Talking about alopecia?

December 26th, 2012 by Chassin

Talking about anything to anyone in a close relationship can be tough….often the closer the connection the harder to get the conversation started. Follow the sage advice of  “How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk” to open up a lifestyle of better communications than you ever thought possible. It’s not always about alopecia….it’s about matching your message to the listening style of the recipient.

Your colors and you

December 25th, 2012 by Chassin

Use alopecia as a reason to get to know your best colors for clothing and accessories. The boost to your self confidence will lift not only that day, but every day.

TSA options

December 22nd, 2012 by Chassin

There are a bunch of options so try the ones that fit your mood and comfort zone.

#1 If you live bald, go bald.

#2 If you travel bald, but wear wigs for comfort to/from or in the airport itself, plop on a wig to walk through screening and then take it off. Old wigs are good for this purpose. Stuff’m in your carry on.

#3 If you travel and fly with a scarf or a scarf/hat layered effect, take it off at screening, put it in the bin and walk through bald. No one cares about you or your head. Fetch your scarf from the bin at the end of the conveyer and put it on because believe it or not….this is a normal thing to do!

#4 However, if you want to be stopped, patted down and delayed by the procedures of TSA then make a big deal about it, tell everyone at screening, act  nervous and  draw attention to yourself that you have on a wig.

#5 It is entirely normal to have hair in a passport photo and none and your head and walk through screening as if this, too, is 100% normal. TSA is looking at your eyes not your head.

#6 Flying long haul and horizontal in a flat bed across the world? Take off your hair. Put on a comfy sleep hat. Have a really nice snooze and arrive refreshed!

#7 Have a great vacation wherever your travels take you!
