – I think I remember seeing her with thinning hair a few years back. She also has a line of wigs and hairpieces, which makes me suspect she has a special interest in supplemental hair.

Kathy Hilton – Paris Hilton’s mom has thinning hair on the top of her head, which I spotted on “The World According To Paris Hilton.”

Khloe Kardashian – She has a wide part, and wears hair extensions for length, and maybe to add volume to her hair. I read that she had telogen effluvium years ago due to stress, but I’m not sure if her current hair loss is genetic or not.

Kimberly Stewart – Rod Stewart’s socialite daughter has had thinning hair for several years. The newest pictures I’ve seen of her show her wearing either a topper, clip-on bangs, or a wig.

Kim Zolciak – from “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” She wears a wig. On the first season of the show I thought her wig looked pretty obvious and tacky, but what she wears now looks really nice. I’m not sure if she has hair loss, or if she just wants to have Hollywood hair all the time.

Lady Gaga – We all know that she loves to wear wigs, and while her natural hair always looks fine to me, she’s just revealed publicly that her hair is falling out due to dyeing her dark hair blonde all the time. I don’t know if her hair is falling out at the root or breaking from damage, but if she lays off the blonde, she might be lucky and see a full recovery.

Lara Flynn Boyle– I’ve seen pictures of her with a wide part – either from telogen effluvium or androgenetic alopecia.

Lisa Marie Presley – I just saw her on Oprah, and she has a receding hairline and frontal thinning. I had never noticed any hair loss before her recent appearance.

Megan Fox – There is a lot of talk about Megan Fox having hair loss, but I never noticed it on her. However I did find one photo that shows her with thinning hair on the sides and front of her hair – maybe from wearing hair extensions.

Milla Jovovich – I rented her 2011 movie “Faces in the Crowd” and didn’t notice the faces in the movie changing because I was so focused on her wide part, which I never noticed her having before.

Miss Delaware Kayla Martell– she has Alopecia Areata and proves that you can still win beauty contests without having perfect bio hair. She wears wigs, but is also comfortable showing off her shaved head to bring awareness to alopecia.

Naomi Campbell– She has significant hair loss in the front and sides, probably from traction alopecia. Normally she wears supplemental hair, but there are pictures of her with hair loss.

Neve Campbell – I’ve never noticed her having any hair issues, but the “Party of Five” actress says when she was 23 she suffered from Alopecia Areata due to stress, and her hair came out in patches. I don’t know if she’s had recurring bouts of AA since then or not.

Nicole Scherzinger – This Pussycat Doll was just on “American Idol” where I noticed she has thinning in the front of her hair.

Pamela Anderson – I have seen a few pictures of Pam with thinning hair in the front, but now I can’t find them, so I’m not totally sure about her hair. She does have a high hairline, which has gotten slightly higher since her “Baywatch” days. She’s been wearing tons of extensions for years, so I’m not sure if that’s caused traction alopecia. Again I’m not completely sure she has hair loss.

Paula Abdul – When she was first on “American Idol” I noticed she had thin hair on the top of her head. That didn’t last long – she then started wearing different hairpieces on the show ever since the first season. Did you ever notice she would have different hair almost every week?

Sarah Michelle Gellar – On her new TV show “Ringer,” you can see she has a slightly wide part, and it looks like she also has extensions to make her hair thicker and longer.

Sarah Palin – when she first because famous I couldn’t believe how thick and healthy her hair looked. I was ready to move to Alaska! Now I’m starting to think she’s been wearing hairpieces this whole time. She’s said her hair has been falling out from stress but it’s thicker than ever…

Selma Blair – I haven’t conclusively noticed her having hair loss, but after having her first baby she’s reported experiencing post-partum hair loss, and worries about going bald. Experiencing temporary hair loss after having a baby is totally normal, unless your hair doesn’t eventually come back as thick as it was pre-pregnancy.

Serena Williams – Usually this tennis star’s hair looks great, but recent photos have come out where she has a noticeable bald spot on the top of her head. I don’t know if it’s from Traction Alopecia or Alopecia Areata, or something else. I’ve always wondered if she wore hair and though it must suck playing professional tennis and having to deal with wearing hair at the same time – and normally she wears big headbands during her matches.

Sherri Shepherd – I give immense credit to this “The View” co-host for talking openly about her hair. On one episode of “The View” she took off her wig to reveal extensive hair loss (either from Traction Alopecia, Androgenetic Alopecia, or Cicatricial Alopecia). You can probably find this clip on YouTube. She wasn’t embarrassed at all about revealing her real hair, and she seems totally secure with her hair (maybe because her wigs look so great).

Star Jones – I never noticed Star’s hair when she was on “The View” but she said that she wore wigs the whole time – I would have had no idea. I read that she experienced hair loss after having gastric bypass surgery, but I don’t know what her real hair looks like. On “Celebrity Apprentice” she wears different wigs in every scene, and that’s what clued me into her wig-wearing.

Tiffany – I saw a recent photo of the 80s pop singer Tiffany, and noticed she now has a wide part.

Tina Turner – I was shocked when I found out Tina Turner has been wearing wigs for years. Some people say she has hair loss, and others say she just wears wigs to have perfect hair.

Tori Amos – A reader pointed out that she’s been dealing with genetic hair loss for years, and I recently wrote about Tori’s hair loss more extensively. She’s one of the few celebs to be photographed with really obvious hair loss. Now she wears wigs (although some people say they still see her without wigs sometimes).

Tyra Banks – She wears lace front wigs all the time – you’ll never see her in public without one either, except the one time she went wig-less on her show. She has a really high forehead.

Wendy Williams – I’ve seen pictures of her without a wig and her hair isn’t that bad, but she still wears wigs all the time. She has some really nice wigs, and I love that she wears lots of different ones, and that she’s not afraid to tell everyone about them!

As you can see, most of these female celebrities don’t have severe hair loss – it’s mild to moderate. Why? I think once it gets any worse celebs must immediately start wearing hair and never look back. I can’t imagine only regular people experience severe hair loss – it’s just not logical. I know celebs wear wigs and hairpieces all the time in movies, but half the time I can’t even tell. For example Christina Aguilera wears a wig the whole time in the new movie “Burlesque” that is coming out. Oh and Lady Gaga wears wigs all the time just because she loves them.

I tell myself I can only come up with a handful of female celebrities with known hair loss because there are really good fake hair options out there – so good that no one would ever suspect. What upsets me is that I know these solutions are really expensive:( I also wonder how many celebrities have been able to find a cure for their hair loss with enough money to go to the best doctors and do all the expensive tests most of us can’t afford. There are some other female celebrities that are rumored to have hair loss issues, but I can’t tell for sure – Renee Zellweger, Victoria Beckman, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kate Bosworth, Kate Beckinsale, Leah Remini, and Nicole Kidman. I’ve also noticed a lot of current fashion models have really thin hair and wide parts. I guess it’s not a surprise since they are so thin and they have their hair styled on an almost daily basis. Eva Longoria has mentioned publicly that she likes to wear wigs, and you can see her in lots of different wigs if you look for them. I don’t know if she actually has hair loss or not. Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce also rumored to have tons of expensive wigs, but I haven’t seen any pictures of them actually show hair loss.

What female celebrities do you know of that have hair loss issues?

    I have noticed Fergie’s hair loss and I think she just went back to blonde, which makes it harder to see now. I know a lot of celebrities wear hair extensions and wigs, etc. but it is hard to tell. I really wish I had the money to just pay whoever I would need to for really nice hair.

    Hi Jeni,
    Have you ever checked your iron levels? I am prone to anemia and when my iron levels go down I start loosing more hair. Another source of unexplained hair loss may be suppressed thyroid. If you work with endocrinologist ask for a complete thyroid panel that includes TSH, total T3, total T4, free T3, free T4 and reverse T3 (rT3).
    Also there are some natural DHT blockers like zinc and saw palmetto. Have you researched them as alternatives?

      Yes I’ve had my iron levels checked. My ferritin is always low, and I’ve been taking iron supplements for years – I still can’t get it higher than about 40, so that could be contributing to my hair loss. I take it with vitamin C and lysine, and I’ve been eating red meat lately (I rarely ate it before). I’ve had all my thyroid levels checked because I have a lot of symptoms of hypothyroid. I was put on Armour thyroid for a year, but it didn’t help, and even at the lowest dose I became really jittery and had to stop taking it. I’ve been doing other things to try to support my thyroid without medication. I take zinc and saw palmetto. I’ve been researching hair loss for 9 years – I’ve tried just about everything and continue to research and try new stuff.

    Tori Amos has been experiencing hair loss for years- you could really see it on her “Welcome to Sunny Florida” concert DVD. She wears wigs now and she still looks lovely. But the trained eye can tell they’re wigs.

      I just googled her and see what you mean – I like her new wigs with the bangs. My friend used to be obsessed with Tori and met her like 10 times, so she has tons of pictures of Tori. I never noticed the hair loss before on Tori because this was before I was obsessed with hair. Ohh I wish for the old days when I didn’t notice the hairline of every celebrity!

        December 6, 2010 at 1:39 am

        And now I am officially obsessed with Tori’s hair after looking at pictures of her throughout the years. I have the exact same hair as her, and the exact same pattern of hair loss.

          This was a great blog post. I am struggling with unknown reasons for hair loss (in the midst of testing and appointments) and to check out so many of my favorite pretty women also having this problem, has lent a bit of ease. I’m really young and I’ve become obsessed with checking other women’s hairlines, too. A friend recently told me to get rid of my dark hair in favor of red or blonde. Ouch. Thanks for your post.

    my hair loss got better after i changed to a gluten and dairy free diet. One of the side effects of a gluten intolerance is hair loss. I noticed a difference in the amount of hair in my shower drain within 48 hours!

    hey, have you seen this? I think it’s a great way to cover it up, though of course the coloring made it look like hell. My hair’s black so I can get the same color part right. If only I could find sb to create it for me SIIIIGH

      That’s interesting. I wonder if you can get a hair piece that just attaches in the front like that? That’s how I wore my hair a lot until last summer, when the front of my hair started to thin and recede, and now I can’t do the front to back “comb over.” On a side note, I think Fergie wears a topper hair piece now!

  • K
    May 20, 2011 at 12:45 pm

    I noticed several times Fergie having the wide thin part, then when she performed at the Superbowl, her part was tight and her hair looked absolutely amazing. If it was a topper it cost thousands because it mimiced growing hair so well it was amazing. I just thought she figured out a way to get her hair back. I just want to know their secret. I guess we will hear about it in the next 10 years…….

    I’m glad you mentioned Bethanny Frankel she was almost completely bald on top when she did the interview on the last season with the housewives. She has been losing hair well before she was pregnant. I did think it was telogen but it has gone on too long for that. She is however maintaining it well with the assistance of extension they even show them applying them on the show. She still looks very attractive.

    I would like more celebrities to admit they have hair loss problems. I’ve had hair loss problems since I was 10 years old and now I’m 18 with a shaved head. I don’t know why some of them are scared to admit it, I’m not. Yes, I’ve had my thyroid and iron levels checked. My iron levels are up and I was anemic when I went vegan. My thyroid is completely fine.
    NOTE: When I was 10 years old I hit puberty, my thick hair began to form a wide hair line. I was also an omnivore. So don’t blame my lifestyle.
    I love being bald and no one notices my wigs, but I love crazy colorful wigs.

    My favourite actress Dame Helen Mirren has severely thinning hair as I witnessed watching her in Prime Suspect a British tv series in the 90’s. I actually got the dvds so I could pause on the scenes to be certain. I don’t want anyone to have thin hair but have to saay I was quietly chuffed to be in such good company . So theres another for your list

    start taking probiotics, stop taking iron, drink aloe, ginger, take b100 and only take vitamin c. Also get as much natural sun vit d as you can and you should hopefully see a ton of baby hairs.

    Your really need to check out Kristen Stewart she did an interview with E on the latest Twilight and her hair was incredibly patchy. There is no doubt in my mind that she has hair loss, because pictures pre twilight showed shorter hair that you could see through on top. And the interview that she recently did on E while she still had in extensions you could see patches of her scalp. Everyone comments on her disposition and demeanor and I think it is very related to her hair loss. They do an amazing job in the Twilight series making her hair look thick and luscious. I just want to know her secret. She is still beautiful, and I admire her going on interviews without covering it up but would absolutely love to know how they make her hair look sooooo good in Twilight. You literally can’t tell there is any supplement hair.

    • Jeni - Hair Loss Hell
      November 18, 2011 at 2:29 am

      I haven’t ever noticed Kristen Stewart having hair loss, but now I will pay special attention to her when I see her on TV. I just googled her and couldn’t find any pictures of her that showed it. Maybe I’ll see her on TV this week since the new Twilight movie is coming out. There are some actresses that wear wigs or hair extensions where it’s obvious, but there are so many where you can’t tell at all they’re wearing supplemental hair.

  • jsm
    November 21, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    I also noticed Kristen Stewart. Her hair seems really thin on the sides in some of the promo stills for Twilight. I also noticed Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean seems to have thinning hair too.

    this is a fascinating topic, not a cruel one. how fantastic that we live in an age where hair loss can be tackled in many ways. i’m surprised by some hollywood gals with thinning hair still try to sport do’s that do NOT cover this problem. I noticed Dedee Pfeiffer (Michelle’s sister) has really bad thinning hair! Lisa Marie P and Megan F are blondes that dye darker, so it appears there is hair loss but its mostly the light grown out and looking like scalp…

    Kristen Stewart definitely has thinning hair. You can see it in various photos dating from the days of filming the Runaways (when she was no longer using extensions). Even with the extensions for Snow White her hair looks thin and patchy on top.

  • PixieCut

    Kathy Griffin. I am convinced she wears supplemental hair. Her hairline went almost all the way back to her ears when she was in *high school*. She always has that bang thing going on, and I don’t think a stylist could do a decent cut by pulling hair forward from the middle of her crown. I have lost my hairline in the past 2 years. The last time I was photoed with my own hair, in 2008, I was wearing a “female combover”. I can’t even do that now. I am 53. My brother has more hair than I do. I wear the female equivalent of a toupee to work every day. Menopause sucks.

    • Jeni - Hair Loss Hell
      December 23, 2011 at 12:26 am

      I have wondered about Kathy Griffin because her hair always looks really good, and at the least she wears hair extensions. I will have to look for old photos of her. My hairline is rapidly disappearing as well, and I’m nowhere near menopause. Hair loss sucks!

    How about famous female fashion designers who are wearing fake hair: Betsey Johnson has had obvious fake hair for years, but Norma Kamali started wearing a wig recently. Old photos of her show thinning hair. I wish they would tell us where they get their hair. Why is it impolite to ask them in interviews? Why is this topic so taboo, such a big secret?

  • lilly
    February 23, 2012 at 5:33 am

    I always thought Kristen Stewart’s hair was naturally full. Even with that awful Joan Jett shag it looked really thick and full. It’s just recently that I have noticed it looking thinner. Perhaps the extensions she wore in Breaking Dawn and Snowwhite and the Huntsman have taken their toll. Or stress from working too much. Still, she’s very young so her scalp will probably recuperate.

      With 5 million people with alopecia in the US it is a shame that the insurances cover about $100 per year in wigs, and some insurances don’t even cover anything. Do they have any ideia how much a wig costs? There should be a way to make this change.

    • Girlygirl

    Hi Jeni,
    I feel like I am in Hair Loss Hair Hell as well and am so glad I ran across your information. I have been losing hair for 5 years now. It started after caring for my very ill mother for several years, then the trauma of her death, 6 months later my mother -in-law died after a lengthy illness, and in 2009 my 55 year old brother committed suicide. The doctors all felt my hairloss could be attributed to all the stress I had been under for several years. But after 5 -6 years it is still falling out and I am beyond frustrated and depressed.
    I do have thyroid disease and take Synthroid (since 1987) but in never caused hairloss before now and my ferritn levels runs 13 to 20. I had a dermatologist tell me that ferrtin levels must be at least 70 to stop hairloss and that 100 is the optimum level for hair growth. Like you I can’t seem to get mine above 40. I am a retired nurse, and back many years ago doctors would give you a whopping dose of iron trhough the vein

  • Judy
    May 10, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Sorry Jeni, I guess my post was too long or perhaps I hit submit by accident. The last point I was making regarding iron being given directly into the vein to quickly bring Ferritin levels up, seems to be a thing of the past. Insurance companies no longer want to pay for it, although Iron is very inexpensive. I applaud you for the research you have done and your willingness to share with all of us. I will keep checking in for updates! Judy

    Katy Perry has definite AGA or TE. I have at least 25 pictures in my “FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF, DARN IT!” folder. Google ‘Katy Perry casual’ to see her without extensions or a wig. It is so darn obvious. She looks awesome with extensions and wigs, though. Heck, she looks awesome with hair loss. And wears the fun ones as if they are commonplace! But even with extensions, she sometimes doesn’t fill in her part. Jessie J usually wears wigs, too, but you can find a couple of pictures of her without them and her loss is pretty obvious. Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are my favorite wig wearers, though. Even if these ladies feel bad about their loss, I wish I could tell them how much these random pictures on Google help me out when I’m sad. :)

    I noticed on the sides of Kim Kardashian’s head her temples were noticeably thin. Kim wears extensions and wigs all the time. I think she might be filling in her temples with dark hair paint now. Angelina Jolie looks like her hairline is receding. Her forehead has gotten even bigger. Angelina has always worn extensions and wigs, too. Jessica Alba looks to have a receding hairline, and I noticed a bald spot on the back of her head. Kate Beckinsale and Victoria Beckham did have bald spots as well. Jennifer Lopez never had thick hair, but her hair looks even thinner now.

    I have hair loss i have had it since i was 13.I am now 36.I’m going to buy a wig.I have had a hard time dealing with it.I have had hair restoration, but i just have to much hair loss.It still looks bad.It got worse a few years ago when i went on a diet.It started coming out. This is after i had the hair surgery.It still hasn’t came back in.I take iron pills,water pills,multivitamins and hair skin and nails pills everyday.Nothing has helped me.It is so noticeable.I just feel so ugly all the time.I hate the way i look.I have a facebook and use old pitures of myself. I see everyone else posting pictures of themselves and it’s so depressing.I have been made fun of for the way my hair looks.People say words don’t hurt but they do.I’m so afraid when i buy a wiglet or wig people will be able to notice.I just can’t take anymore humiliation.Whatever i get i know i want real hair.I just don’t know anyone personally with hair like mine.I feel for all of you.I can spot fake hair so easily and it makes me wonder is it just me because i have this or is it that way for everyone? This has just taken over my life.I use to be fun and want to go places and do things.Now i just sit home.I just don’t understand why this happened to me or any of us.It’s so unfair! I appreciate this blog so much.I know i am not alone.God bless all of you women.Stay strong.We all have a special connection.Know one else could possibly understand what we go through on a daily basis.I also wanted to add to this list.I have noticed Jwow from Jersey Shore looks as if she is thinning on top and in the bang area.I noticed it on her new show with Snooki.

      I’ve had hair loss since I was 10 years old and I shaved my hair off at 17 years old. (I have female pattern baldness). I have been wearing wigs for 2 years now (19 years old). Everyone has complimented me on my wig and it’s not even real hair, I get synthetic wigs. It’s better than being told, “You’re going bald.”

    Hello, I have been reading all of your comment. I feel the same. I couldn’t help but see myself in the comment you have written, especially about noticing other women’s hair and how beautiful and thick it is. It just makes me cry when I think it will only get worse. :(

    Everytime I talk to people I think that this is what they’re thinking about me.

    Angie I understand exactly how you feel.
    I don’t know if I could be open about it to other people, I feel so ashamed. But it’s true, it is not my fault, but yet it is happenning to me.
    There are times when I am positive and try not to let it bother me, but if I see someone I haven’t seen in a while and they look at me in a funny way, I know what they’re thinking: What’s changed about me…oh, yes it’s the hair. Where has it gone?

    I don’t want to wear a wig as I think it will only make matters worse. And at the end of the day I will still have to take it off.

    I first had bald spots when I was about 21, went away and I was fine till I was about 56, then started all over on a regular basis. I know stress can bring it on, but this last time was different, just happened, only much loss on top and crown, not spots. I cry all the time, did buy a wiglet, but feel like everyone can tell. I go to the dermatologist to get a shot, when it first happened, every 2 weeks, now I’m at once a month. Not sure what all is in the shot, will find out and post it. He gave me a strong one with the latest loss. I’m going to ask him this Wednesday if it’s going to grow back this time, it always did in the past, but this time it’s different. I can’t see the very top and with any grey coming in it’s hard to tell. My husband won’t tell me the truth because he knows how upset I get. I’m going to order another wiglet, it’s hard to find cute short ones. I can’t stand the feeling of a wig on my head and it’s hot, no matter what in the summer.

    It helps to know there are others out there. My Aunt and my cousin and her daughter had it, I always wondered why they always wore them, back then they simply blamed it on stress, now it has a name, Alopecia Ariata.

    Ya know, you are obsessed & I don’t mean to be rude, like you, pointing out everyone’s flaws because you’re so focused that you think absolutely nothing about the person, just strictly their “flawed” hair. Is it possible that there are no flaws at all & you see what you want to see??? And these are celebrities that you’re talking about. It’s never occurred to you that half of the “high hairlines” & “thinning sides” are results of recent or past surgeries ie: face lifts & such. Stop trying to scare the crap out of normal women who want or wear hair extensions. They have been for decades & they don’t need you scaring the hell out of them because you can’t or don’t want to.

    I too am so pleased to find this blog, it honestly can feel like your the only woman going through this! I have female pattern balding and am starting to think about wearing a wig! It still takes me ages to come to terms with it and sometimes I still block it out and think that my hair won’t get worse (even though it will)! I also try and think things like ‘at least I’m not really ill’ but sometimes it does get a bit too much. This page has made me feel so much better, thank you ladies x

    I read Renee Zellweger is also going through hair loss. I think she even had an interview one time with People magazine admitting that she has been losing hair.

    I agree with one of the comments above. I feel a little bit of comfort knowing that there are millions of women who are experiencing the same issue. I hope my hair will not get too thin that I am forced to wear a wig someday.

    Some men look hot bald and shaved and it can be opposite for females. Fortunately I have not had a problem till now and fret the thought of loosing hair and going bald. Dont know what will I do in case I loose hair. I dont mind grey hair and infact like them.

    Why not look into FUE and have your own real hair growing out of your head
    …most places will set up a payment plan to fit your needs. Having real hair is priceless, wigs never feel real no matter how good they are…jmho
