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!

What if your health wasn’t endangered using harmful side-effect drugs doctors prescribe you with so you could stop pulling?
What if there are absolutely no side effects that may cause you to end up pulling hair in other areas of your head, causing your Trichotillomania to worsen?

Trichotillomania Do It Yourself DIY Treatment Testimonies
“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!”
A few years ago you made me a beautiful ombre hair piece that I loved but now unfortunately, because I used it soooo much, is past it’s prime and all nasty. And now I’m looking to get a new one! Even though it’s a great deal, I’m unable to pay the full price right now and was wondering if you are offering any discounts soon (last tone I ordered or was a great 50% off!). I’ve been without my piece for about a year and my bald spot has gotten very bad so I really need your help back in my life haha. Anyway, let me know if you’ll be running any specials soon. I can’t wait to wear my hair down again!! I really want it to grow some before summer. 🙂
It has been a while since I have been in touch with you! I have been using tape to apply my hair pieces on and off for about a year now (Klix extensions). I LOVE how the pieces feel on my head and really help me to stop pulling my hair. Sometimes I try to go without, but so far have not been very successful without having the pieces taped to my head.
2014 isabella went to (2) homecoming dances this year. she refused to go last year. she never said, but I know it was because of her trich and her lack of confidence. she even asked a tall, handsome, sporty, smart boy to come to her homecoming. he said yes! i thank you for the confidence you helped give her. her hair looked beautiful and she looked happy.
2015 Happy Holidays Charlene!
Update: Isabella has been pull free for almost a year and a half. Her hair was long enough to sport a short haircut in February this year and her hair is almost bra length now.
We really think her hair piece gave her the hope to start over and would like to donate it. Her second hair piece was only lightly used. We also have a whole new glue and product left over.
Please let us know if you would help with the donation. Thanks!
I am doing great! I just started grad school at Alabama, I LOVE it! 🙂
I don’t know where I’d be right now without you! You really changed my life!! I’ve have the confidence to do so many things that I wouldn’t have been able to do before! I cannot thank you enough for all that you’ve done for me. You’re such a blessing!!!
My daughter can finally wear her hair down for the first time in almost two years. I think she wore the same headband for the last year and a half. (she feared other headbands would fall off and people would see her trich areas)
I did not know when I would fit the installation in our busy schedule to attach the extension so setting up a free video consultation was difficult. I watched the videos and read the directions several times. One night we decided to just go for it. I was scared cutting the hairpiece and nervous to put it on, but we did it.
My daughter was so happy. You can see her glowing in a few of her pictures with her red checks. I can not thank you enough.
