Ms. Abby Asistio is one of the brand ambassadors for Novu Hair
Ms. Abby Asistio a song writer and singer has been suffering from alopecia areata, a type of hair loss condition that occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles resulting in partial or complete loss of hair on the scalp and the rest of the body. Alopecia areata can be hereditary; it affects both men and women at any age. She recounted that she experienced the situation when she was 4 years-old.

Baldness, which is a result of the condition, can have its emotional toll on the patient. In a society where hair is considered an essential part of self-imaging, having thick hair in men and women is considered as added plus points in one’s level of attractiveness. Shampoo commercials, for instance, always play up having long and lustrous hair as vital in defining how a beautiful woman should look like.

Abby shared her own anxieties as a woman who was going bald due to alopecia, “I learned how to cope with having alopecia though I’ve been wearing wigs and hats.
Because of her situation , She became a spokesperson for people who have alopecia. She prefers to be called ” Alopecia Warrior“.
I remember that i have a classmate with similar situation during my elementary days, but my classmate situation is much better. When i last saw her in college several years after, Her hair grew thick and it was due to hair treatment . That was my first time to encounter the medical term Alopecia.
