Trichotillomania causes of hair loss psychological condition

Trichotillomania

An impulse control disorder and often referred to as Trich or TTM, is hair loss caused by someone having an irresistible urge to pull out their own hair.

Most common in women, hair is usually pulled from the scalp, eyelashes and eyebrows. As it’s a disorder, there is little to no control over a person’s urge to pull.

Here at Morgan’s we understand this. We have dealt with and helped many people with Trichotillomania. 

Hormones causes of hair loss pregnancy menopause

Hormones

Hair thinning in women can commonly be caused by menopause, pregnancy and other drastic hormonal changes. 

Most women experience overall hair thinning rather than noticeable bald spots. The thinning can occur on the front, sides, or top of the head. Hair may also fall out in large clumps during brushing and showering.

Research suggests that hair loss during menopause is the result of a hormonal imbalance. Specifically, it’s related to a lowered production of estrogen and progesterone.

Chronic Illness

Covid-19 has proved to bring a surprising symptom with it, causing hair loss in many people. Covid has been added to a long list of chronic illnesses that can cause hair loss. 

A traumatic event can also cause sudden loss of hair loss. Usually it can grow back without any treatment, but it may be that you want to look at some temporary help to get through while you have thinning or patchy hair. 

We have seen more and more people visit us over the past 18 months and have a lot of experience in helping people deal with this temporary loss of hair.
