Trichotillomania is a disorder that involves recurrent, irresistible urges to pull out hair from you scalp, eyebrows, or other areas of your body, despite trying to stop. Hair pulling from the scalp can leave patchy bald spots, which can cause significant distress and can interfere with one’s social and work life. Often people with trichotillomania will go to great lengths to hide the loss of their hair.
Sometimes people with trichotillomania pull intentionally, they feel the urge and feel they have to act on it for relief. Other’s pull without realizing they’re doing it. People with trichotillomania rarely stop pulling on their own. If left untreated the hair will become so damaged that it may never grow back.
