What shall I do?
She just chews her hair 24/7. When she's trying to get to sleep she just eats it!

Is she just chewing on it or actually eating it? If she's eating it, this is a psychological condition. It really is best treated by professional therapists. There are some behavior modification techniques that have been shown to be successful, she won't necessarily need medication. She has to be careful that the hair doesn't build up in her stomach or intestines. Good luck!
