The Hair …

As a person with Trich, keeping simple hairstyles is a must.

When I started, it was with an undercut, but ended up with most of my head shaved.

I love it. I mean, I really like it. Now, I can have long hair, and NOT have the headaches. Those ones have virtually stopped, even with having to wear a hat and ponytail daily at work.

Now, I still get the headaches, but now they’re sinus and stress related, and NOT because my hair weighs too much!

And since I’ve started Paxil, I’m noticing that my actual pulling has dropped drastically, as well. My anxiety is SO much better!

Oh, and so is my ability to pay attention! ?


Love Something About You


My hair doesn’t say much about me. I like it short because it’s easier to maintain. I hate it short because it gets in my face. I like it long because it gets curlier. I hate it long because it gives me headaches when it’s up. It’s thick, even with bald spots caused by trichotillomania. Sometimes you have to love your hair

An Honest Look at Myself

Just a video explaining what Trich is, and a start of how I deal with it. I would love more thoughts and ideas on possible follow-up videos, if you have any suggestions.
