Trichotillomania, Trich, is the chronic behavior of pulling out ones on hair. People with Trich generally pull their hair out absentmindedly while doing other things such as reading or watching TV. No one knows exactly what causes it. There is evidence that it is partly genetic in nature. Chronic Trich generally starts around puberty but can start as young as infancy. Trich may come and go throughout a person's entire life.
