D23 Study 1 Currently in evaluation phase
Experiences, Attitudes and Habits of People with Hair Pulling Disorder regarding their Hair, Personal and Professional Hair Care and Haircutting
The aim of this online survey is documentation and learning. We hope that, based on the results, we will first gain a better understanding of specific personal and professional hair care needs and then be able to develop hair care interventions that can support people in coping with their hair pulling behavior.

D23 Study 2
The Effect of a Mindfulness-based Professional Hair Treatment and Haircut on the Hair Pulling Behavior of Trichotillomania Patients
For the second experimental open label study I am developing a mindfulness-based hair care treatment and a training for hair professionals. In the meantime I am recruiting hair professionals and people with hair pulling disordera trough my personal and professional 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.
