Blog For Women With Hair Loss

 

The Women’s Hair Loss Project is one women’s journey of hair loss at a young age.  The blog was founded in 2007, as a way to deal with the overwhelming feelings of hair loss.  Although, the young women’s identity remains anonymous throughout the Web site; she states “this was just an idea I thought of while I was horribly sad and depressed about my own hair loss situation, and I knew that if there was a place where I could read about the daily dealings of another woman with hair loss, I would.”

And that is exactly what the blog has become: a place where women are encouraged to share their hair loss stories, discuss the treatment options they have undergone, share how they masked their hair loss from others, as well as share their coping techniques with other women dealing with the same situation.

Madcapz and Women With Hair Loss

Monday, July 19th, 2010

I created Madcapz when I was losing my hair from Grave’s Disease, an autoimmune disease, and couldn’t find a fun women’s cap to wear to cover my head. Madcapz women’s caps are very popular with women experiencing hair loss from various medical conditions such as chemo, Grave’s, and Alopecia Areata. Recently, there has been some new developments in tracing the genes tied to Alopecia.

Researchers have recently linked 8 genes in the development of Alopecia. Researchers said this discovery “greatly accelerated our ability to think about new drugs for patients with alopecia. It is a huge advantage.”
