Hayden Montross has used her battle with alopecia to become a social media star. She tells The Doctors that a little kid she did not feel too affected by the hair loss condition, but when she was in middle school, her hair began to really fall out.
"It got a little hard for me because I was the only bald girl at my school," she says looking back, explaining she was often stared at by other people. She says she used humor to cope and told bald jokes as way to diffuse the situation.
Now, she has taken her story (and her bald jokes!) to the social media app TikTok, and she's racking up millions of views. "I just hope that the people watching these videos are learning that it is okay to be different... I think that being different is better because you stand out and you should just really embrace yourself for who you are and love yourself no matter what," she shares.
The Doctors are happy Hayden is bringing awareness to alopecia, which affects up to 7 million people in America. Dr. Andrew Ordon explains it is an autoimmune condition where the body attacks the hair follicles and prevents them from growing normally.
