Trichotillomania (/ˌtrɪkəˌtɪləˈmeɪniə/trik-ə-til-ə-may-nee-ə, also known as trichotillosis or hair pulling disorder) is an impulse disorder characterized by the compulsive urge to pull out one’s hair, leading to noticeable hair loss and balding, distress, and social or functional impairment. It appears in the ICD chapter 5 on Mental and behavioural disorders and is often chronic and difficult to treat.
Trichotillomania may be present in infants, but the peak age of onset is 9 to 13. It may be triggered by depression or stress. Owing to social implications the disorder is often unreported and it is difficult to accurately predict its prevalence; the lifetime prevalence is estimated to be between 0.6% and 4.0% of the overall population. Common areas for hair to be pulled out are the scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, legs, arms, hands, nose and the pubic areas.
What are some of the Trichotillomania Treatments used today?
Many health care professionals may use Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of treatment that focuses on examining the relationships between thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
Other health care professionals prescribe anti-depressants like Sertraline (Zoloft and Prescription drug. This medicine is an SSRI that treats depression, anxiety, and other disorders.
Some sufferers try Cognitive behavioral hypnotherapy (CBH) is an integrated psychological therapy employing clinical hypnosis and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
But TheSecretMane, uses beautiful hair. Any women, sufferer or not, whenever she experiences a bad hair day, she is unable to function properly in any setting, such as her job, her school or on a date. She may even have no desire to go to school or on the date. But when her hair looks good, she feels great. Which is why there are organizations, like the American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program, which provides makeup and skin care so that women suffering from chemotherapy are able to feel better during treatment and as a result the path to recovery becomes easier to bear. With TheSecretMane program, sufferers are given a kit which contains hair and all the products necessary to install and remove the hair, whether on their own or with the help of a professional Trich experienced stylist. Not only does the hair hide the disorder, but it also prevents access to pulling out their natural hair. In addition, the sufferer can enjoy an active lifestyle like swimming and roller coaster rides with this hair. She won’t have to think about it for a month as this is how long the average wearer keeps it in for, till the next maintenance. Over time, with continuous maintenance, the sufferer is able to manage and control her hair pulling and many times have NO DESIRE TO PULL! This is what makes TheSecretMane program successful since 2004! The longest student is over 10 years PULL-FREE WITH NO recurrence of the disorder!

How to Treat Trichotillomania at Home
A Trichotillomania Sufferer from Europe checked out my YouTube video and thought the product I offer may well be a solution to her hair-pulling disorder.
After numerous emails back and forth choosing from color swatches and waiting patiently in the mail for her template, I created a solution and shipped it to her.
Remember… a hair loss solution doesn’t have to be far away…
How to Treat Trichotillomania at Home
Overall I've been so pleased with the extensions - they are a really good match and blend in so well with my hair. The glue is amazing - I was so worried it wouldn't stand up to the heat in South Africa (109 degrees!!!!) I can't begin to tell you how amazing it's been not to worry about my hair looking so thin on top - as having the pieces at the top of my head they wouldn't have looked completely natural - but I didn't have to worry about the wind exposing my bald patches at the top - it was just SO amazing not to have to worry all the time!!! :)))
My hair at the top is growing nicely - I removed the extensions 3 weeks ago (that's the worst part - removing them really takes patience!) It's growing through white so I don't know if the colour will ever come back, but the main thing is that it's growing, slowly but surely! I just put extensions straight back on again after I'd washed and dried my hair before I had a chance to attack the top again!
So, aside from the fact that the extensions don't stop me pulling from other areas - I'm so happy that they at least make me feel better about myself and look better and in that respect I am so happy with them!
