I’ve been picking for 11 or 12 years. It was less harmul picking (cuticles and the occasional scab) until a traumatic event I experienced almost 5 years ago. This event resulted in my traumatic brain injury. Ever since then I have not been able to stop picking my scalp. My hands are almost always on my scalp; driving, in class, doing anything. People notice and ask why I’m “always touching my hair.” I pick other places but this is the most humiliating for me. I havent gotten my hair done in years because I’m too embarrassed. I’ve lost a lot of hair. It’s noticeable my hair is very thin. I also have bald spots. I’ve tried to tell myself to pick ANYTHING else just do not pick your scalp, because I have very little hair now. My question is, does the hair grow back? I know hair doesn’t usually grow back over scar tissue, I’m basically just hoping someone has a personal story to prove otherwise?
