Alopecia UK is a small charity working to improve the lives of those affected by alopecia. The charity has aims around Support, Awareness and Research.

After being diagnosed with alopecia areata (patches of hair loss) I've decided to shave my head, to make this experience more enjoyable i want to raise money for Alopecia UK, and show support for all those who are suffering with this condition like me.

This condition affects 15% of the worlds population, and when experiencing hair fall it can very upsetting, even more so for those who have alopecia totalis (effects whole head) and universalis (affects whole body). Although there is treatment to help hair regrown, there is no cure for this condition as it is an autoimmune disease (own body attack itself). Although hair loss may happen again and again, we can support those during there battle with hair loss.
