D23 Study 2
The Effect of a Mindfulness-based Professional Hair Treatment and Haircut on the Hair Pulling Behavior of Trichotillomania Patients
For this experimental open label study I developed a mindfulness-based hair care treatment and a training for hair professionals. I recruited hair professionals and people with hair pulling disorder through my personal, professional, and academic network, online communities and social media.
The aim of this research project is to find out what experiences those affected by trichotillomania have with a hair appointment specifically created for them, which influencing factors play a role and whether this measure has an effect on hair-pulling behavior and self-confidence.
Life is a big puzzle.
We are some of the many pieces.
Within each of us there are infinite smaller puzzles, hair pulling disorder is one of them.
