Welcome to Love, Alopecia!
If you’re here, you’re most likely one of the millions of people in the world who make up our alopecian community.
Perhaps someone in your family, maybe your child or partner or sibling, has joined the alopecian tribe.
Maybe you work with someone with alopecia, perhaps as a hairdresser or wigmaker or doctor or psychologist or teacher, and you want to know more about alopecia in order to help them the best you can.
Love, Alopecia is a place for all people who make up the alopecia community. If that sounds like you, you can keep up to date by following us for email updates, or by following AAAF on Facebook.
This is a place for the sharing of stories, information, advice and support. Our writers are all experts on alopecia – we’ve been living with it for years.
Stef has been a Support Ambassador with AAAF for several years. Stef has hosted numerous awareness talks at schools, conferences, and business events and has featured on TV and radio, all aimed at improving awareness of alopecia through education. She has had alopecia since she was six years old.
Georgia (AKA George) is also Support Ambassador, in addition to her main role as the AAAF Secretary. Her background is in media and business, and has had alopecia for as long as she can remember.
Our other writers are, well, you. We have Guest Writers from within all different areas of the alopecia community. They may be blog writers already or may just have a single story to tell, but all are a vital part of what we do here.
Our philosophy is about approaching alopecia as an experience and as an identity, not as a disorder to be overcome. As well as discussing alopecia-specific experiences and advice, we focus on wider issues of image, identity and lifestyle. We’ll be posting articles, opinions and stories centred around the many ways AA affects our lives and impacts who we are.
This project has been proudly developed and supported by the Australia Alopecia Areata Foundation Inc.
