  • Try to see how long you can go without pulling and reward yourself
  • Find ways to keep your hands busy
  • Read up about trichotillomania, talk to someone else who suffers with it
  • Wear a wig or hair extensions — if you pull, you’re not pulling your real hair
  • Try fake nails. It makes it very hard to pull out hair
  • Cover your fingers with bandages
  • Pamper yourself dammit
  • Write a blog post about trichotillomania
