Alopecia Awareness is a great site for support with Alopecia and hair loss.

The site is supported by Michelle Chapman (sufferer of Alopecia related hair loss since the age of 5) a close friend of Gail Porter and Michelle is well known for appearing on TV, in magazines and on Radio, although Michelle is a celebrity in her own right. Michelle aims is to help people suffering from hairloss and Michelle now works as a wig specialist for a wig manufacturing company providing wigs for the NHS.

Victoria and Amy from the Hair Replacement team at Additional Lengths have had the great pleasure of meeting Michelle and has spent a few days in training with her with the aim of providing a professional caring service for NHS patients. Michelle shows outstanding enthusiasm and dedication to the caring services she provides.

"I have lived with alopecia since the age of 15. At 32, i discovered a replacement system to help sufferers like myself regain confidence, the only disadvantage to it was I had to travel to London every 6 weeks, but after 5 years, through a trip to the swimming baths , I passed Hair Replacement Specialists within Additional Lengths, who deal in Hair Replacement. On my first consultation with Vicky, she suprised me with alternitives which has turned out to be even better for me. My own hair is improving on every visit, which is amazing to see. It was the best trip to the baths ever, which has now left me with the hair I only dreamt of."
