With Trichotillomani illness, a person pulls the hair out causing bald spots to the head. The pain in doing this stimulates the reward center of the brain so that one feels satisfied and relieved. One pulls out the hair strands when feeling tense and worried.

The effect is only temporary and the discomfort will returns. It is better to try to find real solutions to the problems.
