Bald Girls Do Lunch is an American non-profit organisation created specifically for women with alopecia areata, the autoimmune disease that affects the hair growth cycle on the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes and body. They provide support, education and a forum for women suffering from the condition to meet and share experiences.
The organisation has recently been donated a $4000 wig by Karen Peterik, a representative from Freedom Wigs. The wig is being put up in a raffle. Tickets can be purchased at their next event in Illinois, USA. But if that’s a little far for you to travel, you can enter via their website www.baldgirlsdolunch.org. While science has not found a cure-all for alopecia areata, there are ways of helping the hair growth cycle return to normal. The Belgravia Centre has successfully treated alopecia areata using hair loss treatments supplemented with hair growth boosters. The progress our clients have made can be seen below.
Unfortunately the most severe form of alopecia, alopecia universalis (total loss of scalp and body hair including eyebrows and eyelashes) is, as yet, untreatable. However, some people with alopecia universalis will regain their scalp and body hair as it can be a short-term, acute condition. It is not, however, possible to predict when and to what extent the hair will re-grow.
If you are suffering from alopecia areata and would like to discuss the use of hair loss treatments for your condition, please call the Belgravia Centre on 020 7730 6666 or message the clinic. Alternatively, complete the online diagnostic form and a treatment advisor will be in touch.
