I Shaved My Head To Take Control of My Hair Loss - An Interview With Chloe Bean

I Shaved My Head To Take Control of My Hair Loss - An Interview With Chloe Bean

Did you know that over 50% of women experience notable hair loss in their lifetime?

Hair loss is such a common occurrence in women, though talking about it is still considered taboo. 

Chloe Bean, Arizona State University student and bald badass, is breaking down the stigma one Instagram and Tik Tok post at a time!

We were lucky enough to interview her for Hair Loss Awareness month and get a closer look into her life with alopecia.

Interview conducted via email August 12, 2021.

When did you first realize your hair was falling out?

“I was 8 years old when I first realized my hair was falling out.

I remember that I was in Elementary school and one morning while my mom was doing my hair, she noticed a bald spot on the back of my head. That’s when I started to notice a bunch of hair on my pillowcases every morning.

My parents initially thought that I was pulling out my hair, but over time more bald spots appeared and that’s when they realized there was a bigger situation at hand”

 

What was your initial reaction to your hair loss?

“I have been bald three times in my life now and I don’t really remember my initial reaction the first time I went bald since I was so young, but what I do remember is feeling like I didn’t belong when I was around people in public or around my friends since I wasn't like the other girls who had such long, beautiful hair.

Instead, I always had to wear hats out in public to try and hide the bald spots that were scattered throughout my hair”

 

How did you get diagnosed with Alopecia Areata?

“It took a few months of going to multiple doctors and dermatologists until finally a dermatologist at Mid Michigan Health Center diagnosed me with Alopecia Areata.

Little did I know the huge impact that would have on my life.

I feel that Alopecia wasn't as well known back then compared to today which is why it was more difficult for my peers to understand what was going on with me then compared to today's society, more and more people are starting to come out and say they have Alopecia or other autoimmune diseases which is absolutely amazing”

 

When did you decided to post about your hair loss and what gave you the courage?

“November 13th of 2016 was the very first time I gained enough courage to post a bald picture of myself on instagram.

After years of hiding it and having it control me I decided to take control of it.

alopecia areata - women with hair loss - high quality wigs for women with thinning hair - why is my hair falling out - human hair wigs - best wigs for hair loss - best wig brands - realistic human hair wigs - natural looking wigs

There were many factors that encouraged me which include my family, especially my parents, but I would have to say someone who stood by my side and always had my back was my therapist.

I started seeing a therapist back in high school when I was losing my hair. After many sessions and countless tears, she helped me realize that instead of looking into a mirror everyday and not liking the image that reflected in it, that it would make me much happier to take control of my autoimmune disease by shaving what was left of my hair off. She was absolutely right. Rather than seeing bald spots grow bigger and bigger everyday around my head or seeing clumps of hair on my pillows, I felt powerful for once.

It felt like a weight lifted off of my shoulders after going completely bald. It was my new identity.”

 

What was the feedback like when you finally posted about your hair loss?

The feedback was absolutely powerful. I had people who I hadn’t reached out to in years commenting on my picture and my DMs were flooded with such positive messages.

Growing up people always knew I had Alopecia because they could see the bald spots around my head, but being able to take charge of something you have no control over and the courage to embrace it... is what makes you powerful!!”

 

When did your social media account starts to gain attention and how did it make you feel?

“My social media accounts started to gain attention because of my Alopecia and so to speak “coming out” with it.

Back in high school I would always post bald pictures of myself and I even made an Instagram account solely for the purpose of my journey with Alopecia, but I started to gain a lot of attention once a few of my Tik Tok videos went viral pertaining to Alopecia. Once that happened,

I realized something in my life that makes me truly happy is letting other people know that they aren't alone. It gives me a purpose!

Growing up I really didn't have a good support system or people who could understand me on a deeper level. I believe if someone is going through something, finding a support system is crucial. Knowing there are other people going through the same thing you’re going through and who can relate helps tremendously”

 

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My biggest inspirations are both of my parents. They are what hard work and determination is. No matter what anyone in our family is going through they are my rocks, my support system and always have my back!

 

What was your experience like with medical treatments for your hair loss?

The fact that there isn’t a cure for Alopecia is very unfortunate, so my experience with medical treatment hasn’t been that great. I did start doing sessions of steroid shots back in high school that would get injected in my head, but that required countless sessions and once I stopped receiving the shots, my hair would just fall out again so it was like a never ending cycle.

alopecia areata - women with hair loss - high quality wigs for women with thinning hair - why is my hair falling out - human hair wigs - best wigs for hair loss - best wig brands - realistic human hair wigs - natural looking wigs

I decided to quit receiving treatment this year actually and just embrace my baldness rather than try and fight for my body to produce hair when it isn’t meant to be.

 

What was the first wig you ever got and what was the experience like wearing it for the first time?

The first wig I ever received was from a nonprofit organization called Wigs4Kids. Maggie Varney the CEO made the experience out of this world!

During my appointment she showed me a variety of different wig caps and how they feel on your head to make me feel comfortable. I was also able to pick out the hair color on my wig.

The first time wearing it was so surreal because I knew that I had a wig on so it made me very self conscious about going out in public. I felt like I got really in my head and assumed that everyone would know I was wearing a wig because I knew that I was wearing one. I would constantly wear a hat over my wig to make me feel more comfortable, but over time it got easier and I accepted the fact I had a wig on my head.

 

What is your favorite wig color?

“My favorite wig color is a dark brown/auburn with ombre. I feel it makes me look natural and compliments my skin tone well”

 

Your cousins shaved their hair to make a wig for you and the video of it went viral! What was that journey like?

Family means everything to me. My cousins saw how difficult it was for me growing up at times not having hair, so when I recently went bald again my cousins decided to grow their hair out for me to make a wig from family hair.

Two years later, their hair was finally long enough to be able to donate it towards making a wig. At first my cousin, Grant, joked about it and would send me pictures of how long his hair was getting, but then it became a reality and he told me how he was now growing out his hair to make a wig for me.

Throughout the duration of him growing out his hair, he would update me over text or face time, explaining how he bought supplements to help make his hair grow faster. I am so blessed to have a family like mine!”

 

Female hair loss for Chloe has been a life long challenge.

Refusing to let her hair take control of her life and gaining the courage to shave her head, has been a life changing experience.

As the advice Chloe wish she had at the beginning of her hair loss journey states,

“It is such a beautiful process. Never fight for something that just isn't meant to be. I’m bald and have a story to tell.”

Many thanks to Andrew Butcher for sharing this recommendation here, I got to recoup my stolen 1.2 ETH just now from a con artist who ripped me off via trust wallet. swiftrecovery2@mail.com is the legitimate funds (crypto and other digital assets) recovery agent.

When one Loses money to crypto and digital assets theft it  can be  so so devastating so the need to get a legitimate fund recovery team arises. Few weeks back I fell for an ad on crypto investment which I invested blindly due to the return on investment. After a few days of investing I tried to check through how my investment has grown and to my surprise the account that was created for me got deleted. That was how I lost my life savings of about $250.000. and I tried reaching the support team all to no avail.

He is the real  deal!

One of the primary reasons I detest the internet is because of online scammers. My mom fell victim to a fraud where the con artist obtained access to some of her personal information by hacking into all of her details. In order to help us recover control of her accounts and digital assets, we had to engage Redeemed Hacker Pro’s private investigators Support. Fortunately for us, this hacking agency (email: redeemed.h.p@consultant.com; website: redeemedhackerpro.wixsite.com/redeem-hacker-pro) helped us retrieve everything we had lost.

I really appreciate the support I got from; hackrecovery {A-T} yandex D\O\T ru , when I was trying to recover my lost funds. I had probably sent eth to a wrong address, I was trying to send it to yellow peacock eth network they auto generate address but the amount didn’t arrive.

Hi, about a week ago my ETH was transferred to a wallet address I do not recognize. I never did this nor do I approve the transaction. I feel like I have been hacked/phished. I was able to trace this address and recover my coins when I contacted support on, hackrecovery [AT] yandex [D-O-T] ru. I really appreciate their level of professionalism and explanation dealing with this issue.

I thought I had lost my savings for 10 years after being convinced to invest in crypto currency and it turned out to be a scheme, that was my life savings and you know how heartbreaking it can be. I had searched the web tirelessly, spoken to a few professionals and they all said my savings were gone… I stumbled on a post totally unrelated to recovering my funds, I think this was about catching a cheating partner, I reached out to the infiltrator and I must tell you this has been the best decision I have taken in a very long while. Backendrecover helped trail my coins, retrieve and refund them, it seemed so unbelievable but I am definitely not investing in crypto currencies anymore or at least until I do thorough background checks… If you sense you have been ripped off, I suggest you act promptly, you can reach them through mail at: Backend recover at reSCue team d-o-t co/m. You will be glad.

I invested in crypto through this website JuBoCoin, which the crypto broker gave me, it was a smooth and jolly good ride. I kept investing because I could see the numbers on my profits from my investment kept skyrocketing and I was extremely filled with joy not till recently. I noticed I had invested quite a fortune in this crypto program and it has affected my business. I needed to boost my business back, I own a grocery and thrift item shop in Paris. I tried to request a withdrawal through this website via its customer support. That’s when I started panicking and suspecting this was a fraud. My fear was confirmed when I hired the SWIFT RECOVERY TEAM OF HACKERS just for them to confirm my worst fear, that the crypto investment website was a fraudulent one. Luck shone on me when they told me they would be able to trace and recover all that I had invested from that website. They did outright with my task, they gave me the best recovery service for a fee to none. It was really nice. I was able to reach the SWIFT RECOVERY TEAM through a Russian friend here in Paris by name Katerina Petrov. If in need of a hacking team for a similar purpose, i will recommend swiftrecovery2@mail.com

Oh! i can tell you for sure that Losing One’s crypto currency to fake exchange or trading platform is such a devastating and frustrating experience. My sister  who lives in Turkey fell victim of the Investment scam, lost all her funds amounting to $250,000 to the fraudsters, but weeks later, called me to tell me she got 90% of her funds back with the help of a recovery tech guy, who she read about online as one of the best experts of bitcoin recovery. I requested the contact of this genius so as to tell other victims about him and they could get their funds back too. here is how you can contact he and his team through mail; Hacking professional3  AT g/mail Dot Com. i bet you wont regret you did.

After worthless attempts to recover my stolen Bitcoin on the 16th day of February,2024. I turned to the vast expanse of the internet for answers. Hours of late-night scrolling and search led me to stumble across a shining beacon of hope – SWIFT RECOVERY TEAM. Their name alone intrigued me. I mean, who wouldn’t want a cyber wizard by their side in a time of digital crisis?

These Fraudsters prey on the fact that most new investors are not aware of the pros and cons of how the investment world functions. Most new investors are always looking out for quick return on investment and these makes them fall prey to these bogus brokers lurking about the web. After promising high return on investment you will find out that withdrawal will never happen, rather several excuses and fees will be charges and even after paying all will be in vain, this was what happened to me when I started the crypto currency Investment journey,  and i will not want someone else to experience same. that’s why I’ll forever be grateful to a friend of mine who introduced me to one amazing Hacker dude, i will also like to appreciate the effort of the agency who helped me recover all my crypto funds from the bogus company. Anyone who has been in this same situation should reach the agency on their support email: Backend RECOVER at rescue TeAm Dot c-o-m

I performed a lot of research on cryptocurrency recovery after I lost $97,000 worth of Bitcoin to scammers, and one of the numerous contacts I made proved to be the perfect fit for the position. I was obviously wrong at the time because I never would have believed that the lost Bitcoin could ever be found again. He promised to recover all of the lost Bitcoin within 24 to 72 hours after getting in touch with (recoveryexpert at rescueteam dot com) and sending over all the transaction data with the fraudster. He followed through on this promise, successfully recovering $92,000 out of $97k. That, in my opinion, was a noteworthy triumph that was well worth the effort and money.
