Our own Charity Bailey is helping spread the word about women and alopecia by featuring the powerful story of her own sister's battle with the hair loss disease. Elisabeth "Libby" Barnett was diagnosed with alopecia when she was 12 years old and suffered years of embarrassment and discomfort as she tried to cover her condition. Now 28 and a teacher, Libby has made the bold decision to fully shave her head and finally be true to herself, while hopefully inspiring other women.
 
Watch the emotional moment when her supportive husband takes a pair of clippers and proves that love is more than hair deep!
