September marks the month long commemoration of Alopecia Awareness worldwide. To culminate the month-long celebration in the country, Alopecia Philippines partnered with Novuhair for the #Beautiful Project Workshop held last September 28, 2014 at The Vault Manila, from 5:00 to 9:00 P.M.
Led by Alopecia Philippines founder, Abby Asistio, the event was designed to bring together people afflicted with alopecia and provide an avenue for the free-flowing exchange of information, sharing of experiences, and create a support system for everyone in the community.
With the help of Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss, #The Beautiful Project featured a talk on alopecia by renowned doctor, Dr. Cecilia Catapang. Abby, who’s also a Novuhair brand ambassador, gave a moving testimonial as to her journey to hair loss and eventual slow recovery from hair loss, thanks to Novuhair.
Attendees to the event were also treated to fun, games, and prizes courtesy of Novuhair, wigs from Lynelle: House of Hair Fashion, through the assistance of Ms. Jennifer Sevilla, and rousing performance by Aia de Leon of Imago.
Next year, Alopecia Philippines, together with Novuhair, hopes to reach more Filipinos in its goal of educating them about alopecia and empowering those who are already living with the reality of hair loss.
