Alopecia Areata does not cause permanent hair loss. The hair follicles are not destroyed, and hair does have the possibility to re-grow. Usually, in Patchy Alopecia Areata, hair will regrow over a period of months or years, but regrowth cannot be guaranteed. Many people with Alopecia Areata do experience full regrowth.

I’m sad that I can’t read my journals from that time, but I made up for it with my novel, Single Bald Female. I listed myself on my dating profile as a ‘single, bald (possibly infertile) female’ Single Bald Female was published in April 2022, and seeing it in the window of Waterstones was one of the proudest moments of my life.
