"I've been pulling my hair and now I see a hole in them, how can I cover it?"

"How do I make-up my eyes if I don't have my eyelashes anymore?"

"How do I cover alopecia?"

"They told me I could buy a wig, but I don't feel comfortable in wearing one. What can I do?"

"I've been thinking of shaving my head a lot, but I can't find the courage..."

Answering those (and many other) questions is the reason why I decided to create

#TheBoldGirls consultation program

the first customized guide cutting through the problem of missing hair

Your mind raises many questions when something like TRICHOTILLOMANIA, ALOPECIA and CHEMO take away your hair.
And answers seem nowhere to be found.

When I was a teenager, I tried looking on the internet for possible tips on how to survive this period with dignity – at that time I didn’t know it would be a permanent effect – and I could only find forums where people having the same problem poured their hearts out in order to find some comfort.

Today, other options that you find online are step-by-step guides describing all the tools I have been using myself.

There are a few sites where videos are shown and you can read of these instructions freely, as a lot of women have been looking for a way to restore their look, especially when going through a hair loss due to certain illnesses like cancer.

 

But…there is a problem!! I still haven’t found a single website where these treatments empower you with

  • look that you want and accept independently from your sickness;
  • a look that’s yours and feels like it suits you;
  • a look that comes from your decision as a person that has been faced with a problem and she has taken this problem as an opportunity to build something better for herself

while taking it upon themselves to be a personal guide that you can see, talk to and place your trust with.

And if you take a second to think about it, whenever there’s a patch over a pair of jeans, that will be the first thing you notice while with a new style people will just tell you how good you look today!

These available methods are in fact applied as a temporary solution and therefore often exchanged for tips with little value.

And yet when my hair was gone, I had lost my identity, which I hold in great value.

Lost all at once. And that’s exactly what I needed to find: I needed to look at myself in the mirror finding a person I would recognize, not a made-up masque that was hiding herself behind cute colors.

My realization about the use of colors, shapes and volume during years of experimenting made me a new person, someone I could rely on and whose look was awesome, no matter the reason I was wearing it!

At that time, there was no one that would tell me what to do to repair the damage, to hide what I was ashamed of having so much in display: that face that wasn’t me, that head that was sick and ugly, that image that strangers, acquaintances, friends and family now saw as “sick”.

I understood that something was wrong when the expression over my parents face changed in shock.

Since then, I could only hear my reflection in the mirror screaming that I was an ugly monster.

My sister was the first one to try and help me, she gave me an eyebrows pencil telling me to draw my eyebrows; she also gave me a black pencil to mark my eyes where the lashes were lacking.

The eyebrows pencil was way darker for me and the black pencil would always melt down and make me look an emo, but hey I was still happy of the result. Now I laugh at that way of patching myself up! I was very young, but that solution helped me a bit anyway.

During the following years I often abused of make-up resulting “too much” or even vulgar, I was hungry to hide my flaws as much as I could, but I didn’t have anyone suggesting me to do otherwise.

What was more important, according to those who cared about me, was for me to resolve the issue with myself from the inside and all things related to my actual image situation, were considered not relevant.

Fortunately, a solution was there to be found.

I remember the day I proudly showed my bald head to the world, 9 years had passed from the beginning of my illness, my teenage years were lost forever to that monster inside me that had left permanent scars both inside and outside my body.

Well. The day my shiny head felt the sun again, I couldn’t feel more beautiful or happy about how I looked.

I felt empowered and invincible like Wonder Woman.

Even today, when people ask me to show them my bald head (yes this happens a lot) I get a strange feeling inside my stomach, as if shame had left a scar that hurts a little every time this happens, like a small reminder that is there.

When I show it though, I am still proud of myself, for it took me very long to get there.

I could seriously write for hours about the things that happened to me as a bald girl, the emotions I felt in different occasions and the experiences I turned down because I didn’t have the courage to show myself for who I was, but this page is not the right page to talk about it.

This page I am writing because I have decided to:

  • Collect all the experiences I did or I was forced to live and put them at good use
  • Squeeze my knowledge after numerous years of different kinds of therapy – that mostly did not save me, but in the long run made me see another point of view and change my life for the best
  • Help you choose the enlightening moments over the low ones
  • Settle for the right tools instead of spending money on useless paper band-aids
  • And create an explosive package to help other women like me to make a statement out of their new look, from being just bald to be bold!
