Looking For A Hair Loss Support Group

Looking For A Hair Loss Support Group

Question:

I am 40 years old and I am bald. I began losing my hair in March of 2007. It has grown a little then falls out, it falls out all over. Starts out in patches then completely goes bald (which is where I am now). I just would like to know I’m not alone. I am looking for a support group in my area.
Thanks,
Gina

Answer:

Dear Gina,

You are definitely not alone. There are unfortunately an extremely high number of women who suffer with hair loss. According to The American Hair Loss Association that number is around 40 million. That makes you very much NOT alone.

As far as support groups, currently the only ones I am aware of are being done by a non profit organization called “Bald Girls Do Lunch.

Their next event is being held in New York City on October 7th and is called “Alopecia Areata Day of Beauty.” The fundraiser is being held to raise funds to support their lunch meetings across the country.

After that the next meetings will be held in Scottsdale, AZ on October 13 and then Philadelphia, PA on November 3rd.
