En Instagram todos mostramos nuestra mejor cara, lo más divertido de nuestra vida y esa misma imagen es recreada por todos nuestros amigos y seguidores. La protagonista de esta historia es Lara Kitchen, una modelo que decidió que era hora de mostrar a sus seguidores su realidad, más allá de sus fotos en Instagram.
Lara tiene 20 años y es australiana. A los 14 años perdió su pelo, y para intentar llevar una vida normal y cumplir su sueño, decidió usar pelucas de pelo natural.
Cuando estaba en medio de su adolescencia su pelo empezó a caer y ella no entendía que sucedía. Después de visitar muchos dermatólogos finalmente supo qué era lo que sucedía con su cabello.
Lara sufría de Lara Kitchen, una enfermedad que causa la caída parcial o total del cabello y que en general afecta a los hombres pero que también puede causar pérdida de pelo en las mujeres.
“Era la chica de la peluca y se había lanzado el rumor que tenía cáncer y todas estas palabras me provocaban ansiedad. Mis padres no tenían ni idea de lo que ocurría y porqué perdía mi pelo”, dijo Lara.
Third times a charm with my new with and without wig digitals. After having nasty comments left on this last night and deleting it due to being upset about it, after talking to people I've today realized that the nasty comments have only given me drive to prove to those people and anyone else that doubts me that there is no way in hell negative comments will stop me from achieving anything I put my mind too. I'm helping a beyond amazing amount of people with alopecia and I won't stop at anything to help be a voice for these amazing people and spread awareness of alopecia! #model#alopecia#alopeciaawareness
Después de intentar muchos tratamientos, todos fallidos, Lara decidió que la mejor opción era usar una peluca. Para esto se contactó con Francesca de Mori, especialista en la materia y que ha acompañado a Lara en este difícil proceso.
Doing this is was the scariest thing I have ever done in my entire life and something I don't speak about to anyone! So a little story to get this all started When I was 14 I started to loose my hair in clumps and as you can imagine being a 14 year old girl starting high school with new people, you want to make a good impression but for me I became and felt like I was the girl that "wore a wig" or as nasty rumors went around such as "I had cancer" and these words were spread not just through my own school but through other school and already suffering anxiety made things very tough. My parents had no Idea what was going on, why was I loosing my hair? We saw doctor after doctor and some said stress and then one of perths top dermatologists told us alopecia, I remember sitting there and just crying in the doctors office and taking my wig off as he looked at my head and began to tell me and my mum that the follicle off the hair was still there but the chances of it growing back were slim but determined to get my hair back we started treatments (which were not cheap, and involved very strong steroids going onto my head) eventually after trying and trying I gave up and had to accept that nothing was working so for the mean time stick to wigs And I can tell you now wigs 6-7 years ago were not what they are today! And one day a gorgeous soul who I will forever be great full too for this told me about franchesca this young lady that was making wigs/ weaves. So my mum and i went and visited franchesca and my god my life changed instantly, Franchesca made long human hair wigs, which was so exciting for me, I could straighten my hair!! I could have a long pony tail! My "hair" looked more real. And from then on kept hush about my hair. Over the past years me and franchesca have spoken about doing something like this video and a few months ago, I agreed! Because I have nothing to be ashamed off in my words "I'm bold (literally) and strong" and yes hair is a major physical aspect to my appearance but my friends and family love me for me, my personality the person and was raised to be, I shouldn't have anything to feel ashamed off! *continue reading in the comments section
