Our team at Wigs.com was pleased to have the opportunity to meet Ann Marie Scichili. Like many women, she's been living with hair loss due to alopecia and wearing wigs for years. She shared her story with us, from the time she started losing her hair to now. She said, “Initially it was awful because I didn’t have a choice. And you can’t do anything about it.” She soon realized that in some ways, wearing wigs can be a positive thing. She explained how wigs help save her time in the morning and actually look better than her own hair ever did. “You kind of own it after a while,” she says. “It’s not the end of the world.”
Thank you, Ann Marie. We appreciate you taking the time to share your story.

September is National Alopecia Areata Awareness Month so we are featuring a guest blog post written by a woman who really understands alopecia - Jodi Pliszka, M.S., President and inventor of the No Sweat Liners by Headline It! Jodi is also an award winning author. Her autobiography Bald is Beautiful, My Journey to Becoming has been said to be “life’s instruction manual for anyone going through a challenge in their lives.” She says she is happy to share her life with Alopecia and help people expedite their challenges by learning through her experiences. The video below explores the concept of beauty and how it is affected by hair loss. Thanks Jodi for your guest blog post!
When I was 20, I was in a car accident that shocked my system, and within one month I was rendered completely hairless. I was a junior in college and wasn’t sure how to cope with my new disorder. My alopecia areata had turned into full blown Alopecia Universalis, total loss of hair over my entire body, which affected less than 200,000 people in the U.S. back in 1986. Today, the numbers of individuals with Universalis has jumped to over 40 million people. Doesn’t it make you wonder what is in the water that we are drinking to cause this?
I decided to go back to school to obtain my Master’s degree and PhD work in Psychology, to better help people with differences. Alopecia can really be taxing on a person’s psyche; the world is designed to market towards beauty, and just about every other ad you see on TV, read in a magazine, or see a billboard, has to do with mascara, hair products, or items to plump your brows. Living in a superficial world, it is difficult for many men and women to cope with Alopecia.
The only place where showing beautiful hair styles is readily accepted is on wig websites, which cater towards people with hair loss issues. These venues far surpass the old way of walking into an “old ladies wig shop” to try on outdated wig fashions and feeling like less than a woman, during this challenge. Wigs.com offers educational videos, classy photos of wig styles, colors, and a plethora of information to make any first time wig buyer feel more comfortable.
Social media has really helped bring our Alopecia community together. I host a group on Facebook called “Alopecia Universalis.” It’s a great place to gather and share photos, and tips, about living with Alopecia. We provide a loving environment that is positive and focused to encourage people of all ages, sexes, and cultures. It’s great to know that you are not alone in this world, and to see others, like yourself.
“Losing my hair helped me find who I am.” I was featured on Lifetime TV’s Health Corner, with my story on Alopecia, and was a top finalist on ABC’S American Inventor TV show, as the award winning inventor of the patented No Sweat® liners by Headline It!®. After you pick out your “new hair,” if you are looking for a little extra comfort under your wigs, hats or scarves, as I always was doing, please try our No Sweat® liners by Headline It!® - now 20% off during Alopecia Awareness Month.
