Trichotillomania Stories

Sarah’s Story

I was diagnosed with Trichotillomania, or the hair-pulling disorder, when I was 13 years old. At first, I thought “What do you mean I'm pulling my own hair out? That's crazy, why would I do that?!” After a few months of thinking that, I began to develop a bald spot at the top of my head, and my hair grew thinner and thinner each day. I started to wear my hair in a ponytail until I developed more bald patches. People at school started to notice and ask me why I had so many bald patches. I was extremely insecure about it, so my mom and I started looking for somewhere to get a wig—we discovered Hair Enhancements of Pittsburgh. When we went for my consultation, I immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. Now being a 21-year-old, soon-to-be mom of two and an everyday wig- wearer, I still struggle with trichotillomania, but I am probably the most comfortable in my own skin as I've ever been. I am thankful for everyone at Hair Enhancements for allowing me to be more comfortable in my own skin while tackling my trichotillomania.
