Trichotillomania, a Hair Pulling Disorder, can cause feelings of frustration, embarrassment or social alienation because of the compulsive need one feels to pull out their hair, eyebrows, eyelashes or body hair resulting in noticeable hair loss and bald patches.
Although a disorder experienced by both genders, studies show that 80 – 90% of adult sufferers are women. The cause of the disorder can stem from genetics to environmental stressors, and many clients who visit Hair Prosthesis Centre will purchase a partial or full hair system to cover their hair loss.
Hair Prosthesis Centre offers a wide range of hair pieces that vary in style, color, length, coverage and more. You can choose to match your existing hair or go for a completely different look. Our hair loss experts are familiar with Trichotillomania and are professionally trained to help you make the best decision that fits your needs and lifestyle.
Many find the urge to pull their hair reduces when wearing a hair prosthesis system or wig due to the change in sensation. Stop by Hair Prosthesis Centre in Barrie for more information on solutions for trichotillomania.
