Catherine - 21:
Whether I have hair or not I am always thankful for what I have, rather on concentrating on what I don't have.
Alopecia isn’t something we should feel embarrassed or ashamed about.
16, telling her story through a poem.
12, I first got AA in early 2010. It was a massive shock because it started off as just one tiny patch, and in about four weeks, it had all gone, apart from a couple of tiny patches.
hair loss is something to be embraced. I'm ready for openness; I'm ready for people to be challenged; and I'm ready for bald women to feel empowered. I don't want to spend my life merely surviving as a bald woman. I'd much prefer to live.
I’ve had ups and downs, I’ve been self conscious and I’ve been brave. I don’t know where I will be this time next year, or what my head will look like. But it’s an adventure, and its all part of my story.
Imagine you are 10 years old, and one morning you wake up to find you have a bald patch at the back of your head the size of a golf ball,this is what happened to me.

Toppik Sponsors AAAF Charity Golf Day 2013
Toppik is an all-natural,non-surgical, immediate and complete hair thickening solution.
Unlike the sprays and creams that create the illusion
of fuller hair – Toppik physically thickens your hair. The fibres are made from keratin (the same material as your hair) and cling to your existing hairs using static charges, making this suitable for androgenetic, diffuse and patchy hairloss. Adding Toppik is like using a strong hair spray; it will stay in place until your next shampoo, regardless of what you or Mother Nature throw at it.
While hair loss products are often associated with male pattern baldness, Toppik is actually suitable for Men, Women and children with varying forms of Alopecia Areata. It’s also available in nine colours, so it matches all shades of hair.
Toppik’s non-synthetic consistency gives a natural-looking appearance, even from close up. As no surgery or other medical treatment is required, Toppik is often recommended by doctors as a safe solution to hair loss.
