Help for Those Pulling Their Hair Out

Folks who suffer OCD and many other different conditions can often "pass" in society with little or no suspicion. Not so with compulsive hair-pulling (Trichotillomania), which highjacks a person's peace of mind and their looks. It also robs their pocketbooks. I can't tell you how many young women with whom I've worked spent thousands of dollars each year just to cover up the damages of Trich. But thanks to hair health expert Charlene Blacer, whose clientele is over 50% Trich-afflicted, relief is in sight. She has created a nonprofit effort,, which provides "Mane for a Year" assistance to disadvantaged folks with Trich to cover the costs of their hairpieces and replacement. Kudos, plaudits, and props to you, Charlene!
