What is Trichotillomania?

Trichotillomania (TTM) is a mental health condition marked by the repetitive pulling out of one’s hair for non-cosmetic reasons, resulting in noticeable hair loss along with clinically significant academic, social, and/or occupational impairment.

Trichotillomania is also known as “hair-pulling disorder” and is a type of impulse control disorder. While the person is aware of the fact that the habit can be damaging, they are unable to control the impulse. Individuals with TTM may pull out hair from their scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, underarms, pubic, chin, chest, or leg areas.

In some cases, the condition may be mild and manageable, for others however, it can prove to be quite debilitating. There are some treatment options that have been proven to reduce hair-pulling urges entirely. There is no proven way to prevent the condition. However, getting early treatment can help improve the prognosis to a great extent.
