Causes of Trichotillomania

Research of causes and treatments of Trichotillomania are still in the early stages.  Studies have shown evidence that indicates Trich to be a neurobiological disorder and may be linked to one’s genetic makeup. Hair and eyelash pulling is often triggered by stress, anxiety and depression. People with Trichotillomania generally have a neurologically based predisposition to pull their hair as a self-soothing mechanism.

Patients have a hard time controlling this obsessive compulsive behavior due to the vicious cycle of complications that stems from Trich.  Hair pulling worsens the emotional instability that causes a patient to pull.  Hair pulling momentarily satisfies patients but in the long run results in a serious emotional consequence, such as severe self-consciousness, poor self-image, low self-esteem, and other lifestyle setbacks.  Individuals who pull tend to feel “freakish” or “crazy” because of the abnormal behavior and its effects.
