Trichotillomania Bullying- Graduate Donates To Bullied Trich Child
Once our Students feel that they could fight the Trichotillomania disorder without the use of their hairpiece, we want to know if they can donate it to another sufferer. In this case, after following up with one student who’s photos are shown below:
Trichotillomania Bullying- Pull-Free from TheSecretMane program motivates graduate to donate her hairpiece to a bullied Trich Child thousands of miles away.
Mom and dad says:
Charlene, Thank you for reaching out.
She is doing very well. She removed the hair piece in early January and has had only a few pulling episodes. She is feeling strong and proud of herself and her self esteem is growing all the time. The intervention of the piece was truly what she needed last fall. We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with you. She is sporting short, very curly hair now, and she looks great!
After stumbling upon a headline news about a bullied child who wears a hat to prevent her from pulling,
I remember our graduate’s family, showed them the video and asked if they’d be willing to donate their hairpiece to the HelpMe2Stop Foundation. And they did!
Below is our Graduate’s letter:
Letter from TheSecretMane Graduate (name hidden for privacy)
The HelpMe2Stop Foundation was unable to locate a salon in the Colorado area, where Genevieve, the young girl in the video lives, and asked if TheSecretMane would be willing to train her. Yes of course, we’d LOVE to!
The HelpMe2Stop non-profit raises worldwide awareness and donations to connect sufferers with hairstylists to help fund beauty services so that no child, teen and young adult have to grow up feeling insecure, ostracized, alienated and judged for their appearance and is working on recruiting and education more salons to include a Pull-Free salon hub throughout the US in project “Stop Pulling Hair Out Waiting For A Cure” campaign.

What is Trichotillomania?
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!
