************How long has she had the problem? In my experience I noticed once I became habituated with the action it seemed harder to control the behavior. It's possible she's searching for attention>? Or it could be behavior fed from boredom. I find if I don't have time to fidget with my hair or if I'm in a public place I won't persist in doing the hair pulling.
