KIDS PULL THEIR HAIR ALL THE TIME.
Throughout life, some degree of hair pulling is normal. Kids pull their own and each other’s. Teens twirl their hair between their fingers. Adults can find themselves literally pulling their hair out due to frustration or stress. None of these indicates a more serious disorder. Trichotillomania is what happens when the urge to pull hair becomes compulsive and the behavior cannot be voluntarily stopped. Many people aren’t even aware when they’re actively pulling their hair.
HAIR HELP ISN’T JUST FOR WOMEN WITH ALOPECIA.
At Unique Hair Concepts, we understand the causes and results of Trichotillomania. We’ve been helping men, women, and children of all ages deal with their hair pulling for the last 24 years. If you or a loved one is struggling to stop pulling hair, we can be a resource for you. We’ll find natural-looking ways to fill in your hair if you have bald patches. We’ll take great care of your scalp, especially if pulling has caused pain or inflammation. And we’ll help you take steps to reduce stress and eliminate triggers that bring on the urge to pull hair. Since there is a psychological component to Trichotillomania, we can connect you with specialists who practice Cognitive Therapy or Commitment Therapy – types of counseling that can resolve the causes of this type of hair loss.
BEYOND THE SCALP
We understand that hair pulling isn’t confined to the scalp, and trichotillomania can rob women of eyebrows as well. After searching the market for the most natural eyebrow prosthetic available, we’re finally able to offer completely personalized eyebrow prosthetics. Our eyebrows use real hair implanted into a clear, micro-thin base to mimic natural eyebrow growth and replace what’s been lost.
If hair pulling is starting to affect your life, call Unique Hair Concepts. We’re here to help.
