Evidence based treatment for trichotillomania (hair pulling) includes the Comprehensive Model for Behavioral Treatment (ComB). Have you ever wondered why you can't stop? The reasons behind hair pulling can be very complex. ComB consists of evaluating the functions of hair pulling, and applying interventions to match.
Hair pulling is a type of body focused repetitive behavior. It is characterized by recurrent pulling out of one’s hair, resulting in hair loss, and unsuccessful repeated attempts to decrease or stop hair pulling.
Hair pulling can lead to feelings of shame, increased isolation, anxiety, and avoidance of certain activities - hair cuts, swimming, etc.
Some individuals with trichotillomania also have trichophagia, meaning they will ingest the hair. Trichophagia can lead to serious medical complications.
