What is Trichotillomania Disorder

Trichotillomania is an impulse control disorder that involves strong urges to pull one’s own hair out. This can be hair on one’s head, eyelashes, eyebrows or other body hairs.

Trichotillomania can start as early as age 1 and continue into adolescence. The peak age when trichotillomania occurs is 9 to 13 years of age. It can occur due to stress or depression and it is thought to affect about 3.4% of females and 1.5% of males.

Trichotillomania hair lossTrichotillomania sufferers feel a moment of relief from their worries after pulling out their hair but this feeling only last a short time.

This then becomes a habit and the longer it goes on, the harder it can be to resist the urge.

You may feel isolated and alone with this condition but there is help out there. Speak with your Doctor or join a support group for people with Trichotillomania where you can meet others with similar experiences who can relate to your feelings.

At Hairweavon, we supply a range of wigshair pieces and hair extensions for women dealing with Trichotillomania.
