The Best Hair Systems for Trichotillomania


Living with trichotillomania can be challenging, but there are solutions that can help individuals regain their confidence and put an end to hair-pulling behaviors. In this blog post, we will explore the best hair systems for trichotillomania, including options such as mesh hair systems, polyurethane hair systems, and integration hair systems. Whether you're looking for a long-term solution or a temporary fix, we've got you covered.

Section 1: Understanding Trichotillomania

Trichotillomania is a hair-pulling disorder that affects many individuals around the world. The repetitive pulling of hair can lead to noticeable hair loss and emotional distress. It's important to address this disorder with empathy and seek appropriate solutions that provide a barrier effect for trichotillomania.

Section 2: Mesh Hair Systems: A Breathable Solution

One of the top hair systems for trichotillomania is the mesh hair system. This type of system is made with a lightweight and breathable mesh material, allowing the scalp to breathe while providing coverage for areas affected by hair loss. The mesh construction also allows for easy integration with existing hair, creating a natural and seamless look.

Section 3: Polyurethane Hair Systems: A Durable and Versatile Choice

For those seeking a more durable option, polyurethane hair systems are a great choice. These systems are made with a thin layer of polyurethane material that creates a strong and long-lasting bond with the scalp. They provide an excellent barrier effect for trichotillomania and can withstand regular wear and tear.

This system works best for complete hair loss, and we may tape it down until some of your natural hair grows, and then switch the system to one made of breathable mesh.

Section 4: Integration Hair Systems: Blending Beauty and Functionality

Integration hair systems offer a unique approach to managing trichotillomania. These systems combine the use of existing hair with specialized hairpieces, known as hair toppers. The toppers are seamlessly integrated with the individual's natural hair, providing coverage and volume to areas affected by hair pulling. This innovative solution allows for a natural look and easy maintenance. Our clients have grown their hair by wearing a hair topper since it creates a barrier to prevent pulling and raise awareness of their pulling behavior.  

Our hair systems are made of tightly woven wholes that allow the scalp to breathe but can not be touched. A larger whole integration system is not recommended since some have been known to break through the wholes.  

We recommend this hair system for those with sensitive scalps, that need The "barrier effect" that works best with an attached hair topper. We never shave or glue a hair system in place because our goal is to promote hair growth and not damage natural hair.  

Section 5: Stop Hair Pulling: Additional Tips and Strategies

While hair systems can be an effective solution for trichotillomania, it's important to address the underlying causes of hair-pulling behaviors. Alongside using hair systems, individuals can benefit from various strategies such as therapy, mindfulness techniques, and support groups. Seeking professional help and building a support network can contribute to long-term success in managing trichotillomania.

I once did a podcast with Aneela from HabitAware, she offers many solutions to keep your hands busy. She herself has been through a journey with Trich, and designed the HabitAware bracelet, connected to an app, to let you know when you are pulling. She has worked tirelessly with the BFRB community, and her voice has raised awareness.


Finding the best hair system for trichotillomania can be life-changing for individuals struggling with hair-pulling behaviors. Whether you opt for a mesh hair system, polyurethane hair system, or integration hair system, these solutions provide a barrier effect while promoting confidence and self-esteem. Remember to address the underlying causes of trichotillomania and implement additional strategies to stop hair-pulling behaviors. With the right support and tools, individuals can find freedom from trichotillomania and embrace a life of confidence and beauty.
