What Are The Best Tips Or Products For Dealing With Hair Pulling?

What has helped you deal with trichotillomania?

Some people have a compulsive hair-pulling disorder called trichotillomania.

According to the NHS, trichotillomania is a type of "impulse-control disorder, a psychological condition where the person is unable to stop themselves carrying out a particular action".

People with trichotillomania might pull out the hair on their head, eyebrows, eyelashes, arms, or other places. The physical side effects of compulsive hair pulling can lead to feelings of low self-esteem, increased anxiety, and other negative emotions.

Alongside seeking professional help, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, we want to know what helps you deal with hair pulling.

Do you use a stress ball to keep your hands occupied and help relieve anxiety?

Or perhaps beauty tricks, makeup hacks, or eyebrow wigs have been game changers for your journey ?

Maybe thumb guards have been really useful for you?

Whatever you do to help deal with trichotillomania, we want to hear about it.
