What is “Head-On?”


Head-On, Stories of Alopecia is a collection of personal narratives that follow the courageous journeys of over 75 writers as they find their way after being diagnosed with alopecia areata, a hair loss condition that affects over 146 million men, women and children throughout the world.

What begins as just a small bald spot eventually leads to a diagnosis of a confusing and relatively unknown autoimmune disease. They soon learn there are no reliable cures and that alopecia could possibly last a lifetime. Their discovery of acceptance, adaptability and finally celebration are intertwined in these thought-provoking inspiring stories and captivating photos.

As they unearth their new identities and reclaim their lives, there is no doubt you will begin to recognize your own distinct ability to tackle any challenge, Head-On.
