Wigs for Trichotillomania - Hair Pulling Solutions

What is Trichotillomania? 

Trichotillomania is an uncontrollable compulsive urge to pull out his or her hair. Hair pulling can be devastating to a person’s life, making it hard to be social. It can also make a person feel overwhelmed with feelings of heavy dark emotions. And of course, it could have an extremely negative impact on a person’s physical appearance according to societal views.

There are several forms of treatment for people who suffer from trichotillomania in order to manage the disorder such as awareness bracelets designed to change your behavior, however, there is no instant solution to re-grow the hair that was pulled out. Trichotillomania wigs are an excellent option to cope with the physical aspects of trichotillomania. 

Designed for Trichotillomania Sufferers

Trichotillomania wigs are a little different than the average wig. The wigs for hair pullers are typically designed with the notion that the skin on the top of the head of a person suffering from the disorder is extremely sensitive. This level of sensitivity is heightened due to the fact that the hairs on the head have been yanked out by force. As a result, the base of a good trichotillomania wig; that is, the part that fits onto the scalp will be made of comfortable lace material.

In addition, realism is the most important detail to us when making an exceptional trichotillomania wig. To achieve this realistic hair look, our wigs are made from human hair on a sheer lace base. The hair is treated and colored so it looks as natural as possible.

It's Time to Regain Your Confidence

Wearing a trichotillomania wig can be an immensely powerful tool for you if you are suffering from this disorder because it does more than hide your compulsive hair pulling. It gives you a mentally healing boost in your self-confidence. One of the biggest side effects of trichotillomania are feelings of guilt or depression over the act, and these feelings are known to be one of the possible causes of the disorder, thus creating an endless vicious cycle. Trichotillomania wigs help break this cycle, which in turn returns a state of self-worth that may otherwise be lost.
