In anticipation of the 9th Annual Locks of Love Summer Camp, here’s to the FIRST camp group from 2009! Thanks for helping us start this annual, fun-filled, make new friends weekend!
We are excited to let you know that artist, Ellen Surrey  promoted “Locks of Love” on The Big Hundred campaign March 28th.  The Big Hundred is a grassroots, social media campaign to promote doing good in the world.  Locks of Love is proud to be featured as their “positive act” for day 67!
I just received my hairpiece in February. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata at about the age of 14. My family and I didn’t know what to do. We went to doctor after doctor after doctor, and that’s when I was told to go see a Children’s Mercy dermatologist.
I just received my second “Locks of Love” hairpiece in December and I cannot be more thankful. I have struggled with Alopecia since I was a little girl and was bullied in elementary school.
Alopecia is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the hair follicles of the scalp and body causing hair loss. Scientists have found that there are seven types of alopecia but the most common types are alopecia areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis.
