Trich= hair (Greek word
Mania= an obsessive
Trichotillomania (TTM) is an impulse-control
disorder that causes people to pull out the hair from their scalp,
eyelashes, eyebrows, or other parts of the body, resulting in
noticeable baldness. This disorder includes Hair Breakers, Hair
Pullers and Eaters. This condition is excelerated by the person having a traumatic experience such as puberty, death or excessive stress. Mostly females have this uncommon disorder.It can also be classified as a nervous condition, an addiction, or an obsessive-compulsive disorder similar to biting finger nails, sucking your thumb or smoking.
Physicians are recently proposing to
revise the name of this hair disorder to "Nueromechanical Alopecia"
to give it a more positive connotation.

Alopecia areata (al-oh-PEE-shah
air-ee-AH-tah) is an autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss
of hair on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. It occurs in both males
and females of all ages and races. However, it
usually begins in childhood and can be a life altering
In alopecia areata, the
affected hair follicles are mistakenly attacked by a person's own
immune system (white blood cells). This results in prevention of the hair growth. Alopecia areata usually
starts with one or more small, round, smooth bald patches on the
scalp and can progress to total scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis)
or complete body hair loss (alopecia universalis) or due to
forceful pulling or tension on the hair ( traction
Male Pattern Baldness
Androgenetic alopecia (also known as male
pattern baldness) occurs in both men and
women. Balding usually starts at any age after
puberty, and can range from partial loss to complete
baldness. It is a permanent hair
loss condition that can not be prevented. It can be caused by both hormonal ( androgens) and genetic factors( heredity).
Hair loss usually begins at the temples and
at the top of the head toward the back, causing a receding hairline
and a bald spot. In some circumstances, hair loss may continue
until the two sections become joined, which causes the top crown to
be completely bald. It usually progresses slowly and is not
associated with redness, itching, or pain.
Contrary to popular myth, balding is not
caused by wearing hats. Massaging or brushing the scalp will not
help regrow hair, and excessive cleaning of the scalp will not
"unclog" follicles and allow hair growth. Normal or
excessive everyday stress does not contribute to balding and
is not a cause of androgenetic alopecia.
The thyroid gland is a
bilobed structure surrounding the trachea.It produces thyroxine
which regulates cell metabolism in humans as well as all
mammals.Malfunction of the thyroid gland can lead to a condition
called a goiter. Hyperthyroid goiter tells the thyroid to
produce an excessive amount of thyroxine making it
overactive. Hypothyroid goiter depresses the amount
of thyroxine produced by the thyroid.
Both conditions affect the bodies metabolism.
Medications taken to help regulate the bodies production of
thyroxine also affects a human beings hair, nails and skin. Some
people that suffer with either of these conditioned are usually
having some form of hair loss.

hair loss) Caused by Physical stress, emotional stress, thyroid
