Hair pulling
Post: 

Hi everyone I'be been pulling my hair for 12/13 years now and I'm fed up! Has anyone got any tips on how to stop or reduce it? I mainly pull at my eyelashes and hairline, however it's becoming more noticeable on my hair line and it's getting me down. Any advice appreciated x

Immerse yourself into some physical activies/sports/martial arts, anything keeping your mind and hands busy. Do it as often as you can. Distract yourself.
