Hello there. I have read through your question and would like to tell you that trichophagia is a psychological disorder and may lead to a serious problem like formation of hair ball in the intestine which will have to be removed surgically. You should consult a psychologist to help you in overcoming this impulse. Meanwhile you can follow the following steps to overcome the urge to pull your hair. 1. Wear a bandana or hat so that you don t pull your hair reflexively. 2. Wet your hair so that you can t pull it. 3. Stress is always a trigger so work on your stressors. 4. Try to divert yourself because boredom is one of the factors leading to excessive hair pulling. 5 . Join a support group. I hope this helps. If you have any further questions please feel free to write. Thank you for choosing healthcare magic.
