Becky Harris was diagnosed with alopecia areata, an autoimmune skin health condition, when she was 17 years old. And it was at this young age that she started shedding her hair.
Becky initially noticed the seriousness of the condition when a chunk of her hair showed up in her then-boyfriend’s hands. And for any girl going through high school, they understand that spotting security in yourself is hard enough, don’t bother wrestling an autoimmune health condition on top of that.
Therefore, Becky undertook what the majority of women would: She began exploring with hairdos that would most likely cover up the spots where she was losing hair. And she began having cortisone shots in order to make an effort to minimize the extent of her hair loss.
After nine years of steroid shots, Becky made a decision to have control of her hair condition and shave her head.
It was undoubtedly an emotional experience.
Fortunately, Becky got a dope hairstylist (her boyfriend) who made certain she had an awesome fresh cut. Later on, she was feeling anxious, but empowered at the same time.
In the end, it was a significant realization that femininity as well as beauty in no way rely on a head of hair.
