Do you engage in hair pulling?  

We are conducting a study to learn more about hair pulling and need your help.  Deakin University in Australia are conducting two research studies that will examine how people with Trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder) manage their emotions, and the role that emotions play in hair pulling behaviour.

This research involves 2 studies conducted online:
  • An online survey that will take about 30 minutes and ask about your hair pulling and how you manage your emotions. After this you can enter a prize draw to win one of five vouchers, and will have the option to do the second study.
  • A series of mini phone surveys that will take 1 minute to complete, to be completed 4 times per day for 14-days. You will download an app on your phone and answer questions about your hair pulling 4 times per day. After this you can enter a prize draw to win one of three vouchers.

Eligibility criteria
  •  Participants must be aged over 18
  • Must have Trichotillomania/hair pulling disorder
  • Able to communicate easily in English
