That seems like a very difficult behavior to control. Just watching it made me feel a bit worried I do not want to catch this type of behavior. I had read a related topic before which concerns ingesting the hair after pulling it. I can not begin to think how someone would do that.

Good to know that there is an English sub now. Good job.

I have watched this kind of video before on Oprah Winfrey's show before where someone has this disorder it's really sad because one cannot control the urge to pull hair. It's quite sad to watch

I knew someone long ago who would pull out her hair whenever she got nervous. It was something she developed when she was little. You would think that the pain would be a motivator for her not to do it, but it was not. I have not seen her in a long time and wonder if she ever got help to stop pulling out her hair.

I think it's a bit like cutting, the pain of pulling out the hair relieves the emotional pain. It's hard to understand if you don't suffer from it but I know a little girl who is doing this and she has a very troubled family life.

I think sprite1950 hit the nail on the head with her comment. Disorders like anorexia, bulemia, cutting, tearing hair out are a pretty clear indication that deep mental and emotional issues exist, for that individual. I'm unable to identify with these types of disorders; but, I know that the behavior can be habitual.

Ideally, an individual would eventually enter into some type of therapy where they can develop healthy self-esteem and self love. :thumbup:

This kind of behaviour is painful for those who cannot control it.
Yes, we have english subtitles in all our videos!

You are absolutely right. That's not easy to control this kind of behavior. People need a good diagnostic and treatment.
Thank you for your comment!

The person that you knew had almost all requirements for developing this kind of behaviour. For example: it's a women and young at the time that started to pull her hair.
That's not easy to stop without treatment. I hope that she was able to overcame the problem!
Thank you for your comment!

It's common that people feel a relief just after they pull the hair. This kind of behaviour is almost always related with low self esteem, anxiety, stress and depression. It's also common in persons who were diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder.

Sometimes the remorse of pulling the hair leads the person to punish her self. And the self pushment is pulling more hair... the result is a vicious cicle. Perhaps this is what's happening with the girl that you know.
Thank you for your comment!

Trichotillomania is, indeed, related with low self esteem and negative emotions. Is imperative a good treatment and psychotherapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy tends to be effective in this kind of issues.

I had a friend who suffered from this as a teen, and her hair was really thin on top as an adult because of it. She often wore hairpieces and creatively posed for her pictures to disguise the baldness. It embarrassed her, but is wasn't something she could really control on her own.

You touched in 2 important facts that we spoke in our video: the use of hair pieces and another techniques to hide the problem and the consequences of this behaviour that affects the self esteem of those who can not control their behaviour.

Great video! I went through a phase of pulling my hair (and ended up with a bald patch, :() because I didn't like the thick, almost black hairs on my brown hair (they have a weird texture).

This kind of behaviour is more common that we can think at a first sight. I hope you are ok now! :)
