I began in high school by picking split ends. That turned into pulling out any coarse hairs I found, which really kicked everything off. I part my hair on the left and have only pulled on the right side on the top of my head. It was getting better but I have been stressed lately and pull even when I don't realize. Today I bent down in front of a mirror and I saw a huge patch of white scalp on the top of my head. I'm so upset at how bad it's gotten. I had an appointment to dye my hair dark and now I feel too embarrassed to even go. I'm at a loss and can't believe I let it get so bad.
