Description

 







Episode 012 of Get Naked LIVE features Kaila Boulware, President of the Baldie Movement.  Kaila has been struggling with alopecia for ten years and there were days when she was afraid to leave her room without something covering her head; but FED UP with hiding, she looked at herself in the mirror about two years ago, and declared, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Today, SHE'S BALD! SHE'S NAKED! SHE'S FREE!! Tune in to today's episode of Get Naked LIVE and hear how she finally kicked fear in the butt and started walking in freedom and wholeness.



 



Kaila Boulware  gets naked about loving yourself from the OUTSIDE in while living with alopecia.

"From birth, we are taught that our hair is a major part of our beauty. But, what if we don't have any!? Are we not beautiful? Of course we are! But how do we come to learn, and accept our beauty as bald women in a world that tell us we are not so?"



Kaila addresses these questions throughout her interview while taking us on a journey of how she learned to embrace her physical nakedness, which in turn taught her how to embrace her emotional nakedness.

Some of the episode's defining moments include:



* How alopecia affected her confidence and self-esteem

* Viewing beauty from a perspective that promotes loving yourself unconditionally

* The black girl starter kit and common myths about being bald

* Dating as a baldie and how she met her husband AFTER she shaved her head

* Loving yourself with or without hair -- no matter your size, or shape

* Defining beauty on your own terms
