This Is What It Feels Like to Lose Your Hair as a Girl

Losing your hair sucks. Especially if you’re a girl. But Becky’s awesome spirit wins the day.

Becky’s been fighting auto-immune disorders all of her life. Due to her condition, her hair often comes out in clumps. Becky finds creative ways to style it to hide the loss, but it’s getting harder and harder. For the last nine years she’s been receiving painful steroid injections every three weeks to try and keep her hair.

She’s had enough.

Becky decided to take control of her life by cutting off all her hair, trashing the injections and embracing who she is.

Losing your hair sucks, but embracing your struggles and coming out the other side with renewed strength and confidence is awesome. We love Becky’s perspective.
