With the fear of stigmatization, some go to the extent of showing tattoo designs on their head in replacement of the natural hair but even that does not go well with them.

Bald women who mastered courage to be in school have faced all kinds of mockery from friends in school. Some already gave up from schooling and decided to stay indoors doing nothing just to avoid humiliations from people they are living with.
