#AlopeciaAwarenessMonth

September 8th, 2016 by Chassin

As part of #AlopeciaAwarenessMonth I thought I would give some of my thoughts on wigs. For me wearing wigs gives me back the control that Alopecia took away from me. I love being able to have the choice and that in itself gives me confidence as I am in control again. In general I try to focus my thoughts on the areas of my life I can control, rather than things outside of my control. I love hair and make up and love to get glammed up – I see it as a way to express myself rather than as a way to fit in with other people. For anybody with #alopecia I would say wear or don’t wear whatever you feel comfortable with and don’t be pressured either way by anyone. #AlopeciaAwarenessMonth 馃摲 @chelseashoesmithphotos
