When someone compulsively pulls the hair from their scalp, eyebrows or other parts of their body, they have a condition known as trichotillomania. This kind of hair pulling leads to bald spots, and when someone has trichotillomania, they often experience a significant amount of distress due to the urges and the hair loss. It can interfere with their level of functionality in daily life, and they may go to extremes to disguise the hair pulling and hair loss.
