Trichotillomania (Hair-Pulling)

Trichotillomania (Hair Pulling, TTM, trich) is characterized by recurrent pulling of hair, resulting in hair loss, in spite of repeated attempts to stop. Hair may be pulled from scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, pubic area, underarms, and other parts of the body. The treatment of choice for the Hair-Pulling Disorder is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), specifically - Habit-Reversal Training, and the Comprehensive Model for Behavioral Treatment of Trichotillomania.
