When someone suffers from a disorder like trichotillomania it’s important for him or her to know that they’re not alone. Everyone gets stressed out but not all of us handle stress in the same way. Trichotillomania, or pulling out your own hair, is simply a reaction to anxiety. It’s no different than popping a pill or hiding out from the world. Some of the most beautiful and successful celebrities of today have admitted to struggling with this disorder.
Men drool over her and women want to be her. Actress Megan Fox of the “Transformers” franchise has been hospitalized and treated for trichotillomania several times and has been very open about her diagnosis. If you watch her on the big screen you would never guess she suffers from hair loss.
Best known for her roles in Magic Mike and Iron Man 2, Olivia Munn has been very forthcoming about her struggle with trichotillomania. In her case she would compulsively pull out her eyelashes. Fortunately, in this day and age we have access to false eyelashes.
Katy Perry is probably the most creative performer on stage right now so her costume changes and wigs seem appropriate. She also struggles with trichotillomania disorder and has found a way to creatively mask her hair loss. Her Katy Kats don’t seem to mind one bit.
Another classic beauty that publicly announced she accepts her trichotillomania diagnosis is Charlize Theron. As you can plainly see her hair loss has not slowed down her career and in fact her use of wigs often fits her roles perfectly.
Finally, a male celebrity came forward with his trichotillomania diagnosis back in 2008. The multi talented pop star Justin Timberlake suffers from this disorder but his overwhelmingly successful career has never suffered because of it.
