Hair pulling: is a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. You need to be treated for this by someone who specializes in OCD. Anti-depressant medications can be helpful through your doc or a psychiatrist even though you may not be depressed. Hair is likely to grow back but you need to treat the root of the situation. Peace and good health. Symptoms are simply the branch.
