Katie – who has met several women with alopecia – also talked about how helpful a wig can be for reasons of trust.
She argued passionately: “I thought, “What else can I do?” So I thought, ‘Why don’t I just wear wigs? And just show everyone that I’m wearing wigs. ‘”
Wigs have such a stigma and I don’t know why.
Katie continued, “Wigs have such a stigma and I don’t know why.
“You can have so much fun. You can be blonde or dark … and just have fun. “
She added that “hair loss can be traumatic” for whatever reason.
