Alopecia primarily affects the head in two ways- not only in its appearance, but also the mindset.
I spoke to psychologist Dr Nigel Hunt where we discussed who is affected the most when it comes to Alopecia, and how women can overcome this psychological damage.
Despite there being methods to overcome the psychological effects of Alopecia, this doesn’t shy away from the fact that there is no official medical cure, and a lack of awareness of this disease amongst the general public. From a recent survey I carried out (amongst 60 people) these are the results that support the fact this is a forgotten disease.
