Re: Does hair grow back when pulled from the root?

Yes. I used to pull out a lot of my hairs and once I realized how much hair I pulled, I stopped. I've seen pretty good growth in about three months. Give it a few months and make sure to use a good conditioner and if you style your hair make sure to use product on it like hair polish or something with heat defense in it. I've started using a Smooth 'N Shine Therapy conditioner every time I wash my hair(about once a week) and it's been about two or three months and it really makes your hair healthier, stronger, shinier, and my hair has definitely grown a lot since I've started using it, and less split ends doesn't hurt either. HTH!

My hairs that grew back looked like that. Using a really good conditioner and washing only 1 or 2 times a week helps keep them under control. Hair is always drier after washing, even if you condition religiously, which makes rough hairs feel rougher. Using products such as polishers and deep conditioners will help those hairs relax and stay smooth, and as those hairs grow, they'll probably become less rough and frizzish.

No worries hun, when I was younger I had trichotillomania and I would compulsively pull my hair out so much where I would have bald spots on my head! (I sound crazy, I'm not I promise lol) And now I have a thick head of hair again. If you want you can try something like Biotin(sp?) to speed it up if its noticeable! My mom put me on a regimen on vitamins and that seemed to help and just be really gentle when washing and brushing, no teasing your hair there! lol

Hi guys!

 

I have a simular question to the thread-starter, so I didn't want to start a new thread. And I hope the thread-starter is ok with my following question on this thread.

 

Basically someone pulled two chunks out of my hair, at the back of my head, and so I now have two bald spots right at the back of my head!

 

My question is basically will it grow back (there is absolutely no hair in these areas and I'm pretty worried as I take great pride in my hair!) ?

 

Any advice is much appreciated and sorry if I should have posted a new thread rather than in an existing one!

Ah that sounds bad, how do you stop yourself from pulling it out? At least you can cover up though, hey.

 

Well my hair is not very long at the moment, probably similar to Justin Biebers hair when it was long *cringes* (I'm a guy by the way). So yeah, I usually wear my hair sort of swept to the sides, so the only way I could cover it up would be to blow dry it all backwards, but I think it may still show. I'll give it a go and see how it looks but I'm not optimistic!

I think about cutting my hair too, but then everytime I do it I end up regretting it and waiting months for it to grow back which is a total pain! I'll have to to wear a hat for the next few weeks till it comes back, in the middle of the summer!

A few people mentioned trichotillomania here and I hope I can share some advice I've seen as useful to a friend of mine.  CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) is often first recommended to those who have access to therapy.  My friend tried this to limited success, but it can really help some people, so definitely give it a go if you haven't.

 

She started using 5 HTP which helped a bit.  She moved to the use of Lithium with some success too, but was moved onto Clompiramine (an antidepressant) coupled with Naltrexone.  This really helped her and she has been able to keep it under control since!  I'd just recommend seeing what options there are out there to help through your GP and therapist.

 

The important thing to remember is that hair usually grows back, even when pulled out.  It can take a while I'm afraid, sometimes quite a few months, but it does tend to grow back over time.  If the follicle gets damaged then there's a chance hair might not grow back, but generally speaking it will come back.  Trichotillomania sounds like a really hard thing to deal with - try and do your best to be proactive with the different treatments available, until you find one that helps!

Hi I have trich it doesn't go away you can redirect it to another spot on your body and it will suffice if the hair folicals are the same pleasure threshold so think of sensitive spots on your body and similar thickness good spots I try and I'm a man are nipple hair and behind and to the side of the groun area
