Up until a few months ago, I had a full head of hair. That was, until alopecia aerota came calling. Now, my scalp has the appearance of a cancer patient that is a couple of months into chemotherapy.
I’m being treated for the alopecia - hydrocortisone shots in the scalp, hydrocortisone gels, and in the near future, possibly oral steroids. Some hair is growing back, but there’s still a bit of shedding.
My hair is fairly patchy, but I don’t look that repulsive yet. If seen from the front, I still look somewhat normal. If an alopecia patch forms towards the front of my head, though, it’s all over - I’ll either have to shave it all off, or somehow cover it. If shave my head, it makes checking for areas of regrowth difficult. Thus, I’ve got to find a way to somehow cover my hair, yet still be presentable – my job involves a lot of public contact and speaking.
Do any of you have any ideas how to cover my hair, but still look presentable in a government office?
