How to stop hair pulling? Treatment for Trichotillomania provides cure with a guarantee. Blog post by someone who overcame hair picking and now inspires others to stop pulling out their hair too.

Feeling sad and unhappy by the results of me pulling out my own hair, behavior with a very strange name – Trichotillomania

The first couple of years when I suffered from Trichotillomania and pulled out my hair from my head you could hardly see any of the consequences on the outside.

I was a normal teenager, was never being bullied, went to school like all the other kids, did my best, had a couple of great friends, nice parents and a wonderful sister.

But on the inside the sadness in me was growing.

I had difficulty understanding the world around me and at the same time was doing something what seemed very strange, pulling out my own hair!

Ignore, ignore, ignore was my motto. And as years went by, I kept hoping that the hair pulling behavior would simply stop one day. Unfortunately it did not.

I can tell you from the bottom of my heart that ignoring Trichotillomania in your life is not the solution. The behavior is compulsive and any compulsive behavior will seldom just go away by itself as I learned the hard way initially!

Facing and admitting that you have a problem when you pull out your own hair

Facing and admitting that you have a problem when you pull out your own hair may seem difficult at first. But from my own experience I can assure you that in the long-term it’s the best thing you can do for yourself.

Solutions and understanding are often a lot closer than you may think. And I truly believe that you always have a problem because you are also capable of solving it.

But only once you’re open to this. To take the opportunity for learning and growing. And to be completely honest and respectful to yourself for wanting and deserving a better quality of life by overcoming Trichotillomania.
