Bald women struggle to be covered

bald woman[Sarah Carroll] was diagnosed with alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease in which the affected hair follicles are mistakenly attacked by the person’s own immune system, causing hair growth to stop. The disease, which affects 1 in 60 Americans, is expressed differently in each person; some lose all their hair, others lose only small patches.Haven’t read the whole article, but I think it’s the usual legal fight where the insurance companies are trying to pass off the disease as cosmetic so they don’t have to pay out. Bastards. But I can see the reasoning. If you’re not having to pay for expensive shampoos, conditioners, and haircuts, then you can buy your own damn wig. Wonder how much wigs cost anyway? Link
