Growing up in a culture, ethnicity where hair is praised and considered our “crown and glory”, I’m glad that bald beauty is embraced now. #BlackPanther has helped, significantly. As baldies, it takes much courage to put ourselves on the forefront- regardless of opinion. While some embrace our unique look, others display ignorance by giving back-handed compliments or creating pun-intended jokes. #automaticblock 🙅🏾♀️
Words hurt regardless of my strength, but that’s why I keep showing up everyday. This condition has taught me how to handle people, the true definition of beauty, humility, and so much more.
Baldies, keep showing up. 👩🏾🦲🤎

Alopecia Chronicles 💙💙💙
So when I first decided to lose my wig and rock my bald head back in 2015, my biggest fear was going to work as a flight attendant. I kept thinking “What are people going to say?” “What are they going to think of me?” I remember the first time I walked through the airport. I had such bad anxiety I started to cry. I mean I was balling. I will never forget the kind American Airlines gate agent who came up to me and asked if everything was ok. Everything was not ok. I proceeded to cry and tell her that I have Alopecia and this was the first time I’m wearing my hair bald. I’m scared, nervous, and afraid. She gave me a huge hug, and told me I was beautiful and brave and everything was going to be ok. She smiled and sent me on my way and kept reassuring me it was going to be fine. I really appreciated her for taking the time to console and encourage me. It meant a lot that day.
I remember walking toward my gate to work my flight. The stares from people gave me such high anxiety. I had these uncontrollable thoughts of negative reactions. I had to work the flight and there was no turning back. The gate agent smiled and greeted me. I boarded the plane and the captain did a double-take, looked at me, and said I love the look and introduced himself with a smile. Then I was greeted with smiles from my fellow flight attendants. I got teary-eyed and told them them the situation and they all gave me words of encouragement which I appreciated so much. The passengers greeted me with smiles and some compliments. I couldn’t believe people actually stopped and said I was an inspiration to them and they were also bald underneath their wigs or suffered some form of hair loss. I was shocked. You mean I wasn’t the only one? As time went on, I started to feel more comfortable in my baldness. I suddenly didn’t feel alone.
I truly appreciate my fellow flight attendants from all airlines who encouraged me to stand proud and confident my baldness. I’m forever grateful 🙏🏾♥️ ✈️
ALOPECIA AWARENESS MONTH! 💙 it is still September, and so still alopecia awareness month! I shamelessly stole this photo from Laura’s Instagram (@relightalopecia ) and I love it! 💙 our wee #Baldiesatthebalmoral trip was amazing! I feel kind of sad it is over…… 💙 I really love this photo! We just whipped our headwear odd before heading to the beach and garden centre, and got a quick snap outside the hotel @thebalmoral 💙
Alopecia is not the same for everyone - the pattern of loss physically is always different, and while ma y of us experience such similar emotions - we can all feel very different, and we all handle things very differently. 💙 whether you have bald photos or do not…… it doesn’t speak to your acceptance, or lack of…….. 💙
You may see people posting bald selfies….. but that doesn’t mean you have to, nor does it mean one person is any more or less than another…… it simply means they posted a photo - that is the extent of it 💙 why am I ranting on?….. I NEVER want anyone to feel they “should,” or must post bald photos…… I never want anyone to feel any less for refusing g to do so. I do it because it helped me in my journey. If one day I find it is not something I feel good about - I’ll just not be doing it. 💙 there are plenty societal pressures. Whether to show your hair loss or not is absolutely personal. You are amazing. You. AS YOU ARE. Right now. Whether bald / wig / headwear. 💙 Just do what makes you feel good in your own skin….. that is worth more than anything. 💙

🤔A medida que se envejece se cae más el cabello, ¡Descubre el porqué! 👩🔬
💞 Casi todas las personas experimentan alguna pérdida de cabello con la edad y no solo eso… También disminuye la velocidad de crecimiento del cabello
✨ El cabello está hecho de muchas fibras de proteína. Un solo cabello tiene una vida normal de entre 2 y 7 años, posteriormente ese cabello cae y es reemplazado por uno nuevo, y a medida que se envejece las fibras de cabello se vuelven más pequeñas y tienen menos pigmento. Es así que el cabello grueso y áspero de un adulto joven se convierte con el tiempo en un cabello delgado, fino y de color claro. Asimismo, muchos folículos pilosos dejan de producir nuevos cabellos.
