Trichotillomania is believed to affect 2-5% of the population and 80-90% of reported cases are women.  The average age of onset is 11, however pulling can start at any age.  Children under the age of 6 years old usually stop hair pulling after 12 months.

The diagnosis criteria for Trich in the mental health field include a presence of multiple symptoms:

  1. Hair pulling that results in noticeable hair loss
  2. Relief and gratification during pulling
  3. Increased tension when resisting pulling
  4. Significant impairment in social functions due to pulling

I am an author, a consultant and a mother of three young children. I was also a hair puller for over 35 years. But I am finally pull free and have been for over 4 years! I’d like to share with you my journey and why I developed the revolutionary Trich Stop Kit and Trich Stop Oil.
