I e had two students with that issue. Definitely anxiety. One just pulled hair, but the other pulled hair and bit the root end off and ate it. One tried to keep her hair pulled back tight in a bun because that kept her away from the spot she liked to pull from. The other one had a super short hair cut so she couldn’t grab the hair.

At least one was in therapy. They both took medication.
