When I was losing my hair last year, I faced a big dilemma: how to go to school without everyone staring at me? Good thing was, I had an option. I could get a wig! We searched around and found Newport Hair Loss Center, a place for people like me who are bald or going bald after alopecia or chemotherapy. There was a great selection of cool wig colors, plus I could have it any way that I wanted! The one drawback of a wig, however, is that once you make a move, you can’t wait to undo it. I’m very impressed with their quality, especially because of this: these wigs have special silicone tabs that hold the wig to my scalp, making it nearly impossible to pull the wig off by the hair. Lots of friends tried to over the next week, but none succeeded. There are many great wigs out there to help you feel comfortable with alopecia areata, and I advise you to check some out in the near future.
Since my blog, peytonpecia, does refer to turtles in its motto, I’ve decided to make my tortoises, Crystal Sprinkles and Prism Frosting, our blog mascots! This is Crystal Sprinkles.
Welcome to my webpage, a place dedicated to children with alopecia. My name is Peyton, a 10-year-old who was diagnosed with alopecia at 8. I am here to help you through, and know that we are all a community. My blog is a place where kids with alopecia can freely post their troubles, and get answers from people who care. Hopefully, all that come to this page will get the help they need and deserve.
