Natural Hair Style Wig Options For Men/Women of Color Experiencing Hair Loss



I'm Dianne Austin and in 2015, I lost all of my hair due to chemotherapy.  I'm very interested in learning more about the experiences of men and women of color who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy or for other reasons. If you have lost your hair through medical reasons or through hair styling choices - or just lost your hair over time, I value your opinion.  The data will be used to help provide services for those looking for wig options due to hair loss.
 
Thank you for helping me to gather data by taking this important hair loss survey. To learn more about me, check out my YouTube channel: A Naturalista's Hair Loss Journey.
