Alopecia Areata Awareness

Alopecia Areata is an auto-immune disorder causing one's own immune system to attack and destroy hair follicles so that the hair falls out and does not grow back. In many cases it effects not only the hair on the head, but also hair on the body, including eyebrows and eyelashes. This blog train was inspired by a designer's little girl, but I knew a girl in high school with the problem, & several of the personal support workers who work where I live have friends or family with the problem. We live in a society that values hair, often to the point of obsession, which can create self image problems for sufferers, but the loss of eyelashes is very serious, effecting eye health and safety.
