The Bald Doll

The Bald Doll

Hey everyone! Remember Chloe (see her video below)? She has been a lead player in helping get bald Bratz/Moxie dolls produced. Originally, the dolls were meant to represent alopecia and cancer patients until they met Chloe and learned about trichotillomania. With Chloe’s influence, the dolls have been made and are now on shelves at ToysRUs. True Hope Bratz/Moxie dolls are largely targeted towards cancer patients, but have also helped to spread the word about trichtoillomania and alopecia, making bald more acceptable. For every doll sold, one dollar goes to the City of Hope Charity in California. Click here to go to the City of Hope website.

Below is a picture of Chloe introducing the dolls to Erin Brockovich!

Awesome job spreading awareness Chloe! Keep up the amazing work.

Katherine’s Video

Our first guest blog comes from Katherine who writes:

My name is Katherine, I am 16 years old and I have suffered from trichotillomania for over 5 years now. Everyday has been a battle with myself. I made these videos not only to document my journey with trich but also to reach out to fellow trichsters and help educate young people about trichotillomania. This specific video was made of me taking off my wig in order to show people how devastating trich can actually be . Please feel free to leave comments and view my other videos. I hope you have a pull free day!

As Katherine suggests, please visit the Trichotillomania Learning Center at trich.org to learn more about trich.
