Trichotillomania

Trichotillomania is defined as a self-induced and recurrent loss of hair.

Hair loss in any form is not easy to deal with, and people struggling with Trichotillomania (TTM) experience a unique form of hair loss. They pull out their own hair themselves. This behavior can create much shame, self directed anger and feelings of being out of control.

Compulsive hair pulling is a medical condition that affects one in 50 people. That is 3-9 million Americans and women are four times more likely to be affected than men. It’s a type of impulse control disorder, often influenced by emotional stress, environmental factors, hormones, diet and extra sensory needs.

Trichotillomania is treatable. We encourage you discuss your condition with a medical professional or a cognitive behavioral therapist who may help you get it under control.

Many who suffer with Trichotillomania have never been to a professional hair salon because they fear sharing this secret aspect of themselves.

As experienced professionals we at LaDonna Roye Hairstylist & Hair Loss Solutions understand and encourage you to contact us. Simply advise us of the level of privacy you require. We have a private room and will be happy to give you an appointment when we can assure your utmost privacy.

A hair loss specialist can offer solutions to help cope with Trichotillomania. We have found that often the area that the patient is compelled to pull out can be covered with a hairpiece or wig helping patients to not pull out their own hair.
