The integrated hair system is also suitable for sufferers of Trichotillomania (TTM). TTM often ignored as not a serious issue or much less talked about in the fields of hair loss is also a significant psychological and physical contributor to hair loss. The common associations to TTM are impulse controlled characteristics and desire to pull out hairs. This procedure is commonly repeated on the scalp, eyebrows, lashes or any part of the body that has hair. TTM has a similar tendency to those suffering from obsessive compulsive disorders and also varies in its dynamics and complexities as a both physical and mental disorder.
Impulse-control disorders are more common among teenagers and young adults. Trichotillomania tends to affect girls more than boys. Psychological and behavioral theories suggest that hair pulling may be a way of relieving stress or anxiety.
In some cases, trichotillomania may be a form of self-harm, where the person deliberately injures themselves as a way of seeking temporary relief from emotional distress.
The hair integration provided can be used as a permanent or temporary solution whilst the hair is growing back or even used as a shield against pulling out the hairs. In addition, it can also cover large patches of hair loss where a full system will not be required. TTM suffers tend to feel ashamed of what they have done to their hair and this can often lead to isolation and a less active social life due to their appearances.
The specially designed system will be undetectable and natural both to feel and look and thus allowing for more concentration on getting the psychological factors associated with TTM dealt with.
