I've had to have a short haircut for a long time, because when I grow it long, it falls out more severely. I don't have an official diagnosis of Lupus, but do have an elevated ANA and some strange blood test numbers (low WBC, etc.).

I have short hair!!!!!
I remember when I was first diagnosed with Lupus, I had hair fall out. I never lost all my hair, but it definately got thinner. When my health improved, so did my hair growth (thickness).
In January I got my boyfriend to SHAVE OFF my shoulder-length hair!! I figured it was January - a new year, and short hair is way more convienient when travelling (in my opinion). He buzzed it off with the #4 clipper blade. I wasn't bald, but my boyfirend liked to (lovingly) tease me that I looked like a monk! haha. But I love it. I love short hair. You don't have to worry about blowdrying it or taking 50million years to style it. I actually just got it buzzed again a couple weeks ago!
Short hair is beautiful
