The literal definition of the word Alopecia is hair loss. Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune skin disease that attacks the hair follicles to the point where hair falls out or simply won’t grow. Alopecia does not discriminate. Anyone can have the disease, which typically shows up during early childhood. The exact cause is not known, but scientists believe that genes play a big part in the development of this condition. There is no cure but there are ways to treat it.
People from all walks of life are suffering from Alopecia. Oscar nominated actress Viola Davis revealed her struggle with this disease just a few years ago. She has been fighting the battle with Alopecia since her late twenties. The “How to Get Away with Murder” star stated that she woke up one day with prominent bald spots on her head. Eventually she lost half of the hair on her head.
Davis admits that she spent most of her life covering up her condition with wigs and not feeling like herself. Since her openness about her Alopecia she feels comfortable in her own skin and she’s now able to be exactly who she is. Approximately, 1 in 100 people suffer from Alopecia Areata. The severity of the condition varies, but the feeling of being less attractive remains the same.
