Rebecca's hair changes length throughout the video. She says, "At the time of each shave, I am roughly half bald, more so round the sides and back. By shaving the hair that is left, it stops me ripping out more and allows my head to heal."

Trichotillomania is a lifelong struggle. Rebecca still loses hair, but not on the same scale. To learn more about the disorder, and to see Rebecca's entire body of work so far, check out her channel.
