Trichotillomania Awareness

Thank you, to whomever clicks this page to become informed about trichotillomania aka "Trich". Trich awareness may help someone dear to you or you yourself may need to learn about the disorder. My daughter has trichotillomania. 

Her confidence now is enough for me to extend Weave N Luxury to all looking to increase confidence when looking at your reflection, standing in front this disorder. The mental feelings that are associated with trich are feelings understood only by those who have trich. My daughter said to me, " I am afraid to look down because I do not know how much I have pulled out." I helped her feel luxurious, feeling luxurios is all I ever wanted to do as a little girl, so I crowned My Queen in luxury.
