Dear Hair puller
Unlikely that your daughter will learn the habit from you.
You are not alone - it is a common problem and associated with a type of obsession-compulsion syndrome - you can get behavioural treatment and there is definitely medication that you can take. You don't really have control over this - even if you think you have. The right person to see is a psychiatrist. It is caused by a hormonal imbalance in the brain and nothing to be ashamed of ( someone with a hormone imbalance of the pancreas causing diabetes are not!)
Let me know if you found a suitable doctor to discuss this with and how you're doing!
