Lara Kitchen é uma modelo australiana de 20 anos que sofre alopecia desde os 14 anos, uma doença que faz os cabelos caírem. Para poder realizar seu sonho de ser modelo, ela sempre teve que usar perucas. No entanto, recém agora resolveu que era hora de se mostrar tal como é e deixar de esconder a sua doença.
Lara estava apavorada por ter que começar em uma escola nova. Ela tinha medo das opiniões dos seus novos colegas, de ser alvo de piadas ou que fizessem comentários maldosos sobre seu cabelo. “Era a menina da peruca e circulava o rumor de que eu tinha câncer. Tudo isso me causava ansiedade. Meus pais não tinham idéia do que estava acontecendo e por que eu estava perdendo o meu cabelo”, lembra ela.
A família ainda não sabe a causa da queda do cabelo de Lara. Ela visitou vários dermatologistas, mas nenhum deles foi capaz de dar uma explicação ou propor um tratamento que curasse o a doença.
O tempo passou e sua alopecia não melhorava. Foi então que ela decidiu usar perucas e sua vida mudou completamente. Mas, na atualidade Lara já não se sente insegura como na época da adolescência e resolveu usar o Instagram para mostrar sua cabeça careca. Ela publicou um vídeo acompanhado de uma mensagem incentivando as mulheres a não esconderem suas supostas imperfeições, e se sentirem orgulhosas de seus corpos e personalidade.
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
