Magic Mike star Olivia Munn suffers from trichotillomania

star Olivia Munn has revealed she has the hair-pulling disorder tricotillomania.
‘I don’t bite my nails, but I rip out my eyelashes,’ admits the actress, 32.
‘It doesn’t hurt, but it’s really annoying. Every time I run out of the house, I have to stop and pick up a whole set of fake eyelashes.’
explains: ‘Trichotillomania, a definite self-inflicted hair loss, occurs when hairs are repeatedly pulled out one by one.
‘The satisfaction of the feeling of the hair being pulled and also the soothing effect of pulling the hair out encourages the sufferer to pull out another, and so on.
‘It can go on for years because the hair from each follicle grows back as usual – at least at first.
‘Trichotillomania is a difficult habit to break- and the sufferer rarely admits to it. Occasionally psychological therapy is needed.’
