I know what your are talking about. Recurrent pulling out of one's hair resulting in noticeable hair loss. An increasing sense of tension immediately before pulling out the hair or when attempting to resist the behavior. Pleasure, gratification, or relief when pulling out the hair. Thisis a type of compulsive behavior and its causes are not clearly understood. Symptoms usually begin before the age of 17.
