Lara Kitchen es una hermosa modelo australiana de 20 años, quien a la edad de 14 años perdió todo su cabello, a causa de una enfermedad llamada alopecia.
El padecimiento de esta chica inició cuando recién comenzaba un nuevo instituto. Su cabello comenzó a caerse y ella se aterraba al pensar que todos se burlarían de ella.
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
“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 por qué perdía mi pelo”, dice Lara. Aunque sus padres la llevaron a decenas de médicos y dermatólogos, el progreso de este padecimiento no se pudo evitar y Lara perdió todo su cabello.
Esta chica pasó días terribles por no tener cabello, hasta que un buen día descubrió las pelucas de cabello natural y fue el mejor descubrimiento de su vida: “¡Tenía pelo y podía hacerme una coleta muy larga! Mi melena parecía real y yo estaba feliz”, explica.
Desde entonces esta chica pudo retomar el sueño que siempre tuvo, el cual era ser modelo, sueño que con mucho éxito alcanzó y no el tener pelo no fue un impedimento.
Esta hermosa chica de actitud positiva, decidió mostrar en las redes sociales su realidad , sorprendiendo a todos y sin miedo a ser criticada. Ahora se siente muy segura de sí misma y eso busca transmitir con su mensaje: “Soy valiente y fuerte y sí, el cabello es muy importante físicamente pero mis amigos y mi familia me quieren por como soy y no me tengo por qué avergonzar de ello”.
A small part of my interview live this morning with channel 7s the morning show, this to me was almost as scary as posting the video about having alopecia. My main aim is to help people realize that they are not alone if suffering from alopecia and also for people to know it's okay to be you no matter what your imperfections are and to embrace them! Excuse my nervous talking, I was so beyond nervous haha! None of this would have ever been possible with Francesca who has been making my wigs for so many years now and helped me to be brave enough to do this! #alopecia#selflove#alopeciaawareness#themorningshow @freedomcouture
