Hair Pulling (Trichotillomania) Disorder

According to the DSM V; Trichotillomania is the recurrent pulling of ones own hair from any region of the body which hair grows (scalp, eyelashes, axillary). Hair pulling sites may vary over times and can occur throughout different times in the day, in either brief or more sustained periods of time and leads to hair loss. Individuals with trichotillomania have made several attempts to stop or decrease their hair pulling and the hair pulling creates distress and impacts daily functioning.
