The reason BHBD exists today - Alopecia Areata.
You should be safe in knowing that we understand you and what you are going through. Louise Sköld, who founded BHBD, has Alopecia Areata herself and was looking for her dream wig but didn't feel like she found it anywhere. That's why she created her own wig. Today these are sold as wigs on our webshop and at carefully selected hairdressers.
So, what exactly does Alopecia mean?
Alopecia means that you have an autoimmune disease which in turn results in the body forming antibodies against one of the parts of the hair follicles. It creates an allergy-like reaction against itself, resulting in losing one's hair in one way or another.
What are the different types of Alopecia?
Alopecia Areata - you lose hair in patches
Alopecia Totalis - you lose all the hair on your head
Alopecia Universalis - you lose all hair. Even body hair disappears
Who suffers from Alopecia?
Alopecia can affect anyone, anywhere, but it is most often seen in women. About 60% of them develop Alopecia before the age of 30. As it looks today, younger and younger women are affected by this disease.
