Trichotillomania is the irresistible urge to pull out your hair from the scalp and other hair existing areas of the body; mostly in secret. Trich is a disorder sometimes caused by stress or an imbalance in brain chemicals. This disorder can alter one’s self image and thus affect they way they act socially. Internally, they may experience feelings of self-hatred, shame, and depression. Externally, they may have visible bruising of the scalp and other affected areas. Some sufferers even start to eat the hair that they pull causing intestinal obstruction and vomiting. These side affects are caused by undigested hair in the stomach and intestine.
If you or someone you know is suffering from trich there is help. The first step is to acknowledge that you are dealing with this disorder. Next, seek out a professional health care expert that can identify if there is an imbalance in your brain chemicals or if you are experiencing high levels of stress. After you receive your treatment regimen then and only then should you seek out a professional hair stylist. Be sure to find someone that you trust so that you will be able to honestly discuss the length of time you have been having these urges and the reasons why. Your stylist needs this information so that he/she may lead you in the proper hair restoration direction.
I want to encourage those of you who are dealing with Trich by letting you know that you do not have to continue to deal with it on your own. There are people who can help you manage your lifestyle. Be brave! Good luck.
PI am just a girl who loves her job (owning and styling at HUC!) and is pretty good at explaining hair to other people.
