What Exactly Is Alopecia?

Alopecia is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles. These hair follicles are actually the vital, starting point for hair growth.

Alopecia is extremely common among people younger than 20 years old. Both women and men are affected equally.

When someone is affected by alopecia, their hair begins to fall out in clumps. Thus, resulting in the head having spots of baldness. In some rare cases, the alopecia will affect the entire scalp and the body's hairs, as well. Although, most cases are only slightly affected and lose 'patches' of hair, resulting in hair thinning.

Doctors say that 10% of those affected with alopecia, may never regrow their hair again.

Kylie Bamberger's Journey From Struggle To Gorgeous Bride-To-Be

Kylie's journey began in when she was 15 years old. She was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis, which is a rare condition that causes the complete loss of all hair, including the scalp and the entire body. So when she was growing up, she started wearing wigs. When she was wearing the wig, she never took it off as she did not want to create uncomfortable situations, especially when it came to her dating life, back in the day. Kylie says that loving yourself comes first and loving someone else, comes second.

Throughout her young adulthood, she has grown so much confidence, that she has not worn her wig in the last 5 years. She wants everyone to know that their beauty comes from within and to accept all that you are!

How She Battled And Absolutely Owned Her Wedding Prep

Before the wedding day, the 27-year-old decided that she would not wear a wig on the big day. She told Inside Edition that: 'There was no way I was going to wear a wig at my wedding.' Instead, she wore a beautiful headband that went perfectly with her 2-piece wedding dress.

The Wedding Day!

The Big Day happened this past October of 2016. Kylie looked so beautiful on her wedding day. Her wedding day attire was gorgeous and Kylie looks adorably happy with her husband.

This Woman Is An Inspiration

Kylie says in her YouTube video, that she 'Does NOT suffer from alopecia.' She goes on to say that the media portrays Alopecia in a negative light and how the media isn't being beneficial in its power. Sympathizing the loss of hair is only making the importance of having hair, that much greater. We should be celebrating positivity, how beautiful people are in the inside, and change the conversation to how wonderful it is to have a diversity of people that live in our society. She's accepted and loves the way she looks!

This model and motivation speaker has inspired many women on social media. She even took part in the #WhatIModel movement that was used in a social media campaign by both 'Health' and 'Sports Illustrated.' This campaign's purpose was to show that there is a celebration of body positivity and diversity. Her Instagram video was actually the most popular, with now over 84K views. Kylie says in the video that when she lost her hair, 'She was so focused on what she had lost, that she hadn't necessarily realized what she had gained. She gained the ability to finally love herself.' What a beautiful message by an inspirational woman.

Her message to those who are affected by alopecia is to 'Make yourself a new, better YOU!'
