Alopecia Awareness- Katie’s Story

23 Sep '16


Hi, my name is Katie.  I am 15 years old and have had Alopecia Areata since I was 12.  Most people think I have cancer because I shaved my head.  I didn’t lose all of my hair but I lost enough to not keep what I had left.  My hair would grow in and then start to fall out again in patches and then months later start to grow in again.  I first shaved my head in 8th grade and that was really hard for me.

Freshman year my mom looked into getting a hairpiece from Locks of Love and started signing me up for one.  The process was fun and exciting.  When the hairpiece came I was very pleased with the results :)

At the end of my freshman year Locks of Love invited me to a camp in Florida to meet girls  the same age as me who also have Alopecia.  The trip was absolutely amazing and I have people to connect with now which is very important to me.  Locks of Love is amazing and they have amazing people working there!
