This phobia is often linked to hygiene concerns.  Some sufferers think hair is dirty. Afraid of having dandruff or lice, they may even fear their own hair and become preoccupied with removing all trace of it from their body.  For others, this fear is limited to hair that is detached from the body, and seeing a loose strand of hair can cause them to panic. The exact specifics of the hair that frightens each individual can vary.
