“These habits appear in people from childhood. You simply do not notice how you damage the structure of the hair, which subsequently break off. For example, trichotillomania, when the hair is frayed out of habit at the roots. They break off, and we see external alopecia “the medic said.

She also mentioned habits such as chewing and sucking. The doctor referred to articles describing the removal of hair from the stomach through surgery. The doctor added that such habits can develop into obsessions, so they can not always be dealt with on their own. Such problems are dealt with by a neuropsychiatrist.
