"I am not my hair, I am not this skin, I am not your expectations, I am the soul that lives within." India Arie

From the time we are young, girls are pressured into a set belief of beauty standards. Hair is certainly high on the list and is often labeled as our "crown and glory." Where does this notion fit for females with alopecia (the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows)?

 

I Am More Than My Hair, is a documentary film and photography book that includes stories of women who have experienced hair loss due to a health-related condition and their journey of self-empowerment to see beauty beyond the media’s standards.

 

A bald woman is usually perceived as a cancer diagnosis, given that the media depicts female baldness as relative to this deadly illness. Although it can be related to cancer, it is not always the case. Most are unaware of alopecia and the many reasons why a woman may experience hair loss. I Am More Than My Hair is an educational documentary focused on bringing awareness to alopecia and dispelling the myth of what beauty is "supposed" to look like.

Support Alyscia's first documentary film I Am More Than My Hair. Your donation can support three causes:

1. Exhibition and screening presentations
2. Accessibility - making it accessible for people with visual and hearing disabilities. Alyscia has made it mandatory that the venues requesting her art for exhibition, include accessibility as a part of the program.

3. Film distribution
