I Have Alopecia. Now What?

I was recently diagnosed with Alopecia and I didn't know what it even was?  After doing a whole bunch of online research and talking with my doctor and subsequently with a Dermatologist, I decided to document my experience and keep a journal. Vern Cole and his lovely wife Patsy have very graciously allowed me to share it here, because I thought that if I didn't know what Alopecia was, there were probably a whole lot of other women who didn't know either, and while I started out scared and feeling alone and very vulnerable, I ended up in a very wonderful place of confidence and hope.

Hair Transplant Surgery: When Is The Best Time?

Hair Transplant Surgery: When Is The Best Time? The other day I was reading a forum on hair loss and the question was posed, regarding surgical hair restoration, “when is the ideal time to get a hair transplant?” If one person is asking this question, there are probably thousands who are wondering the same thing.

FUE Hair Transplant Surgery

Comparison of Hair Transplantation Methods HRI currently offers two methods of hair transplant follicle extractions: the Strip Method and FUE Hair Transplant Surgery (Follicular Unit Extraction). When considering Medical Hair Transplantation, it is important to be well educated on the pros and cons of each of these methods before making a decision as to which is right for you. The Strip Hair Transplantation Method The Doctor removes a strip of tissue from the donor site that contains the hair follicles. The scalp is then brought back together and sutured (sutures remain in the donor site for 10-14 days before being removed). The tissue that has been removed is dissected down to “grafts” or follicular units containing one to four hairs [...]
