Resources for Hair Loss Research

Childrens Alopecia Project — To help any child in need who is living with hair loss due to all forms of Alopecia.

AAD Kids’ Connection — a special section of the AAD Web site that provides kids with information about dermatologists and various skin diseases and disorders. It also includes information on a special camp for kids with diseases like alopecia areata.

Alopecia Areata Coloring Book — a really great coloring book for kids with alopecia areata and their friends.

2bMe — an information-packed Web site that covers all the stuff teens with cancer wonder about — from skin and hair to fitness and friends. There are interactive style finders, fashion slide shows, and how-to demos. This site is the online component of Look Good…Feel Better for Teens, a public service program created by the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association (CTFA) in partnership with the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the National Cosmetology Association (NCA).

Locks of Love — Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure.
