Are you alone?
Many men, women and children are suffering from the body-focused repetitive hair pulling disorder called Trichotillomania. Once thought to be very rare evidence now shows that 2 to 3% of the population (that’s 1-2 in 50) have this disorder. It can show up in childhood, but most start pulling in their teenage years and for some in adulthood. Trichotillomania is an obsessive compulsive behavior that can cause complications of hair loss, infection, scarring and slowed or stopped hair growth at pulling sites. Most sufferers are very secretive about their pulling. Trich LLC, through Hairpullingdisorderhelp.com, is determined to be a resource for education, tools and support for sufferers, their friends and families.
