Do you wonder why you do this? Are you discouraged because you can’t control yourself? Do you want to do something to stop, but you just don’t know what to do? Do you realize that will power isn’t enough?
You are not alone. You have what is known as trichotillomania, a fancy word for hair pulling, and it is a very real medical condition. You aren’t crazy, and you aren’t to be blamed. And will power won’t solve the problem.
I understand that this news may be shocking and worrying, and hard to believe. But hair pulling is much more common than you think. No one is sure why the condition exists, but it CAN BE TREATED. I know because I stopped pulling my hair out, without expensive medication or therapy.
