  • You need to take her to a psychiatrist. That is a sign of a mental disorder.

  • Try to get her to take a nap as soon as she gets tired, and soothe her before it escalates to hair pulling when she's angry.

  • a friend of mine's daughter had the same problem. she was completly bald on the one side. they tested her for stress and other disorder and found nothing. it lasted for about 2 or 3 years. they gave her a my little pony and she played with that hair and eventually left her own alone. it is worth a try.
