Hair Loss Support Groups & Organizations

Experiencing hair loss can be traumatic and bring down your self-esteem. You’re not alone in this experience! There are various hair loss support groups and organizations that can help you find community, helpful resources, and more!

National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF)

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune condition in which the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles, leading to hair loss all over the scalp and other parts of the body. The National Alopecia Areata Foundation, or NAAF, is a non-profit organization that provides the most up-to-date information about alopecia areata. You’ll find support groups for adults and children, upcoming conferences, free webinars, and the ability to search for dermatologists specializing in hair loss.

American Academy of Dermatology

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) is a resource center with detailed information about various types of alopecia, including causes of hair loss, self-care tips, and cosmetic treatment options. The AAD is committed to advancing the diagnosing and improving medical, surgical, and cosmetic treatment of the skin, hair, and nails.
