October 1-7 is National Trichotillomania Awareness Week

Did you know that over 100 million women worldwide feel the urge to pull their hair out?
A shocking three percent of the world's population will suffer from Trichotillomania (TTM) at some point in their lives but the vast majority of us have never heard of it.

TTM Facts:
110 million people suffer from TTM worldwide
Less than 10% of women seek treatment
It is more common in females
50% report pulling is worse when under stress

So why do so many feel the need to pull out their hair?
The majority of TTM sufferers pull to serve as a coping mechanism for anxiety and other difficult emotions, and it is often done sub-consciously. What starts as a small habit can escalate dramatically and can sometimes result in complete loss of hair.

If you suffer from TTM and need help now then please call the Ricky Knowles Hair and Wellness Team at 713-623-4247. Our team is has created a safe and comfortable environment to assist you in your path to recovery.
