What is Trichotillomania?

Trichotillomania is a mental health disorder characterized by repetitive hair-pulling, resulting in hair loss and significant distress.

Trichotillomania, also known as hair-pulling disorder, is a chronic mental health condition where individuals experience irresistible urges to pull out their own hair, leading to hair loss and often causing physical and emotional distress. This disorder typically begins in childhood or adolescence and can persist into adulthood. Hair-pulling may occur from the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, or other body areas. Trichotillomania can have a significant impact on an individual's self-esteem, as it may lead to noticeable hair loss and visible bald patches. Treatment for trichotillomania may involve cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), medication, and support to help individuals control their urges, reduce hair-pulling behaviors, and address any underlying emotional and psychological issues.
