Just thought I'd say a few words about being totally without and hair anywhere.

I'm a 64 year old bloke.  Very fit and healthy, not overweight,  long-term happily married, and very very content.

I've had AE (on my head) once or twice over the years, but last year (2015), it ALL fell out everywhere.  Every single hair. Every one. Gone.  Not one hair anywhere at all.

I've noticed over the past few months, that my skin has gone quite soft and smooth.  The hair follicles have disappeared entirely and I have lovely smooth skin all over my body.

To be absolutely honest, I would be distraught if any hair grew back!
I love it like this.  I'm in and out of the shower in minutes, I've saved a fortune on shampoo, and I think I'm actually cleaner and healthier without being hairy.  Yes, it's gets a bit chilly on the head in the winter, but a warm hat works wonders.

Please, don't think I'm being awkward or strange about this, but being completely hairless is good .......... believe me. Smile

Best wishes to all,
Mick.

PS:
I don't need to shave either.
I always hated shaving, so that's another good thing! Smile

Carrying on with my observations .......................
I'm finding that my eyes have a problem.

Not having eyelashes, things get in my eyes easily. Dust etc, and they get dry and sore too.
Eye drops help, but if there's a single disadvantage of being totally hairless, it's the eyelashes that I miss.

The rest of being hairless, is still brilliant. 

Best wishes to all,
Mick.
