Inspired by Alopecia Awareness Month 2022, we put this list together of our favorite alopecia resources. Finding a good community and reliable information can make all the difference in a journey with hair loss.
If you haven’t yet, find us on Instagram @HairWeavon_com, where you will find information, personal stories, and products to help you through Alopecia. If you need a little confidence boost check out our Live with Abby Wren, a makeup artist whose saying is “Different is Dope.” If you are struggling with your eyebrows check out our Live with Jason at My Two Brows. If you are looking for some tips and tricks to help you work out with Alopecia, we have a Live for that. If you need some wigspriation, check out one of our many Lives showing of a selection of wigs from our top brands.
If you have Alopecia, but are not quite ready to join the Instagram community, there are a couple of podcasts all about alopecia. Paige and Kristen of Those Bald Chicks, share their experiences with Alopecia through laughter. They recently did a series of interviews with mothers who have a child with Alopecia. An endearing podcast aimed to inspire and inform.
Another great podcast is the Alopecia Connection by Frank. He uses his experience with Alopecia to shed light on the experiences of men with Alopeica.
If you choose to wear wigs or hair toppers and shop online, it can be near impossible to choose the right colour from the images online. We have filled our YouTube channel with videos of hair colours, so the next time you are struggling with the colour, check out some colour videos! You can also find videos of how to properly wash your hair pieces and videos of different wigs and cap constructions in detail.

Free Alopecia Support Products
Last but certainly not least we have two Alopecia support products available free at Hairweavon.com. Bald Barbie and the book, I Am Not My Hair.
In collaboration with Smyth’s Toy Shop in Ireland, we are able to gift this beautiful Bald Barbie Doll to any parent or little one who is experiencing hair loss or trying to understand Alopecia. There is no cost for the Bald Barbie Doll, we just ask you to pay the shipping cost. Our hope is that the bald barbie doll will represent beauty and acceptance. Our true belief is that hair or no hair, wig or bald, you are beautiful.
In collaboration with Deléna Thompson who was just four when she started losing her hair and was diagnosed with Alopecia, we are happy to gift this wonderful book that she wrote at the age of 6 to any parent or little one who is experiencing hair loss or trying to understand Alopecia. I Am Not My Hair is a heart-warming illustrated book that tells Deléna’s story, and is dedicated to all children who have ever felt different.
We hope everyone has a great Alopecia Awareness Month 2022 and has the opportunity to learn something new about Alopecia! The Alopecia community is so special, you are never alone in hair loss.
