Quick little story. ..

I was at the movies yesterday watching Hercules and I walked out of the theater to go to the consession stand to get some popcorn. This little boy about 13 years old walks out at the same time with his father. The little boy obviously had Alopecia. I'm standing behind them in line and I lean over and tell him I lost my hair too. Him and his father looked at me like I was crazy. I tell them but I got it back. The father says well u must have had a HT. I'm like oh no something much better. So I get to talking to them about SMP and i could see the excitement in the little boys eyes. It made me feel like I had given him a gift. I had given him hope! So his father tells me that he'll be booking a consultation asap. If HIS helped me then why not spread the word and help others.

I wonder if the treatment approach is different with children?

Good man. I've been close to doing the same but didn't want to risk it. I've told a couple of friends about it as their partners are thinning.

Outside of my immediate family I have only told two people that I had SMP.  The main reason is that I do not want to then continually run into that person and have them scan my scalp, to try and tell the SMP from the real hair. However, my small son is currently taking swim lessons and one of the boys in his class has alopecia universalis which was brought on by treatment for an immune disorder (and is likely permanent).  After sitting beside him and his parents for several sessions I got to know this pleasant child and his positive and upbeat parents and finally mentioned HIS to them.  About a week later, they came back to me and explained that they had researched the HIS website and mentioned that none of the doctors who had seen their son had commented on SMP.  They then began to tear up and broke down, explaining all the teasing their son had taken since the immune disorder began.  I explained to them the pros and cons of SMP and told them that it had worked well for myself and many other hundreds of people on the forum.  They told me that they were planning to make their initial consult in Sept in Los Angeles and how much hope it had given to their son.  I can tell you I felt alot better that evening when I went home from the swim lesson and I suspect they did as well.

Went from Norwood 4.5 to a realistic Norwood 1 - Pretty happy with my results!

BTW, if anyone sees this who suffers from alopecia, there are several products available to help those afflicted get their eyebrows back as well. From simple eye pencils to lower end costume fakes to high end real hair patches, you can also get a respectful and realistic eyebrow treatment.  That combined with SMP can really make the condition of alopecia universalis much less noticeable.  With SMP and realistic eyebrows, the person is much more like a professional swimmer or diver who optionally chooses to shave his lower body hair.

Great stories, lads. Fantastic effort in bringing SMP to their attention.

I am an alopecia sufferer who has lost all hair including eyebrows etc and the only sticking point for me that is preventing me from booking with HIS tomorrow is the issue of eyebrows.

I am at a crossroads between whether 'hair' and no eyebrows would ask more questions than no hair whatsoever and would hugely welcome the feedback from as many people who have had the same dilemma as me at some stage.
