Compulsive hair-pulling disorder affects one in 50
FARGO – When Sandra Bodek was a little girl, she plucked the eyelashes from her dolls.
By the time she was 9, she was plucking her own. Her hair-pulling moved to her scalp around age 10.
Bodek, 36, of Fargo, suffers from trichotillomania, a compulsive disorder that causes people to pull hair from different parts of their bodies.
