I have been pulling out my hair ever since I was around 6, it’s been coming and leaving and a few times I thought I permanently got rid of it only for it to come back a month later, now I feel like It’s pointless to even try to stop because it will only come back

What helped you stop previously?

@CKBlossom breaks from school, head thingies to cover my hair, gum, fidget toys, finger covers, stuff like that
